Building Bridges: 2nd EU/US Summer School + Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics

Description

Automorphic forms are present in almost every area of modern number theory. In recent decades there has been a starburst of activity and progress in this broad area, leading to many new directions, applications, and links with other areas within mathematics and mathematical physics. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together researchers from the EU, US, and elsewhere to understanding the latest developments in the subject, and to provide an environment in which researchers can freely exchange ideas and form new connections.

The research school (poster) aims provide graduate students and early career researchers with training on some topics that are having great impact on current research in automorphic forms. The school takes place in the first week of the meeting, and will be comprised of three 2-day intensive mini-courses, each team-taught by a pair of experts, and supplemented by afternoon problems sessions

The workshop, which takes place in the second week of the meeting, aims to foster and strengthen a long-lasting exchange between automorphic forms researchers in the EU and the US. The focus includes all areas of research related to automorphic forms. Like previous meetings, particular effort will be made to generate and sustain a friendly, supportive atmosphere, providing encouragement to young researchers, mentoring opportunities for more established researchers.
