Short description of the event: 

Jean-Louis Loday, directeur de recherche CNRS in Strasbourg, suddently passed away on June 6, 2012. This conference, in his memory, aims to give a general picture of the research that he passed down to the mathematical community, notably the study of the interplays between algebraic K-theory and cyclic homology, and the applications of the theory of algebraic operads.

Invited speakers:
Pierre Cartier (IHES)
Alain Connes (Collège de France)
Pierre-Louis Curien (Université Paris 7)
