TORA is a conference series hosted in rotation by University of North Texas, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Oklahoma. The TORA meetings will bring together the automorphic forms and representation theory community of the South Central region to hear about recent research in automorphic forms and representation theory. Graduate students and junior researchers are particularly encouraged to attend. Funding for TORA is provided by the National Science Foundation and the host universities.
TORA I was held at UNT, and TORA II was held at OSU.
