Current Trends in Diophantine Geometry and Transcendence

May 23 - 27, 2016 
101, Mathematics Research Center Building (ori. New Math. Bldg.)

This conference aims at current developments in Diophantine Geometry and Transcendence. Focused on interplay of Diophantine problems with deeper aspects of arithmetic algebraic geometry, we organise a gathering of worlds leading experts to this part of Asia during the last week of May 2016. Recent progress on various important topics will be discussed in this meeting, and both arithmetic over number fields and over function fields be investigated.
