The workshop 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, including mock modular forms, Maass forms, Jacobi forms, Siegel modular forms, special values of L-functions, elliptic curves, random matrices, quadratic forms, computation, representations of automorphic forms, applications of modular forms, etc. We aim to generate and sustain a friendly, supportive atmosphere, providing encouragement to young researchers, mentoring opportunities for more established researchers, as well as a forum for exchanging ideas and forming new collaborations. Researchers at all career stages are encouraged to present talks; we also wecome posters on research in automorphic forms. The workshop takes place in the second week of the meeting, which is 7th - 11th July 2014. The talks will take place in the mathematics department of the University of Bristol. The workshop is organised in partnership with Clay Mathematics Institute, with additional funding from the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, and the National Science Foundation.
The schedule, with a list of abstracts, is available here.
If you would like to give a talk, please submit your abstract by filling out this form.
Please register by emailing the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate whether
- you would like to give a talk;
- your attendence depends on funding, and if so, what your estimated travel costs are.
Conference participants will be asked to pay a £30 registration fee, although this will not be charged in addition to the Summer Research School registration fee, and it may be lowered or waived as is appropriate. The registration fees pay for the daily coffee, tea, and snacks, as well as the refreshments for the Wednesday socialising event. If you would also like to attend the research school, please follow the instructions on this page.
To pay the registration fee, please follow this link.
About the workshop
The workshop talks will be 20, 30, and 40 minutes in length; researchers at all stages of their careers are encouraged to present their work. Each day will begin with a talk that is, at least in part, a survey of some aspect of automorphic forms.
We invite participants to bring posters on some of their research in automorphic forms that we will display outside the workshop lecture hall in the University of Bristol Mathematics Building.
Speed-talksFollowing the success of "speed-talks" in the Texas-Oklahoma Representations and Automorphic Forms series of conferences, and in the spirit of the BBC Radio 4 show “Just a Minute”, we will have a session of 2-minute talks where the speakers are charged with presenting some mathematics, without hesitation, deviation, or repetition. Such talks provide a lighthearted opportunity to learn about others' research, and it will be scheduled at the end of a morning or afternoon session, so that discussions can continue following the session.
Other planned activities:
- Poster-making session.
- Panel session, focused on "Encouraging and supporting diversity in the mathematics community." Please see this relevant article, which was discussed during the panel.
- Socialising event, on Wednesday evening of the workshop.
