Description

In 2019, the organizers created a workshop called Number Theory in the Americas, which brought together junior and senior mathematicians from North, Central, and South America, to work together on research projects. The workshop resulted in at least seven publications, and served as a first collaboration experience for many of the junior researchers. The organizers propose to create a follow-up workshop in order to provide collaboration opportunities for the PhD students and postdocs who were too young to participate the last time. The workshop will be held in Spanish in order to erase the additional obstacle of communicating in English. We will welcome native and non-native speakers alike.

Our workshop is modeled after several other workshops that have been successful at fostering mathematical collaboration. Participants will be divided into small project groups (3-5 participants) containing a mix of junior and senior researchers. Each group will be led by one or two senior mathematicians. Project groups will be assigned based on research area, with care taken to ensure that each group contains researchers from both continents who have not previously worked together. Background reading will be sent to project group members several months in advance so that they are prepared to work on their respective problems together when they arrive in Oaxaca. The bulk of the workshop will be devoted to working in the project groups, but there will be introductory talks on the first day and final reports on the last day. There will also be panel discussions on topics of particular interest to junior researchers. The expectation is not that each project group will write a paper by the end of the week. Rather, it is meant to be an opportunity to exchange ideas and a starting point for potential future collaboration.
