              Extensions of Hilbert's Tenth Problem

                   March 21 to March 25, 2005

   American Institute of Mathematics Research Conference Center

                      Palo Alto, California



This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to extensions
of Hilbert's Tenth Problem and related questions in Number Theory
and Geometry. The main topics for the workshop are

1. HTP over rings and fields of algebraic numbers (in particular HTP
    over rational numbers, Mazur's Conjectures, elliptic curve methods)

2. HTP over functions fields of arbitrary characteristic, elementary
    equivalence versus isomorphism problem for function fields.

3. HTP for rings and fields of meromorphic functions
   (both complex and p-adic)

The workshop is organized by
Bjorn Poonen, Alexandra Shlapentokh, Xavier Vidaux, and Karim Zahidi.

For more details please see the workshop announcement page:

Space and funding is available for a few more participants.

policies concerning participation and financial support
for participants.

AIM Research Conference Center (ARCC):

The AIM Research Conference Center (ARCC) hosts focused
workshops in all areas of the mathematical sciences. ARCC
focused workshops are distinguished by their emphasis on
a specific mathematical goal, such as making progress on a
significant unsolved problem, understanding the proof of an
important new result, or investigating the convergence between
two distinct areas of mathematics.
