The Abel Conference is an annual conference series that focuses on the mathematics of the Abel Prize winners. The conference topics will be centered around the important mathematical areas impacted by the work of the Abel Prize recipient, and when appropriate, on the impact of the work on applications. The first conference will be in honor of John Tate, recipient of the 2010 Abel Prize.

The conference will start at 11am on Monday, January 3, 2011, and end at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, January 5, 2011.
