### OVERVIEW

This one-week meeting will focused on new methods and directions
of research in number theory and aimed at both junior and senior
researchers in the field.

The meeting will focus on several aspects of number theory, as
follows:

1. the theory of sieve methods;

2. the theory of L-functions;

3. the theory of abelian varieties;

4. the theory of automorphic forms;

5. the theory of transcendental numbers.

The specific objectives of the meeting are:

- to introduce junior participants (graduate students and fresh
PhDs) to active research areas and new research techniques in
the eld of number theory;
- to engage junior participants and experienced researchers in
meaningful mentoring relationships, aimed at fostering research
of highest quality;
- to disseminate recent discoveries in the eld of number theory
to a large and diverse audience from different branches of the
field;
- to inspire and stimulate research advances on major open problems
in number theory.

In the five topics described above, the work of Ram Murty has
been substantial and influential. The conference will also aims
at honoring his many contributions to the field of analytic number
theory.
