24th Automorphic Forms Workshop

Workshop Website
March 22-26, 2010, University of Hawaii at Mānoa
Organizers:
Prof Pavel Guerzhoy and Zachary A. Kent
UH Department of Mathematics
Prof Ken Ono
Department of Mathematics, University of Wisconsin at Madison
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.

Project Macimise is designed to support (tuition, technology, travel, per diem) for 15-18 candidates for Masters and Doctoral programs. The project is open to qualified candidates from Palau, FSM, CNMI, Guam, RMI, American Samoa, and Hawaii. It is anticipated that there will be 1-3 candidates from each state with 14-15 of those being Masters candidates and the remaining number Doctoral candidates.

The Macimise Project is a collaborative effort between Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL) and the College of Education, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa (UHM) with PREL as the lead organization.

Beautiful Mathematics for Girls

The Math Department has received a $2500 grant from the Diversity and Equity Initiative at the University of Hawaii to help address issues of under-representation of girls and students of native Hawaiian ancestry in science, engineering, and mathematics. See website. Congratulations to Professors Monique Chyba, Mirjana Jovovic, and Michelle Manes.
