Over the last 27 years, the Annual Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from students to new PhD's to established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement. For accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as 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 mock modular forms, 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.
This year, the 2014 Automorphic Forms Workshop will be held in Moab, Utah at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center. Moab, in southern Utah, is near Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and other scenic landmarks. The Workshop will be organized and hosted by Brigham Young University.
Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk which is typically 20, 30, or 40 minutes in length (mostly your choice).There will be a registration fee of $50 to pay for drinks and snacks.
Register for the conference using the form below. Please register even if you have already emailed the organizers that you would like to attend, so that we can get an accurate count of attendees. If you wish to give a talk, you should submit your title and abstract by March 31, 2014 at the latest.
Reserve a hotel room for the week of May 12-16 2014, so that you will be able to attend the workshop. The organizers have reserved blocks of rooms at several hotels, with information on our travel information page.
Do some awesome mathematics so that you will have something interesting to present.
