Young Functional Analysts’ Workshop and next NBFAS in Oxford 23-24 March 2012

Although I usually focus on undergraduate-level mathematics “Explaining Mathematics” is important at all levels of maths, including postgraduate level.

See the message from Joachim Zacharias below and the PDF poster concerning the Young Functional Analysts’ Workshop and next NBFAS in Oxford 23-24 March 2012


Message from Joachim Zacharias


Dear all,

Please find below an annoucement of the Young Functional Analysts’
Workshop (YFAW) send to me by David Seifert.

This workshop will be combined with the next NBFAS 23-24 March 2012 at Oxford. Speakers for the next NBFAS are

* Gilles Pisier and
* Mikael Roerdam

I have attached the poster for the YFAW which also mentions the NBFAS.

I think this `double’ meeting is very attractive in particular for
postgraduate students and should be publicised widely. Therefore I would like to encourage everyone to put copies of the poster on as many
notice boards and walls as possible and let people know about this
upcoming event.

Many thanks and best wishes,


————————————–Dear all,This is to announce the next Young Functional Analysts’ Workshop (YFAW),
which will be held at the University of Oxford on 21 and
22 March 2012.  The workshop is aimed at early-stage researchers
(postgraduates and post-docs) in Functional Analysis and related
areas and has been running successfully for several years.  It offers
participants an opportunity both to present their own work
in front of a sympathetic audience and to get to know less familiar areas
of current research in Functional Analysis through talks
given by other young researchers as well as invited speakers.  Our line-up
of invited speakers is:

*  Prof. Charles Batty (University of Oxford, UK)
*  Dr Matthew Daws (University of Leeds, UK)
*  Dr Olga Maleva (University of Birmingham, UK)
*  Prof. Wilhelm Winter (University of Münster, Germany)

We are delighted to have been awarded a generous grant by the London
Mathematical Society, which will be put towards subsidising
the costs of travel and accommodation of UK-based research students.
Unless you would prefer to organise your accommodation
independently, we would be happy to provide you with a room in St John’s
College, Oxford, for the three nights of 20, 21 and 22
March 2012.  This will allow participants to arrive in good time for a
drinks reception in the evening of Tuesday 20 March and to
stay in Oxford following a Workshop Dinner on Thursday 22 March, both of
which will be paid for largely out our grant.  To cover
administrative costs there will, however, be a registration fee of £20.

Our workshop will be followed by a meeting of the North British Functional
Analysis Seminar (NBFAS), to be held in Oxford on 23
and 24 March 2012 with Gilles Pisier (Paris VI University, France, and
Texas A&M University, USA) and Mikael Rørdam (University of
Copenhagen, Denmark) as speakers.  Should you wish to attend this event,
too, we may be able to arrange for your stay at St John’s
College to be extended by a night or two (although the cost of this will
not be covered by our grant).

If you are interested in taking part in the Young Functional Analysts’
Workshop 2012, please visit the YFAW website at []

for further details, including information on how to register.  Even
though we strongly encourage participants to take advantage
of the welcoming environment and consider giving a talk, those who would
prefer not to give a talk are still very welcome to

We hope to see you in Oxford in March.  If in the meantime you have any
questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us
via email at or

Best wishes,
David and Matt
