WORKSHOP at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Inspired by the long-standing annual US Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics, this workshop aims to generate and sustain a friendly and supportive atmosphere that provides encouragement to young researchers, mentoring opportunities for more established researchers, as well as a lively forum for exchanging ideas and forming new collaborations. All workshop participants are encouraged to speak on their research. The workshop takes place in the second week of the meeting, which is : 13-17 July 2020. Due to air-conditioning, the talks will take place in the Business Academy building,  School of Economics and Business, University of Sarajevo,  Skenderija 70 . Click here to view the poster.

The last day of the Workshop (July 18) brings an opportunity for participants to discuss their ideas and results during an informal one-day trip. Two trips will be ogranized:
1. Rafting on river Neretva, an informative video can be found on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8gszxl-fSA
or, for the less adventorous participants
Prices of both trips are approximately 50 EUR per person (depending on the size of the group). Participants can sign up for the Saturday excursion during the registration at the conference venue.

About the workshop


The workshop talks will be 20 and 30 minutes in length; researchers at all stages of their careers are encouraged to present their work. Each day will begin with a talk that is, at least in part, a survey of some aspect of automorphic forms.


We invite participants to bring posters on some of their research in automorphic forms that we will display outside the workshop lecture hall in the School of Economics and Business in Sarajevo.


Following the success of “speed-talks” in the Texas-Oklahoma Representations and Automorphic Forms series of conferences, and in the spirit of the BBC Radio 4 show “Just a Minute”, we will have a session of 2-minute talks where the speakers are charged with presenting some mathematics, without hesitation, deviation, or repetition. Such talks provide a lighthearted opportunity to learn about others’ research, and it will be scheduled at the end of a morning or afternoon session, so that discussions can continue following the session. 

Other planned activities:

  • Poster-making session
  • Panel session
  • Socialising event, on Wednesday evening of the workshop
