Exponential sums conference

It will probably not come as a surprise to most readers that I like exponential sums, especially over finite fields. I’m therefore very happy to announce a conference on the topic of

Exponential sums over finite fields and applications

that will be held at the Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik of ETH, during the week of November 1 to November 5, 2010. This conference is organized by N. Katz, P. Michel, R. Pink and myself.

The web site


is now up, with a preliminary list of speakers and an unofficial poster


(the official poster will come soon, its design will link the conference thematically with the other two number theory events that have been organized in Zürich this year, the Number Theory Days and the Rational Points conference.)

As indicated on the web site, there will be some support available for other participants, in particular PhD students and young researchers. Anyone interested in coming is invited to write to the contact email address: expsums@math.ethz.ch
