Geometrization of the local Langlands program
Key note speaker: Jared Weinstein (Boston University)
Supported by the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, Montréal.

McGill University, Monday, May 6 - Friday, May 10, 2019
Organizers: Eyal Goren and Henri Darmon (McGill)

Short description: The Langlands program links automorphic forms and Galois representations (of a local or global field).  In contrast, the geometric Langlands program takes a curve X over the complex numbers, and links the moduli space of vector bundles on X to local systems on X. There is a tidy analogy between the two programs, but generally, researchers in the two programs do not interact.  
    A beautiful program initiated by Fargues reveals the unity of the two programs over the field of p-adic numbers.  In this program, the role of X is played by the Fargues-Fontaine curve.  The goal of this meeting is to master the tools required to understand Fargues' suite of conjectures.

Location of the conference:
All lectures and coffee breaks take place in Burnside Hall, McGill university. The official address of the building is 805 Sherbrooke street West. In practice, get to the intersection of the streets "Sherbrooke" and "McGill college" and stand facing the campus. Burnside hall will be at 2 o'clock. It is a tall ugly concrete building.

Lectures will take place in room 1104. Take the elevators to the 11th floor and as you exit turn left and then right to find the door to the room. There is study space and small conference rooms adjacent to the lecture room that you may use when you wish.

Coffee breaks are in the afternoon after the talk and will be offered in the lounge on the 10th floor. The lounge is "behind" the elevators.

Restaurant recommendations: some possible places for lunch

Hotel recommendations:
The conference is held at McGill, which is right in the center of downtown (corner of Sherbrooke street and McGill College street). Basically any hotel in the vicinity will do. We often use Hotel Ambrose (basic, more on budget hotel), Hotel Meridien Versailles, Residence Inn by Marriott on Peel street, and Appartements Trylon (studio apartments). But, honestly, an AIRBNB might be the best option and even more affordable if shared.
