The 2023 Summer Informal Regional Functional Analysis Seminar (SUMIRFAS) will take place July 28-30 at Texas A&M University in College Station as part of the Workshop in Analysis and Probability. All talks will be in the Blocker Building, which is on Ireland St. just south of University Dr. on the Texas A&M campus.

SUMIRFAS is an annual three-day conference that aims to cover a broad spectrum of topics in analysis and probability. It is one of the peaks of activity in the Workshop every summer. Although nominally a regional seminar, SUMIRFAS has grown into an international event.

The following speakers have agreed to give a talk at SUMIRFAS 2023:

  • David Blecher (University of Houston)
  • Francesco Fidaleo (Università di Roma "Tor Vergata")
  • Chris Gartland (University of California San Diego)
  • Tomasz Kania (Czech Academy of Sciences, and Jagiellonian University)
  • Galina Livshyts (Georgia Tech)
  • Tao Mei (Baylor University)
  • Pavlos Motakis (York University)
  • Paul Müller ( Johannes Kepler Universität)
  • Eva Pernecká (Czech Technical University in Prague)
  • The usual SUMIRFAS BBQ dinner is scheduled for Saturday July 29

    Immediately preceding SUMIRFAS, from July 24 to 28, there will be a Concentration Week on Ideals and Algebras of Operators on Banach Spaces organized by Pavlos Motakis, Bill Johnson, and Chris Phillips.

    We expect to be able to cover housing for most participants from support the National Science Foundation has provided for the Workshop. Minorities, women, graduate students, and young researchers are especially encouraged to apply. Please fill in the following registration form to let us know when you will need a hotel room:
