In the year 2000 a
Training Network of the European Community
was started under the name
and Explicit Methods in Arithmetic.
In this project
mathematical research institutions
will have funding to cooperate for four years in order to advance
knowledge in the area of inverse Galois problems, geometric Galois
theory, number theory and differential Galois theory. The network
sponsors postdoc positions, visiting researchers and network meetings.
The Midterm evaluation meeting is organized by the
Leiden team. It will take place at the
Lorentz Center in the city
of Leiden in the Netherlands in the period June 10-14 2002.
This meeting will bring the different nodes of the
network together to discuss the present state of the project.
In lectures of the researchers from the various nodes we will
review the results that we have obtained, and we will outline the
plans for the next few years 2002-2004.
On Friday, the last day of the
conference, we will go through the formal "midterm review" process,
where people from Brussels will evaluate the progress of the network.
This part of the meeting is coordinated by Leila Schneps and
