May 19 -- May 23, 2008, at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

A schedule for the conference and a pdf version of schedule.


Administrative information

Supported participants

Supported participants should pick up a package of forms from the front of the room, fill in the forms, and return them to Sylvia Mejia (room 911). She is available in the morning break (10:30 -- 11), during the lunch break from 12--1, and again during the afternoon break 3--3:30.
  1. Please have your forms filled out before you see Sylvia.
  2. It is particularly important for visa holders to go and see Sylvia since she needs to make copies of your visa and passport documents.

Computing

A password for wireless access will be announced at the first lecture (it change s on Sunday night, so was not available at the time of this printing).

Other

The library is on the 12th floor of the Courant Institute. There are plenty of nice restaurants, coffeeshops, etc. within walking distance.Please ask any local for recommendations!

This conference will focus on aspects of analytic number theory related to Lie groups, especially in higher rank, as well as the analytic theory of automorphic forms. This includes:
There will be two instructional courses, by P. Michel (EPFL Lausanne) and S. Miller (Rutgers). These courses are aimed at graduate students. There will also be several research lectures.


Instructional Courses

P. MICHEL (EPFL Lausanne)
Distribution of CM points, subconvexity, and generalizations.

S. MILLER (Rutgers)
Automorphic distributions and analytic properties of L-functions.

FUNDING

We expect to have funding available for graduate students and young researchers to defray accomodation costs; because of limited funding, we ask that you try as far as possible to obtain support from other sources. especially for travel. Please be sure to fly a U.S. air carrier if you are being reimbursed for travel.

To apply, please send a CV and a short statement of your research interests to ntconf2008@cims.nyu.edu and request an advisor/mentor to send a letter of recommendation to this address.
