Tuesday, August 11, to Saturday, August 15, 2015 in Providence, RI

Please join us for a celebration of the mathematical career of Joseph H. Silverman. Elliptic curves, diophantine geometry, and arithmetic dynamics in beautiful Providence, RI. We aim to bring together a community of researchers at all stages, in a collaborative, casual atmosphere. There will be a poster session for graduate students, and some exciting special events. The conference will make available resources for mathematicians with family responsibilities.
