Modular forms have been of major significance in various subjects, such as number theory, algebraic geometry and theoretical physics. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers on modular forms and their applications. The workshop will pay specific attention to indefinite theta functions, which play a key role in the modern understanding of Ramanujanís mock theta functions, as well as in conformal field theory, BPS state counting and wall-crossing of moduli invariants. The workshop will include lectures by five leading international experts, who will each deliver two talks. We hope that the lecture program will be of particular interest to young researchers in the field, including Phd students and postdocs.
