Postech Winter School 2012:
The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture

This is the second number theory winter school at Postech. Last year's
winter school on Serre's modularity conjecture featured talks by
experts in the field and attracted a large international audience. The
aim of this winter school is to understand the current state of
knowledge on the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer and the
techniques that have been used to attack it. The winter school will
consist of several lecture series by some of the world's leading
experts on the conjecture, and will also offer problem sessions, as
well as time for interaction between young researchers and senior

The level of the lectures will be geared towards graduate
students and young Postdocs, as well as experts in related areas of
pure mathematics.

Preliminary lectures, covering some prerequisites, will be delivered
on the 6-7 January. The main lectures will be given in the week 9-14
