Abel Laureate, Robert Langlands, will give his prize lecture at the University of Oslo followed by two Abel Lectures by James Arthur and Edward Frenkel. 

James Arthur is a professor of mathematics at the University of Toronto. In 1970 he received his PhD at Yale University, where his advisor was Robert Langlands. He is considered as one of the few leading mathematicians in the central fields of representation theory and automorphic forms, and an excellent teacher. 

Edward Frenkel is a professor of mathematics at UC Berkeley. He is the author of the bestselling book "Love and Math", and is a well-known lecturer. "Love and Math" is the first account of the Langlands Program for a general audience in a book form. Frenkel has also published joint papers on different aspects of the Langlands Program with both Langlands and Witten.
