The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Langlands Program: Number Theory and Representation Theory" workshop in Oaxaca, from November 29 to December 04, 2020.

Langlands functoriality conjectures predict a vast generalization of the classical reciprocity laws of Class Field Theory, providing crossroads between Number Theory and Representation Theory. The conjectures are both local and global and pertain a connected reductive group and its Langlands dual group.

We aim to introduce young mathematicians in México and Latin-America to topics of current research in the Langlands Program. We will also promote the participation women and of graduate students from a diverse background in a workshop where experts in the field from across the world will gather to expand upon the frontiers of current research. In addition to research talks, there will be three courses that will also be accessible to mathematicians working in closely related fields.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
