## Winter School in Galois Theory – Luxembourg

Hello all,
We are happy to announce a
Winter School on Galois Theory
to be held in Luxembourg in February 2012.

The goal of the winter school is to present state-of-the-art methods in
Galois theory to graduate students and postdocs. We will focus on Galois
representations, in particular on Serre's modularity conjecture, and on
several of the patching techniques and their various applications. Prior
to the school, there will be three preparatory days on background material.

Preparatory days, 15 - 17 February 2012

* Profinite Groups - Luis Ribes
* Field Theory - Wulf-Dieter Geyer
* Modular Forms - Johan Bosman

Winter School, 20 - 24 February 2012

* Galois Representations - Gebhard BÃ¶ckle
* Serre's Modularity Conjecture - Michael Schein
* Patching in Galois Theory - Moshe Jarden
* Patching in Algebra - David Harbater
