Subfactors in Maui 2019
July 15-19, 2019
Maui, Hawaii
The Maui Sunset

This workshop will explore the latest developments in the theories of subfactors and planar algebras, along with their applications in conformal field theory, quantum information, and (enriched) quantum symmetries.

Local information

Many participants will stay at the Maui Sunset Condos in Kihei, HI. Condos may be booked through Kumulani vacations (caution: Kumulani also has condos at other properties!) or American Resort Marketing . There are also many nearby alternatives. There may be very limited space available in condos booked by the organizers; please contact us for more information. The airport on Maui is Kahului Airport (OGG). We will help organize carpools from the airport to the Maui Sunset as the conference grows nearer.
