This conference will focus on recent developements of the representation theory of algebraic groups and quantum groups,  especially on the topics such as modular representations of algebraic groups,  representations of quantum groups and crystal bases,  representations of affine Lie algebras,  representations of affine Hecke algebras, modular or ordinary representations of finite Chevalley groups,  representations of complex reflection groups and associated Hecke algebras.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by the Mathematical Society of Japan in the series Advanced Studies in Pure Mathematics.

Hotels in the central part of Tokyo are, in general, rather expensive. We have blocked the following two hotels for the conference. If you want us to book the hotel, please let us know the necessary information, such as the name of the hotel, the type of the room, the date of arrival, and the date of depature by e-mail or fax.. Please be sure to send it to us before the end of June, 2001.
If you are interested in other hotels in Tokyo, please make your own hotel reservation. You will find some infromation from here ( city hotels in Tokyo ) on the accomodation in Tokyo. In Shinjuku, Ikebukuro area, there are some hotels, which are not so expensive and convenient to get to the campus (by train or subway).

From Narita airport to the downtown of Tokyo, trains or buses are available. The trains leave from the underground level of the terminal building. JR Narita express connects the airport with JR Tokyo station, while Keisei skyliner connects it with Keisei Ueno station. It takes roughly one hour by either of them. Limousine buses connect the airport with Tokyo city air terminal or JR Tokyo station. It takes one hour or one hour and a half.

Sophia University is located on the central part of Tokyo. The nearest station is JR Yotsuya station. It takes 15 minutes from Tokyo to Yotsuya by JR chuo-line. You may also use a subway, Marunouchi-line or Nanboku-line, to get to Yotsuya. After going out the wicket of JR Yotsuya station, follow the direction to Kojimachi exit. Then you will soon find a modern catholic church (St. Ignatius church) at the opposite side of the big street, which is a part of the university campus. It is just 5 minutes walk from the station to the campus.
