   McKay correspondence gives a bridge between geometry and algebra of quotient singularities. It was observed by John McKay in 1979 and generalized in various ways, to Higher dimension, positive characteristics, and so on. Three dimensional McKay correspondence is related with a topological invariant of Mirror Symmetry in Super string theory and the invariant was defined as a new mathematical invariant by Victor Batyrev around 2000. To study this correspondence, we used toric geometry, combinatorics and non-commutative algebra and so on. We would like to share recent developments of the McKay correspondence and consider new problems together. Moreover, we would like to ask young participants to bring their posters.
