Workshop "Alpbach 2018: Galois Representations and Heights"

This workshop is organized by J. Ayoub, C. Fuchs, R. Pink and G. Wüstholz. The workshop takes place from July 1 - July 6, 2018 at the Böglerhof in Alpbach/Tyrol, Austria.

This, the 12th in a series of Workshops in Alpbach, will feature minicourses given by world class researchers and invited talks by younger researchers, covering topics in arithmetic geometry related to Galois representations and heights. The emphasis includes not only deep theoretical developments, but also applications of a more concrete/computational nature. Minicourses presenting a broad overview of these topics, delivered by top international experts, will be complemented by invited talks highlighting recent progress.
