During the academic year 2004-2005 the School of Mathematics hosted a program on the Bloch-Kato conjecture relating Milnor's
K-theory and the etale cohomology. The activities of the program included two or more weekly courses which covered the proof of the Bloch-Kato conjecture as well as two or more workshops on the related topics. The workshops are intended to provide an opportunity to discuss possible further applications of the techniques developed for the Bloch-Kato conjecture. We also had some activity in the general motivic homotopy theory.
