## Seminar on Representation Theory and Related Areas

This seminar emerged in 2010 from informal meetings between mathematicians from the Universities of Coimbra, Lisbon and Porto. The 6th Workshop on Representation Theory and Related Areas, to be held at Universidade do Algarve, aims to pursue and develop interactions between mathematicians working in Representation Theory, Geometry, Combinatorics and other relevant fields.

## Higher Structures Lisbon (deformation theory, operads, higher categories developments & applications)

The aim of this meeting is to stimulate interaction between people, who are working in higher structures interpreted in the broad sense (to mean higher stacks, $L_\infty$- and $A_\infty$-algebras, Batalin–Vilkovisky algebras, higher category theory, operad theory and related areas).

## Postdoctoral position in Ergodic Theory/Extreme Value Theory

One postdoctoral position is available within the research project “Statistics of extreme events and dynamics of recurrence” - FAPESP/19805/2014, co-funded by FCT and FAPESP.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics or in a related field, completed at the time of application.
