Workshop on Quantization and Reduction 2013

Scientific programme

The idea of the workshop is to bring together experts interested in different aspects of quantization and reduction in an informal atmosphere.

Time and Space

The workshop starts on the 18th of March and ends on the 21nd of March. It will take place in Übungsraum 4 in the Mathematics Department of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg. 


The workshop is supported by the Emerging Fields Project Quantum Geometry funded by the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg via its Emerging Fields Programme.


The workshop is organized by Henrique Bursztyn (IMPA, Rio de Janeiro) and Stefan Waldmann (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg).

Travel information

By plane

Nuremberg has an international airport which several European companies operate. From the airport, you can take the Subway U2 to Nuremberg Central Station (ca 12 minutes). From Nuremberg Central station, you can take a local train to Erlangen Central Station (between 15 and 25 minutes).  A taxi from Nuremberg airport or Nuremberg Central Station to Erlangen costs about 25 to 30 euros.

For international flights, it might be easier to head for an arrival in Frankfurt and take a train from there to Erlangen. You might have to change trains in Würzburg or Nuremberg.

By train

The easiest will be to go to Nuremberg by train. There will be a lot of ICE trains from all directions. Then there are local trains (S-Bahn or Regionalexpress) from Nuremberg to Erlangen which take between 15 and 25 minutes. These trains operate very often during the day.

The train schedule can be obtained online via

Bus to the campus

From the train station in Erlangen you can take a bus to the south  campus: either take Bus 287 direction "Erlangen Sebaldussiedlung" or the Bus 293 direction "Bruck/Eichendorffschule".  Exit the bus at the bus stop "Technische Fakultät". From there you have to cross the campus to reach the Mathematics Department. The buses will take some 20min and operates ca. every 20min during the day.

The bus schedule as well as the local trains from Nuremberg to Erlangen can be obtained online via
