OBJECTIVES AND GUIDELINES

Topics include the areas of research influenced by Dick Askey - among them
and others.

See G.Gasper, M.E.H.Ismail, T.Koornwinder, P.Nevai, and D.Stanton, The mathematical contributions of Richard Askey, in q-Series from a Contemporary Perspective , M.E.H. Ismail, D.R. Stanton, eds., Contemporary Mathematics, Vol. 254, Amer. Math. Soc., 2000, pp. 1-18 for a review of Askey's mathematical contributions.

This meeting will have an international character and will include all "generations'' of Askey's mathematical family - from young researchers and graduate students to the world top leaders in the field of special functions and their applications.

About 30 participants are invited to present 30 min talk. In addition, the program will give the participants a possibility to work together on ongoing research projects. Due to the space limitation and limiting funding participation is by the invitation from the organizers only.
