Over the last 23 years, the Annual Automorphic Forms Workshop has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from students, new PhD's, and established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement. For accomplished researchers, it offers the opportunity to mentor, and it provides 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 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.

Our topics include:

  1. Connections between automorphic forms and various branches of mathematics
  2. Motivations in the theory of automorphic forms
  3. Tenure-track positions in a liberal arts college vs. a research university
  4. How to choose and what to expect from a postdoctoral job

There is a $40 registration fee. This fee will be used towards a daily continental breakfast, light refreshments throughout the day, and conference materials. Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk which is typically 20, 30, or 40 minutes in length.

If you are planning to attend this workshop, please contact the organizers by December 1st and include the following information:

We will try our best to accommodate your requested length of talk; schedule permitting.
