In the last couple of decades the functorial viewpoint proved to be a powerful tool in obtaining strong results in the representation theory of finite groups, one of them being the description by Serge Bouc of the structure of the Dade group of a finite p-group.

The aim of the conference is to present the latest advances in the use of functorial methods in representation theory and to enhance the interaction of the participants in this area.

NEW! All talks take place in room BI A0 448  of the Bernoulli Center (CIB)..Here is the detailed program and the list of talks.
