In the early 2000s, Gan, Gross, and Prasad formulated a series of conjectures connecting the representation theory of classical groups, periods of automorphic forms, algebraic cycles on Shimura varieties, and special values of L-functions. There has been a lot of progress since on their conjectures and the arithmetic applications. This workshop will explore recent developments as well as possible future directions in the subject.
