Originally, derived categories were used in algebraic geometry, but in the recent past their application has spread to many branches of mathematics, including non-commutative algebra, representation theory and algebraic topology. As a result, there are now many different approaches and emphases involved in their study.

The main purpose of this conference on Derived Categories is to present to the uninitiated some of these different approaches, and to give experts from the various fields the opportunity to meet and discuss their work. To encourage research students and novices in derived categories to participate, in the mornings there will be several series of introductory lectures by international experts on the basics of derived categories, and on the use of derived categories in various areas of application as above. We have also invited a number of speakers to present their recent work in the afternoons.

The meeting is part of the European Science Foundation Scientific Programme ``Noncommutative Geometry'' (NOG).

Some financial support for local expenses may be available, enquiries should be directed to a member of the organising committee; priority will be given to people affiliated to a university in one of the NOG participating countries, which are Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Norway, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland

We hope to obtain some financial support for British participants, but are awaiting the results of grant applications.
