2018 ICM satellite conference in Number Theory

 Title: Automorphic Forms, Galois Representations and L-functions

 Place: Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro

 Dates: July 23-27, 2018

 Organizing team:
 Fred Diamond (King's College London)
 Aftab Pande (UFRJ, corresponding person)
Amílcar Pacheco (UFRJ)

 Brief description:
Automorphic forms, Galois representations and L-functions, and the interplay among them, have been at the heart of numerous major advances in number theory over the last few decades, from their relevance to long-standing problems such as Fermat's Last Theorem and the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture to their role in the evolution of new research directions such as the the p-adic Langlands program and the theory of perfectoid spaces. The conference will focus on recent developments, with topics that include the Langlands program, special values of L-functions, Shimura varieties and p-adic Hodge theory.
