Registration

There is no registration fee; participants are, however, encouraged to register early to facilitate room reservations, to ensure the receipt of all emailed conference updates, and to help students identify potential roommates.

Format

Two days of mini-courses, followed by a weekend conference.

Mini-course lecturers:

Julia Gordon, University of British Columbia
Motivic Integration and its Applications to p-adic Groups

Ju-Lee Kim, University of Illinois at Chicago, M.I.T. Visiting Professor
Recent progress in the classification of supercuspidal representations

Phil Kutzko, University of Iowa
Plancherel measure and reducibility of parabolic induction via types and
covers

Overview:

The representation theory of algebraic 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 recent developments in representation theory, and to help foster an environment which encourages the lively interaction of researchers from all disciplines. The subsequent weekend conference will allow researchers to share their latest results and ideas in a broad range of related areas.

This workshop is the second of a series; the Fields Institute Workshop on the Representation Theory of p-adic Groups was held at the University of Ottawa in May 2004.

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