In recent years semigroup theory has grown as a major research area in Mathematics which includes many subjects of interest. On one hand semigroups theory may be regarded as a generalization to group theory and in this context semigroup theory plays the similar role in the study of partial symmetries as group theory have in the study of symmetries on the other hand semigoup is the multiplicative structure of a ring and in this regard it has a major role in operator theory research. Moreover semigroups theory is one of the areas in Mathematics where Kerala has made significant contributions. Semigroups and Semigroup of Operators (Operator Algebras in general) are major research areas in our university as well as in several other universities and research institutes in this part of the country. Presently a good number of students are working in this area (specifically semigroups theory and related topics) and in operator algebras in our department. The Department of Mathematics, CUSAT has a tradition of organizing international conference biannually. The last conference, ICSAOT-2014, conducted during February 26-28, 2014 was well received and was a great success. The following were among distinguished professors who were speakers of ICSAOT-2014.
- Prof. John C.Meakin, University of Nebraska, USA,
- Prof. Laszlo Marki, Budapest, Hungary,
- Prof. Michael Volkov, Ekaterinburg, Russia.
- Prof. Jorge Almeida, University of Porto, Portugal,
- Prof. Pascal Weil, University of Bordeaux, France.,
- Prof Alessandra Cherubini, Polento, Italy
The International Conference on Semigroups and Algebras proposed to be organized during September 17-19, 2015 will be an excellent occasion for young researchers and experts to interact .
ICSAA-2015 will be an occasion to honour Prof. K.S.S. Nambooripad who is turning eighty in 2015.
