 This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will focus on the study of automorphic kernel functions. Automorphic kernel functions are used in various versions of trace formula in order to produce:

    The existence of automorphic forms with certain properties
    Functorial transfers in the sense of Langlands
    Special value formulas for L-functions and formulas for periods

Specially designed automorphic kernel functions can be used to produce explicit constructions of certain types of Langlands functorial transfers and to obtain other applications.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts whose research involves automorphic kernel functions so that the interrelation between the approaches described above can be better understood. We hope that this exchange of expertise will also lead to new approaches that will lead to an eventual resolution of the Langlands functoriality conjectures. The workshop will focus on the following three topics:

    Various types of trace formulas and their use in proving existence of certain Langlands functorial transfers;
    Explicit constructions of certain Langlands functorial transfers via integral transformations;
    Generalized Fourier transformations and Poisson summation formulas.

The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.

Space and funding is available for a few more participants. If you would like to participate, please apply by filling out the on-line form no later than July 15, 2015. Applications are open to all, and we especially encourage women, underrepresented minorities, junior mathematicians, and researchers from primarily undergraduate institutions to apply.
