Hang Xue: A quadratic rational point on a non-hyperelliptic genus four Jacobian.

Abstract: We construct a canonical quadratic rational
point on a non-hyperelliptic genus four Jacobian and show that it
generates the Mordell--Weil group of the universal Jacobian. We also
study how the point degenerates on a hyperelliptic Jacobian.

Zhiyu Tian, Fundamental group of Fano varieties.

Abstract: In this talk will explain a close relation
between the fundamental groups of two different objects: the fundamental
group of the smooth locus of a Fano variety and the fundamental group
of the punctured neighborhood of certain type of singularities and
present some finiteness result of both groups. This is based on joint
work with Chenyang Xu (BICMR).

Abstract: In recent years a p-adic version of the
Langlands programme has started to emerge. Although the general
definition of a p-adic automorphic representation is still missing we
have good working definitions of p-adic automorphic forms in many
situation. Often these p-adic forms can be organized into reasonable
geometric objects, so called eigenvarieties. One can ask which aspects
of the classical Langlands programme make sense in the p-adic setting
and it is particularly interesting to ask about Langlands functoriality:
If G and H are two connected reductive groups defined over a number
field together with a classical Langlands transfer from G to H and a
construction of eigenvarieties then is there a p-adic Langlands
transfer? In this talk we will explain the concept of an eigenvarietiy
and construct examples of such p-adic transfers.

Olivier Taibi, Computing dimensions of spaces of automorphic/modular forms for classical groups using the trace formula

Abstract: Let G be a Chevalley group which is symplectic or special orthogonal. I will explain how to explicitly compute the geometric side of Arthur's trace formula for a function on G(AA) which is a stable pseudo-coefficient of discrete series at the real place and the unit of the unramified Hecke algebra at every finite place. Arthur's recent endoscopic classification of the discrete automorphic spectrum of G allows to analyse the spectral side in detail. For example one can deduce dimension formulae for spaces of vector-valued Siegel modular forms in level one. The computer achieves these computations at least up to genus 7.

Olivier Taibi, Arthur's multiplicity formula for automorphic representations of certain inner forms of special orthogonal and symplectic groups.

Abstract: I will explain the formulation and proof of Arthur's multiplicity formula for automorphic representations of certain special orthogonal groups and certain inner forms of symplectic groups G over a number field F. I work under an assumption that substantially simplifies the use of the stabilisation of the trace formula, namely that there exists a non-empty set S of real places of F such that G has discrete series at places in S and is quasi-split at places outside S, and by restricting to automorphic representations of G(AA_F) which have algebraic regular infinitesimal character at all places in S. In particular, I prove the general multiplicity formula for groups G such that F is totally real, G is compact at all real places of F and quasi-split at all finite places of F. Crucially, the formulation of Arthur's multiplicity formula is made possible by Kaletha's recent work on local and global Galois gerbes and their application to the normalisation of Kottwitz-Langlands-Shelstad transfer factors.

Anna Cadoret, specialization of adelic representations of etale fundamental groups.

Abstract: I will discuss the issue of specializing adelic representations of étale fundamental groups, especially those attached to abelian varieties and Shimura varieties. In particular, I will give applications to integral and adelic variants of the Mumford-Tate conjecture for abelian varieties and K3 surfaces. This work is partly joint with Arno Kret and Ben Moonen.

Jonas Bergstrom: Cohomology of a Picard modular surface.

Abstract: In this joint project with Gerard van der Geer we have studied the cohomology of local systems of a Picard modular surface by counting points over small finite fields using that it is a moduli space of tricyclic covers of the projective line.
