FRG 2012 Recap

June 19-24, 2012
There has been considerable recent progress in the representation theory of p-adic groups, especially in the study of supercuspidal representations. The workshop aimed to help junior researchers in the area to broaden their understanding, particularly of characters, liftings, and types, in both the standard and symmetric-space settings. The conference that followed presented recent results in these areas.
