Qiao He
Local Arithmetic Siegel-Weil Formula at Ramified Prime
In this talk, I will describe a local arithmetic Siegel-Weil formula which relates certain intersection number on U(1,1) Rapoport-Zink space with local density. Via p-adic uniformization, this can be used to establish a global Siegel-Weil formula. The main novelty of this work is that we consider the ramified case. This is a joint work with Yousheng Shi and Tonghai Yang.

Johnny Han
Bounding Numbers Fields up to Discriminant

For those interested in arithmetic statistics, I'll present a quick proof of Schmidt's bound on numbers fields of given degree and bounded discriminant, as well as giving a quick overview of recent improvements on this bound by Ellenberg and Venkatesh.

Brandon Boggess
Dial M_{1,1} for moduli

We'll try to give a brief introduction to moduli problems, with an eye towards moduli of elliptic curves.
