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. This year, the 2019 Automorphic Forms Workshop will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at Duquesne University.

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. For the second time, this year we will host a one day graduate student bootcamp on March 6th, 2019.

Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk which is typically 20, 30, or 40 minutes in length. This year, due to extraordinary demand, the vast majority of talks will be 20 minutes. In addition, for the second time, the Automorphic Forms Workshop will feature 3 minute speed talks.
