As has always been the case with the automorphic forms workshop, participants are encouraged to contribute talks on all aspects of automorphic forms and related topics.
In 2016, we especially encourage speakers focusing on adelic viewpoint of automorphic forms and its connection with the Langlands program; however, again, any and all talks related to automorphic forms will be considered.
Over the last 29 years, the Annual Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from students to new PhD's to established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement. For accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as a forum for exchanging ideas.
The workshop has become internationally recognized for both its high-quality research talks and its supportive atmosphere for junior researchers. Participants present cutting-edge research in all areas related to automorphic forms. These include mock modular forms, Maass wave forms, elliptic curves, Siegel and Jacobi modular forms, special values of L-functions, random matrices, quadratic forms, applications of modular forms, and many other topics.
In addition to research talks, the workshop has, in the past years, featured panel discussion sessions on the topics of grant writing, mentoring and research partnerships, REUs and outreach, and opportunities for international collaborations. Based on the success of these sessions, we had similar panel sessions this year as well.
This year, the 2016 Automorphic Forms Workshop was held in Winston Salem, North Carolina at Manchester Hall on Wake Forest University campus. The Workshop was organized by faculty at Wake Forest University, Davidson College and the University of Oregon.
Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk which is typically 20, 30, or 40 minutes in length (mostly your choice). We are asking that participants giving 20 minute talks use slides only.There was a registration fee of $40. Please plan to pay this in cash or a check when you arrive at the conference. We were unfortunately unable to process credit cards.
We provided information about local childcare options, lactation rooms, etc., for those traveling with small children.
Have a safe trip back. Do some awesome mathematics to present at AFW 2017, to be hosted by the University of Oklahoma.
