School and research conference
Modular Forms and Beyond

May 21 -26, 2018

Euler International Mathematical Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia

Scientific organisers:

Valery Gritsenko (University of Lille/IUF/ NRU HSE)
Nils-Peter Skoruppa (University of Siegen)

Supported by the Simons Foundadion (via PDMI RAS) and the Laboratory of Mirror Symmetry and Modular forms of NRU HSE.

The goal of the school-conference is to bring together PhD students and young researchers using automorphic forms in different research areas. We plan three or four mini-courses in the morning sessions and 30 minutes research talks of young participants in the afternoon.

This school-conference will be the first joint event of the French-German Aachen-Bonn-Cologne-Lille-Siegen automorphic seminar working from 2003, and the new Automorphic seminar of the International laboratory of mirror symmetry and automorphic forms of NRU HSE in Moscow.

The school has some funds to cover local expenses of participants and a rather limited travel grant.
