Description of the conference

In the last few years there has been a surge in research activity dedicated towards obtaining further explicit evidence for Stark's Conjecture, and in formulating and investigating natural variants, refinements or generalizations thereof. By bringing together the leading exponents of these different strands of research this conference aims to improve understanding of the links between them. In addition, the conference program will include a series of survey talks aimed at making accessible to as wide an audience as possible the main aspects of recent research into Stark's Conjecture. 

At this time, confirmed main speakers include.
D. Burns (King's College London), H. Darmon (McGill U. ), D. Dummit (U. Vermont), M. Flach (Caltech), C. Greither (Munich), B. H. Gross (Harvard U.), D. Hayes (UMass. Amherst), M. Kurihara (Tokyo Metropolitan U.), C. Popescu (Johns Hopkins U.), K. Rubin (Stanford U.), X. Roblot (U. Lyon), V. Snaith (U. of Southampton), D. Solomon (King's College London), H. Stark (U. C. San Diego).
