Workshop on Motives, Galois Representations and Cohomology Around the Langlands Program

Monday, November 6, 2017 - 09:00 to Friday, November 10, 2017 - 12:30

The main theme  will be the relationship between cohomology of arithmetic groups, Galois representations, and motives, which arises out of the Langlands program.  The workshop will emphasize some directions that have seen recent progress, for example, new results and new features in the non-Hermitian case, or constructions of new Euler systems



The workshop is organized by Akshay Venkatesh (IAS/Stanford University), Frank Calegari (University of Chicago).


Invited Speakers:

Patrick Allen, George Boxer, Laurent Clozel, Pierre Colmez, Henri Darmon, Alexander Goncharov, Paul Gunnells, Shekhar Khare, Emmanuel Lecoutourier, Brandon Levin, Mike Lipnowski, David Loeffler, Rachel Ollivier, Vincent Pilloni, Kartik Prasanna, Niccolo' Ronchetti, Yunqing Tang, Preston Wake, Sarah Zerbes
