Mini-Workshop: Generalizations of Symmetric Spaces

This workshop brought together experts from the areas of algebraic Lie theory, invariant theory, Kac–Moody theory and the theories of Tits buildings and of symmetric spaces. The main focus was on topics related to symmetric spaces in order to stimulate progress in current research projects or trigger new collaboration via comparison, analogy, transfer, generalization, and unification of methods. Specific topics that were covered include Kac–Moody symmetric spaces, double coset decompositions of (groups of rational points of) algebraic groups and Kac–Moody groups, and symmetric/Gelfand pairs in Lie algebras.
