Voight speaks in the Number Theory Web Seminar
Jun 16, 2022Collaboration PI John Voight speaks on the topic Counting elliptic curves with level structure in the Number Theory Web Seminar. “We provide an asymptotic answer to questions like: how many elliptic curves of bounded height have a cyclic isogeny of degree N.”

Special session organized by collaboration members
Apr 11  15, 2022ZoomCollaboration members Eran Assaf, Edgar Costa, Brendan Hassett, and David Roe are organizing a lecture series Explicit Methods in Modularity April 1115, 2022. This originated from an AMS special session planned for the Seattle Joint Mathematics Meetings.

Modular curves week at MIT
Mar 21  25, 2022Several members of the collaboration, including PIs Jennifer Balakrishnan and Andrew Sutherland, and research scientists Eran Assaf, Edgar Costa, David LowryDuda, and David Roe, are beginning a push to develop a database of modular curves, their geometric invariants and rational points.

Infrastructure Week: Hilbert Modular Forms at Dartmouth
Feb 21  25, 2022Dartmouth, NHCollaboration PI John Voight is leading a focus week on Hilbert Modular Forms, emphasizing computational techniques and databases.

Simons Collaboration Annual Meeting
Jan 13  14, 2022The 2022 Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation Annual Meeting will focus on the following themes:
 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
 Explorations of Lfunctions, modular forms, and Galois representations with elegant and unusual properties
Talks will present contributions from members of the collaboration and work by leading experts that may inspire future developments. Note: This was abbreviated to a virtual session due to the Omicron surge.

Balakrishnan to give inaugural Moufang lectures
Jul 13  16, 2021Collaboration PI Jennifer Balakrishnan will deliver the inaugural Ruth Moufang Lectures. Balakrishnan will speak on:
