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 plan to have similar panel sessions this year as well.
This year, the 2016 Automorphic Forms Workshop will be held in Winston Salem, North Carolina at Manchester Hall on Wake Forest University campus. The Workshop will be 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 will be a registration fee (amount to be determined. Last year, the registration fee was $50). Please plan to pay this in cash or a check. We will unfortunately be unable to process credit cards.
We will provide information about local childcare options, lactation rooms, etc., for those traveling with small children.
Register for the conference by emailing the organizers. If you wish to give a talk, you should submit your title and abstract by January 1, 2016 at the absolute latest. When you email the organizers, please indicate if you will be applying for funding (in which case, you should let us know if you are a US citizen or permanent resident) and provide some sense of how much funding you will be requesting. The deadline for funding applications is also January 1, 2016.
Reserve a hotel room for the week of March 7-10 2016, so that you will be able to attend the workshop. The organizers have reserved blocks of rooms at several hotels, with information on our travel information page.
Pass along the address for this website to anyone that you think might be interested.
