Preliminary Announcement

New developments in K-theory

A special K-theory Day will be held on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 of June in Oxford to celebrate Dan Quillen's 60th birthday.

See the official web site at

It is now thirty years since Dan Quillen invented algebraic K-theory, and since then the subject has developed in many directions. The conference will bring together experts from different branches of mathematics to give an up to date perspective on the subject. Speakers will include among others J. Cuntz (Münster) and A. Connes (Paris).

There will be a conference dinner on the evening of Friday 22. For registration and accommodation please contact Ulrike Tillmann <>.
