Tiago Cruz (Stuttgart): Relative dominant dimension and quality of split quasihereditary covers
Abstract: The dominant dimension of a finitedimensional algebra A is a homological invariant measuring the connection between module categories Amod and Bmod, where B is the endomorphism algebra of a faithful projectiveinjective Amodule.
In this talk, we will discuss generalisations of dominant dimension and how they can be used to measure the quality of split quasihereditary covers. The Schur algebra S(d, d) together with its faithful projectiveinjective module is a classic example of a split quasihereditary cover of the group algebra of the symmetric group on d letters.

Hernán Giraldo (Medellin): Shapes of AuslanderReiten triangles in the stable category of modules over repetitive algebras
Abstract: Let k be an algebraically closed field, let A be a finite dimensional kalgebra, and let Â be the repetitive algebra of A. For the stable category stmod(Â) of finitely generated left Âmodules, we show that the irreducible morphisms fall into three canonical forms: (i) all the component morphisms are split monomorphisms; (ii) all of them are split epimorphisms; (iii) there is exactly one irreducible component. We next use this fact in order to describe the shape of the AuslanderReiten triangles in stmod(Â). We use the fact (and prove) that every AuslanderReiten triangle in stmod(Â) is induced from an AuslanderReiten sequence of finitely generated left Âmodules. Finally, we will talk about applications of this last result.

Tobias Barthel (Bonn): Stratifying integral representations of finite groups
Abstract: Classifying all integral representations of finite groups up to isomorphism is essentially impossible. In this talk, we will introduce an integral version of the stable module category for a finite group G and then explain how to use it to give a `generic' classification of integral Grepresentations. Our results globalize the modular case established by Benson, Iyengar, and Krause and relies on the notion of stratification in tensor triangular geometry developed in joint work with Heard and Sanders. Time permitting, I will discuss some further directions.

AdamChristiaan van Roosmalen (Hasselt): Auslander's formula and correspondence for exact categories
Abstract: Following Auslander's philosophy, one can study a small abelian category A by studying the category of finitely presented functors on A. Auslander's formula provides a way to move back: one can recover A as the quotient of the category of finitely presented functors on A by the Serre subcategory of all effaceable functors.
One impediment to formulating a version of Auslander's formula for an exact category E is that the category of finitely presented functors on E is independent of the chosen exact structure: it only depends on the underlying additive category. To address this, we introduce the category of admissibly presented functors on an exact category. In this talk, I will focus on this category of admissibly presented functors, and use it to formulate a version of Auslander's formula and correspondence for exact categories.
This talk is based on joint work with Ruben Henrard and Sondre Kvamme.

Scott Balchin (Bonn): The smashing spectrum of a tt category
Abstract: In joint work with Greg Stevenson, we prove that the frame of smashing tensor ideals of a big ttcategory is always spatial. As such, by Stone duality, we are afforded a space: the smashing spectrum. In this talk, I will report on the construction of this new invariant via lattice theoretic techniques, and its relation to the Balmer spectrum. In particular, we will see that there is a surjective comparison map which detects the failure of the telescope conjecture.

Håvard Terland (Trondheim): Identifying components of mutation quivers
Abstract: Tautilting theory completes tilting theory from the perspective of mutation. Letting points be supporttau tilting pairs and arrows indicate (left) mutation, one then obtains a socalled mutation quiver whose underlying graph is regular.
The goal of this talk will be to introduce tautilting theory and discuss recent efforts to better understand the connected components of (the underlying graphs of) mutation quivers of support tautilting pairs.

Kaveh Mousavand (Kingston): Orbits of bricks of finite dimensional algebras
Abstract: In 2014, AdachiIyamaReiten introduced the tautilting theory of finite dimensional algebras to fix the deficiency of mutation of tilting modules. The subject soon received a lot of attention and developed in various directions. Around the same time, ChindrisKinserWeyman studied the moduli spaces of quiver representations, in particular the behaviour of Schur representations (bricks) of finite dimensional algebras. In this talk, we try to relate these two lines of research. More specifically, motivated by a conjectural geometric counterpart for the algebraic notion of tautilting finiteness, we treat module varieties of finite dimensional algebras, in particular the orbit of bricks. We show that, unlike arbitrary bricks, those used for the labelling of the lattice of functorially finite torsion classes always admit open orbits. From this, we obtain a conceptual proof of the counterpart of the first BrauerThrall conjecture for bricks. We push these results further in the treatment of another BrauerThrall type conjecture which is still open in full generality.
This is based on my Joint work with Charles Paquette (Royal Military College, Canada).

