<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Groups and dynamics have played an integral role in the study of operator algebras ever since the pioneering work of Murray and von Neumann. Over the last couple of decades this relationship has been intensifying in various directions on both the von Neumann algebra and C*-algebra sides. This conference promotes interaction and collaboration within and across these streams by bringing together experts in groups, dynamics, and diverse facets of operator algebra theory.</p>
