Conference schedule

Overview:

The representation theory of p-adic groups is a blossoming area of research which has seen many exciting developments over the past several years. It serves as a cross-roads for several disciplines, including number theory, Lie theory, automorphic forms and harmonic analysis. The influx of so many ideas from several different areas has the two-fold effect of providing rich opportunities for collaborative discoveries, while at the same time rendering the subject somewhat inaccessible to most.

The goal of the mini-course portion of the workshop is thus to offer an introduction to some of the important themes in p-adic representation theory, and to help foster an environment which encourages the lively interaction of researchers from all disciplines. The subsequent weekend conference will follow the model of the recent (and very popular) Midwest Workshops, with emphasis on the newest results and ideas, and includes a special lecture by Paul Sally.

Please send expressions of interest to Monica Nevins (mnevins@uottawa.ca). Graduate students and new Ph.D.'s are especially encouraged to attend.
