Automorphic Forms and Representation Theory

A Red River conference held at the University of Oklahoma

October 2-3 (Saturday-Sunday), 2010

This conference will feature research talks by both faculty and graduate students in Automorphic Forms and Representation Theory. If you are interested in participating, please send e-mail to one of or or , all at
Kimball Martin (University of Oklahoma)
Ameya Pitale (University of Oklahoma)
Ralf Schmidt (University of Oklahoma)
What is this Red River thing?
  • The Red River, a tributary to the Mississippi, marks the border between Texas and Oklahoma.
  • The annual OU-UT football game, happening that same weekend, is known as the Red River Rivalry.
