Conference announcement: Reductive groups and automorphic forms

On 14-18 May 2018 the Institute will host the conference “Reductive groups and automorphic forms”.

The conference is dedicated to the French school of automorphic forms and to the mathematicians who have contributed to its vitality over many decades. The organisers find it especially appropriate to dedicate the conference to the memory of Roger Godement, who passed away on July 21, 2016, and whose early and consistent commitment was of such importance in establishing Paris as a major international center in the Langlands program and in the theory of automorphic forms more broadly understood.

This event marks the closing of the European Research Council project “Arithmetic of automorphic motives,” (AAMOT), whose primary purpose has been to build on recent progress in the Langlands program to study the arithmetic properties of automorphic motives constructed in the cohomology of Shimura varieties.