Joseph Chuang (London): Rank functions on triangulated categories
Abstract: A rank function is a nonnegative realvalued, additive, translationinvariant function on the objects of a triangulated category satisfying the triangle inequality on distinguished triangles. Rank functions on the perfect derived category of a ring are related to Sylvester rank functions on finitely presented modules, and therefore, via the work of Cohn and Schofield, to representations of the ring over skew fields. In my talk I will focus on examples. This is joint work with Andrey Lazarev.

Paolo Stellari (Milano): Uniqueness of enhancements: derived and geometric categories
Abstract: In this talk we address several open questions and generalize the existing results about the uniqueness of enhancements for triangulated categories which arise as derived categories of abelian categories or from geometric contexts. If time permits, we will also discuss applications to the description of exact equivalences. This is joint work with A. Canonaco and A. Neeman.

Martin Kalck: A surface and a threefold with equivalent singularity categories
Abstract: We start with an introduction to singularity categories and equivalences between them. In particular, we recall known results about singular equivalences between commutative rings, which go back to Knörrer, Yang, Kawamata and a joint work with Karmazyn. Then we explain a new singular equivalence between an affine surface and an affine threefold. This seems to be the first (nontrivial) example of a singular equivalence involving rings of even and odd Krull dimension.

Norihiro Hanihara (Nagoya): Yoneda algebras from additive generators
Abstract: Yoneda algebras form a class of algebras which have widely been studied in ring theory and representation theory. They are defined for a ring A and an Amodule M as the direct sum of Ext^i_A(M,M) over all i endowed with the Yoneda product. We discuss these Yoneda algebras in the following setting: A is a finite dimensional algebra of finite representation type, and M is the additive generator for the category of Amodules. We will give some fundamental results on such Yoneda algebras, such as coherence, Gorenstein property, periodicity, and a description of the stable category of CohenMacaulay modules.

Job Rock (Boston): Composition series of arbitrary cardinality
Abstract: We discuss a generalization of the notion of a composition series in an abelian category to one of arbitrary cardinality. Then we discuss sufficient axioms that yield "Jordan—Hölder—Schreier like" theorems. Examples of these settings include pointwise finitedimensional persistence modules and Prüfer modules. We will conclude with evidence that suggests the axioms are necessary for our "Jordan—Hölder—Schreier like" theorems. This is joint work with Eric J. Hanson.

Sondre Kvamme (Uppsala): Admissibly presented functors
Abstract: Wanting to extend the functorial approach of Auslander to exact categories, we introduce the category of admissibly presented functors mod_{adm}(E) for an exact category E. Using this category, we extend Auslanders formula from abelian to exact categories. Furthermore, we characterize exact categories equivalent to categories of the form mod_{adm}(E), and we show that they have properties similar to module categories of Auslander algebras. For a fixed idempotent complete category C, we use this construction to show that exact structures on C are in bijection with certain resolving subcategories of mod C, and we compare this with the bijection to certain Serre subcategories of mod C due to Enomoto. This is joint work with Ruben Henrard and AdamChristiaan Van Roosmalen.

Rene Marczinzik (Stuttgart): Homological algebra and combinatorics
Abstract: We show that the incidence algebra of a finite lattice L is Auslander regular if and only if L is distributive. As an application we show that the order dimension of L coincides with the global dimension of its incidence algebra when L has at least two elements and we give a categorification of the rowmotion bijection for distributive lattices. At the end we discuss the Auslander regular property for other objects coming from combinatorics. This is joint work with Osamu Iyama.
We also report on recent joint work with Aaron Chan, Erik Darpö and Osamu Iyama on fractionally CalabiYau algebras and their trivial extension algebras with relations to combinatorics and lattices.

XiaoWu Chen (Hefei): Skew group categories, algebras associated to Cartan matrices and folding of root lattices
Abstract: The folding of root lattices is fundamental in Lie theory when getting from the simplylaced cases to the nonsimplylaced cases. Following Gabriel and GeissLeclercSchroer, the relevant root lattices are categorified by certain module categories. We obtain a categorification of the folding projection, namely a certain functor between the module categories whose K_0shadow is the folding projection. The main tools are skew group categories and finite EI categories of Cartan type. This is joint with Ren Wang at USTC.
