The following problem which I discussed in 2006 (http://arxiv.org/abs/math/0605328) seems to have been solved by Fabrizio Andreatta,  Adrian Iovita and Minhyong Kim :

Just to add, a student of Iovita, Rogelio Buendia, has shown a similar 'crystalline' criteria for smooth K3 surfaces over any finite extension of Q_p.

+American Mathematical Society Summer Institute in Algebraic Geometry‎ 

Slides from each plenary lecture are available below.

Since Zariski organized a meeting in 1954 at which Serre’s work on coherent sheaves was introduced to American algebraic geometry, there has been a major algebraic geometry meeting every decade. Over the last 50 years we have had Woods Hole (1964), Arcata (1974), Bowdoin (1985), Santa Cruz (1995), and Seattle (2005). The proceedings volumes of these meetings have been extremely influential, summarizing the state of algebraic geometry at the time and pointing to future developments.

Observe that every lecture (including the parallel sessions in the afternoon, but not the contributed talks) will be posted at https://vimeo.com/user7396879/videos, the first ones appearing yesterday. I don't know what will happen to the slides that people used in the afternoons.

The legacy of Bernhard Riemann after one hundred and fifty years

December 27--30, 2015

Tsinghua Sanya International Mathematics Forum

http://msc.tsinghua.edu.cn/sanya/2015/LBR2015/synopsis_organizers.aspx

There are only a few mathematicians in the history whose works and questions are still intensively studied after 150 years by many people in the original form and are continuing to provide inspiration to generations to come. Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) is one such mathematician.

According to Narasimhan in a preface to Riemann's Collected Works, ``Great mathematicians change the way their successors look at certain parts of mathematics. It is rare, however, that a hundred years after a man's work, his ideas and methods are learnt and used by people in the field in essentially the same form in which he left them. Riemann's mathematics has this quality of permanence to an astonishing degree. His work has been analyzed, amplified and generalized in many ways in many fields, but a good part of his mathematical output has withstood the test of time and the search for new perspectives remarkably well. This is not to imply that new perspectives have not been found but simply that in many instances, Riemann's own approach has not been superseded definitely."

Each generation of mathematicians need to read Riemann and to understand and interpret his work. To help the mathematics community to understand better the work of Riemann and its impact, Prof. S.T. Yau and several of us are launching one book project with the title: The legacy of Bernhard Riemann after one hundred and fifty years. It will consist of systematic contributions by leading experts around the world on subjects or topics influenced by Riemann.

The Riemann Hypothesis over Finite Fields: from Weil to the present day --- J.S. Milne  

Abstract

The statement of the Riemann hypothesis makes sense for all global fields, not just the rational numbers. For function fields, it has a natural restatement in terms of the associated curve. Weil's work on the Riemann hypothesis for curves over finite fields led him to state his famous "Weil conjectures", which drove much of the progress in algebraic and arithmetic geometry in the following decades.
In this article, I describe Weil's work and some of the ensuing progress. It is my contribution to the book "The legacy of Bernhard Riemann after one hundred and fifty years", edited by S.T. Yau et al.

Had a nice French dinner at the place. Very good service, even though hardly anyone speaks English. Excellent freshly baked breads.

Nice little restaurant frequented by the locals, serving standard Japanese fare. Had a decent lunch after visiting the Simogamo-jinja (下鴨神社) Shinto shrine, more formally known as the Kamo-mioya-jinja (賀茂御祖神社).

The Mrignayani emporium is supposed to open at 11:00, but we had to wait for some twenty minutes for the employees to turn up (on 24/11/2013). It might be a good idea to call them before going there, to make sure that the shop is open.

Among the starters, we took chicken reshmi kebab and chicken achari kebab. Both would have gained if they had moderated the amount of salt. Bhuna mutton didn't have much mutton in it. Otherwise the ambiance and the service are okay.

On our first day in Khajuraho, we went out for dinner. Our hotel staff had recommended the restaurant Siddharth, but my son noticed this charming little café on our way to that restaurant, so we decided to try it out the next day. At lunch the next day, we found the place to be clean and nice, with reasonably-priced Indian and European dishes. The service was fine; my son liked the place so much that we had lunch there the next day as well. The place is much frequented by backpackers but by very few Indians, which might explain my strange little experience on our last day in Khajuraho. It almost undid the most sublime experience of visiting the temples and being so lucky as to see a tigress with her cub a few metres from us. We had some coffee --- it was nice to find espresso and mocha in Khajuraho --- before the son-et-lumière show at the temples. As soon as the show got over, we rushed back to Raja to make sure we got a table for dinner. My wife and son went up to the terrace while I wanted to go to the toilet first. It was at this point that I was stopped by a shout --- HEY, WHERE ARE YOU GOING ? --- from one of the employees (in Hindi). I was a little taken aback by the question, and by the tone of the voice. I said : What happened ? The way up is over there, he replied. I know it, I said. Then he came up to me, taking a very threatening posture, and snarled "Is it wrong to point it out ?" I couldn't bear the impertinence any longer but kept my cool. I was curious about the reasons for this disgusting behaviour, so I asked him if he was the owner of the place. No, he said, he is a servant. At this point I decided to overlook him completely. If he had been the owner, I might have given him a piece of my mind. We had a reasonable dinner. After paying the bill, I was still curious as to why this man had behaved so execrably with me, so I asked the manager for an explanation. He made a show of lining up all the employees before me and pretended that there was no person who met my description. I decided to ignore the whole incident. But later it occurred to me that the reason for his behaviour might lie in the fact that Indian clientèle is not welcome during this crucial hour when European tourists come out of the son-et-lumière and are looking for a table to have dinner. So if you are European, you shouldn't have any problem of the kind I had. If you are Indian, it is preferable to wait till Raja's preferred clientèle has been served. You might be admitted after they've left. *Update* The owner has written to me that he is "really really very sorry about what happened and will deal with it in such a way as to make sure that something like this never happens again".
