During the academic year 2004-2005 the School of Mathematics will host a program on the Bloch-Kato conjecture relating Milnor's
K-theory and the etale cohomology. The activities of the program will include two or more weekly courses which should cover the proof of the Bloch-Kato conjecture as well as two or more workshops on the related topics. The workshops are intended to provide an opportunity to discuss possible further applications of the techniques developed for the Bloch-Kato conjecture. We also expect to have some activity in the general motivic homotopy theory.
