Over the last 23 years, the Annual Automorphic Forms Workshop has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from students, new PhD’s, and established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement. For accomplished researchers, it offers the opportunity to mentor, and it provides 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 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.
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 plan to have similar panel sessions this year as well.
