List of Participants
Preliminary schedule of talks

WHERE: American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), Palo Alto, CA

ARRIVAL DATE: Saturday, 24 March 2001
DEPARTURE DATE: Thursday, 29 March 2001

ORGANIZER: Brian Conrey (

DESCRIPTION: Over the last 14 years, the Annual Workshop has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from new PhD's to well established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement; for accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as a forum for exchanging ideas. The atmosphere is always friendly, never confrontational. Topics include, among others, classical theory of automorphic forms, Siegel modular forms and integral quadratic forms.

GENERAL INFORMATION: As usual, there is a $25 registration fee. This money will be used to buy snacks, like fresh bagels, fruit, fresh juice, coffee and tea (and half&half) at breakfast time, as well as lighter snacks, coffee and tea throughout the day. In addition, your registration fee pays for your own conference coffee mug (out of which you must drink the available liquids), and for the conference party.

Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk (typically, 20, 40 or 60 minutes in length -- your choice).

In March, the weather in Palo Alto is usually pretty good, but you can expect some rain.

TRANSPORTATION: Palo Alto is located equidistant from San Jose International Airport (SJC) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). AIM is about 4 blocks away from the California Ave stop on Cal Train. Both airports have free shuttles to and from Cal Train Stations (more details).

ACCOMODATIONS: You need to make your own hotel reservation. I recommend Hotel California, but they have a very limited number of spots. (List of hotels near to AIM with approximate prices.)

FUNDING: There may be some funding available. If you would like to apply for funding, please send me the following information by 10 January, 2001: Your name, institution, position, airfare.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW: If you think you will be attending this workshop, you should send e-mail to Brian Conrey, at to say that you expect to attend. You are encouraged to say whether you will be speaking, and if so, for how long.
