Lecture
I:

Room 1,

**INFINITE
ALGEBRAS**

We will discuss some
recent advances in the classification of

infinite-dimensional (associative, Lie, super) algebras.

Lecture
II:

Room
233,

**Free pro-P groups and
polynomial identities.**

It is an old problem whether the free pro-p group is linear.

This problem is related to the theory of algebras with polynomial

identities and, surprisingly, to Lie algebras graded by root systems.

Lecture
III:

Room 1,

**Towards a Geometric Ring
Theory**

There is
considerable interest in developing a ring-theoretic

analogue of geometric group theory.

We will review recent
attempts in this direction.
