The central problem of the workshop will be to find explicit branching laws. If the representations are discretely decomposable, then the explicit branching laws are often of a combinatorial nature. Here techniques from algebraic combinatorics will be extremely important and many interesting combinatorial problems should arise.
Another goal is elucidate the connection between the real and the p-adic situation. and to analyze how different methods in the real and p-adic case might lead to (conjecturally) similar phenomena. This pertains in particular to the branching laws with discrete spectrum.
