This satellite conference of the Second Joint AMS-IMU Meeting is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Joseph Donin, who suddenly passed away in January 2004. One of the fields Joseph Donin was actively working in was the deformation of algebraic structures on geometric spaces. He devoted his last 16 years to equivariant quantization of G-manifolds. The conference will cover equivariant quantization and related topics of quantum algebra and representation theory. Applications to mathematical physics including integrable systems will also be addressed.
