This workshop is part of a six month thematic program on Automorphic Forms at the Fields Institute in the spring of 2003.

The goal of the workshop is to discuss recent progress in areas of automorphic forms, and number theory. There have been many exciting new developments in the theory of automorphic forms recently such as the functoriality of the symmetric cube and symmetric fourth power L-function of a cusp form of GL(2). These have many applications in number theory. This workshop offers a timely opportunity for an analysis of these new developments and their applications to number theory and automorphic forms. We will bring experts in automorphic forms and analytic number theory to study and explore new applications of automorphic forms in analytic number theory, and vice versa.
