On 26 and 27 May 2016
the DIAMANT Symposium will be held at Hotel Van der Valk
, Veenendaal, The Netherlands. The venue is at walking distance from railway station Veenendaal-de Klomp.
Invited speakers include: Manjul Bhargava (Princeton University), Damaris Schindler (IAS Princeton), Jens Vygen (University of Bonn), and Jerry Wang (Princeton U).
How to contribute a talk
The Diamant symposium includes a special afternoon (Friday afternoon), featuring Manjul Bhargava and Jerry Wang, about the probability that a random monic polynomial has squarefree discriminant.
PhD students and postdocs are warmly welcomed to submit a contributed talk (30 mins.) to the symposium. In the registration form (see below) there is an option to submit title and abstract. Alternatively, after registration, a title+abstract can be sent to Robin de Jong
at a later date.
A growing list with abstracts can be found here.
The programme starts Thursday at 11:00 AM and can be found here.
Conference fee + accommodation
There is partial DIAMANT support for DIAMANT members. DIAMANT members are full and associate professors listed here
, as well as their research group members.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound 25-5-2016
A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n. Read more in Terence Tao's blog about these developments.
