The work (currently being refereed) of Shinichi Mochizuki on inter-universal Teichmuller theory (arithmetic deformation theory) and its application to famous conjectures in diophantine geometry became publicly available in August 2012. This theory, developed over 20 years, introduces a vast collection of novel ideas, methods and objects. Aspects of the theory extend arithmetic geometry to a non-scheme-theoretic setting and, more generally, have the potential to open new fundamental areas of mathematics. This workshop aims to present and analyse key principles, concepts, objects and proofs of the theory of Mochizuki and study its relations with existing theories in different areas, to help to increase the number of experts in the theory of Mochizuki and stimulate its further applications.
Speakers: Oren Ben-Bassat (Haifa), Weronika Czerniawska (Nottingham), Yuichiro Hoshi (RIMS Kyoto), Ariyan Javanpeykar (Mainz), Kiran Kedlaya (UC San Diego), Robert Kucharczyk (Bonn), Lars Kühne (Bonn), Ulf Kühn (Hamburg), Emmanuel Lepage (Paris 6-7), Chung Pang Mok (Purdue), Jakob Stix (Frankfurt), Tamas Szamuely (ARIM Budapest), Fucheng Tan (Jiao Tong), Go Yamashita (RIMS Kyoto), Shou-Wu Zhang (Princeton)
The following may be useful in preparation for the workshop.
Papers by Shinichi Mochizuki (available as pdfs here). In the section of this list on IUT Theory, paper  has been published. The other papers in this section have not yet been refereed.
Shinichi Mochizuki will answer questions during two three-hour skype sessions during the workshop. He also responds directly to emailed questions.
Registration is now closed.
The workshop is taking place at the same time as undergraduate admissions interviews at the University of Oxford, so there will be pressure on hotel accommodation and it is unlikely that college rooms will be available. Intending participants should therefore arrange their accommodation in good time. CMI can give advice on local hotels.
