# Introductory Workshop: New Geometric Methods in Number Theory and Automorphic Forms

**Month: **August 2014

**Date: **August 18--22

**Name: ** Introductory Workshop: New Geometric Methods in Number Theory and Automorphic Forms

**Location: ** Mathematical Sciences Research Institution, Berkeley, California.

#### Description

The goal of this workshop is to give a practical introduction to some of the main topics and techniques related to the August-December 2014 MSRI program, "New geometric methods in number theory and automorphic forms." The workshop is aimed at graduate students and interested researchers in number theory or related fields. There will be lecture series on periods of automorphic forms, Shimura varieties, and representations of p-adic groups, as well as more advanced topics, including p-adic Hodge theory and the cohomology of arithmetic groups.
