2020 Paul J. Sally, Jr. Midwest Representation Theory Conference

The 2020 Paul J. Sally, Jr. Midwest Representation Theory Conference will be held October 16 (Friday)–18 (Sunday), 2020.  This virtual conference, which is the 44th Midwest Representation Theory Conference, will focus on recent progress in the theory of representations of groups over local fields as well as connections of this theory to other areas within mathematics, notably number theory and geometry.  The conference will feature a sequence of contributed talks, and we encourage you both to apply to give such a talk and to advertise this opportunity to graduate students and colleagues.  Please see the conference page at http://homepage.divms.uiowa.edu/~mkrishna/2020mrtc/.
