Over the last 30 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 have similar panel sessions this year as well.
This year, the 2017 Automorphic Forms Workshop will be held in Johnson City, Tennessee at Rogers-Stout Hall on the East Tennessee State University campus. The Workshop is being organized by faculty at East Tennessee State University, the University of North Texas, and the University of Oklahoma.
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) to pay for drinks and snacks.
We will provide information about local childcare options, lactation rooms, etc., for those traveling with small children.
Email the organizers if you are interested in attending. This will strengthen our application for NSF funding.Clear your calendar for the week of March 6-9 in 2017 so that you can attend.
Do some awesome mathematics so that you will have something interesting to present.
