To honour one of the most influential mathematicians from Belgium, a conference is organized in his memory, in collaboration with Belgian Mathematical Society.
The event "Algebras, Geometries, and Groups" will take place on December 20 and 21, in the Royal Academy of Belgium, Rue Ducale 1 in Bruxelles.
Attendance is open to everyone, but registration is compulsory.
