Thematic Semester — January  June 2014
New Directions in Lie Theory
The goal of the semester is to highlight recent advances in these and related fields and to foster interaction and collaboration between both young and established researchers working in these areas. Winter schools will be aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, while workshops will serve as a venue for the dissemination and discussion of cutting edge research in Lie theory.

Thematic Year — 2014  2015
Number Theory from Arithmetic Statistics to Zeta Elements
Number theory enjoys a privileged position within Mathematics as a fertile source of fundamental questions. Among the seven Millenium problems listed by the Clay Institute, not less than three—the Birch and SwinnertonDyer conjecture, the Hodge conjecture, and the Riemann hypothesis—were handed down by the Queen of Mathematics.
