Over the last
17 years, the Annual Workshop has remained a small and friendly
conference. Those attending range from new PhD's to well 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
has become internationally recognized for both its high-quality
research talks and its supportive atmosphere for junior researchers.
Participants will present cutting-edge research in all areas related
to automorphic forms, including Maass wave forms, elliptic curves,
Siegel and Jacobi modular forms, special values of L-functions,
random matrices, quadratic forms, computation, applications of
modular forms, etc.
to research talks, last year's workshop featured discussion sessions
on the topics of mentoring and research partnerships, REUs and
outreach, and opportunities for international collaborations.
Based on the success of these sessions, we plan to have discussion
sessions this year. Our topics will be (1)
applying for grants & other funding opportunities, and
(2) encouraging and retaining
women & other under-represented groups in the number theory
There is a
$30 registration fee. This money will be used to buy snacks, like
fresh bagels, schmears, fruit, fresh juice, coffee and tea (and
half&half) at breakfast time, as well as lighter snacks, coffee
and tea throughout the day. In addition, your registration fee
pays for your own conference coffee mug (out of which you must
drink the available liquids), and for the conference party. Each
participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk (typically,
20, 40 or 60 minutes in length---mostly your choice).
