Events, Meetings, Workshops, and Conferences
Details about recent and upcoming events related to the collaboration can be found below:

CMIHIMR Summer School in Computational Number Theory
Jun 17  28, 2019University of BristolSeveral of the Simons Collaboration team are involved with this summer school in England, including three of the PIs: Jennifer Balakrishnan, Andrew Sutherland, and John Voight. This will be a postgraduate mathematics 2week program jointly funded by the Clay Mathematics Institute and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.

Arithmetic of lowdimensional abelian varieties
Jun 3  7, 2019ICERMIn this workshop, we will explore a number of themes in the arithmetic of abelian varieties of low dimension (typically dimension 2–4), with a focus on computational aspects. Topics will include the study of torsion points, Galois representations, endomorphism rings, SatoTate distributions, MumfordTate groups, complex and padic analytic aspects, Lfunctions, rational points, and so on.
Our goal is for the workshop to bring together researchers working on abelian varieties in a number of facets to establish collaborations, develop algorithms, and stimulate further research.

Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, and Computation
Jan 19, 2019There will be an AMS Special Session on Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, and Computation during the Joint Math Meetings (JMM) being held at in Baltimore, MD. Organizers are Brendan Hassett (Brown University), Drew Sutherland (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and John Voight (Dartmouth College). The program includes talks by collaboration members Costa and Derickx and affiliates Triantafillou and Vonk.

Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation Annual Meeting
Jan 10  11, 2019The first annual meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation will take place at the Simons Foundation in New York City. The meeting will focus on three main themes: the development and organization of software and databases supporting research in number theory and arithmetic geometry; fundamental research in arithmetic geometry inspired by computation and leading to new algorithms; and explorations of Lfunctions, modular forms, and Galois representations with elegant and unusual properties.

MIT Number Theory Seminar
Dec 4, 2018Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyDavid Roe, one of the Simons Collaboration research scientists, will be speaking in
the MIT number theory seminar on “The inverse Galois problem for padic fields”. 
Boston University Number Theory Seminar
Dec 3, 2018Boston UniversityJan Vonk, one of the Simons Collaboration affiliated scientists will be speaking in the Boston University number theory seminar on “Nonabelian Chabauty and rational points on curves”.

Silverberg Birthday Conference
Sep 17  21, 2018UC IrvineSeveral of the Simons Collaboration PI’s (Jennifer Balakrishnan, Noam Elkies, and Andrew Sutherland) are speaking at the fall conference celebrating Alice Silverberg’s 60th birthday. The topic will be on open questions in cryptography and number theory.

Conference on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation
Aug 20  24, 2018MITThe conference on “Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation” is the collaboration’s first formal conference, held at MIT. Review the schedule.

ANTS XIII
Jul 16  20, 2018University of Wisconsin, MadisonMany collaboration members will participate in the thirteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Birational Geometry and Arithmetic
May 10  14, 2018ICERMMany collaboration members will attend this ICERM workshop on birational geometry where the focus will be on the interplay between theoretical developments and explicit constructions, e.g., in the study of Cox rings of Fano varieties, rationality problems, Manin’s conjecture. Abstract

Number field fragments and Fermat’s last theorem
Apr 6, 2018Simons Collaboration Seminar (open to all) by Bjorn Poonen (MIT)
3:304:30pm in MIT room 6120We describe an attempt (unsuccessful so far) to give a new proof of Fermat’s last theorem, involving geometry of numbers and the isotypic components of a Galois number field viewed as a representation of its Galois group.

Rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of a Jacobian
Mar 5, 2018Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) speaks in the Brown University Algebra seminar on algorithms for the rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of the Jacobian of a curve defined over a number field. Abstract
