This conference is dedicated to our colleagues who have retired since our last meeting or will retire later this year: Professors Bertin Diarra, Alain Escassut, Athanasios Katsaras, Hans Keller, and Herminia Ochsenius who have continuously enriched this series of conferences and the related proceedings with their original research and wise guidance. We wish them all the best of luck and we look forward to their continued contributions in the future.

The 12th International Conference on p-Adic Functional Analysis will take place at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, July 2-6, 2012.




·         Registration: May 15, 2012. To register for the conference, please send me (khodr@physics.umanitoba.ca) an email confirming your participation. If you could provide an abstract (or at least a title of your talk) at this time, it will be greatly appreciated as it will help us prepare the proposal for AMS in order to publish the proceedings in Contemporary Mathematics.

·         Paying the registration fee: May 25, 2012. Please see the next section for instructions on how to pay the registration fee.

·         Reserving your room: May 25, 2012. Please see the Accommodation section below for registration forms.

Each participant is asked to contribute with a lecture of 50-60 minutes length, on recent research, in English. Here is a link to the schedule of talks.


Here is a link to the abstracts of all talks to be presented at the conference.


We plan to have the proceedings of the conference published, most likely again with Contemporary Mathematics of the American Mathematical Society. We hope that every speaker will contribute by writing a research paper. The papers should not have been published before and may not be published elsewhere later on. Every paper will be refereed; please be prepared to submit your paper within two months after the conference so that the refereeing process can start as soon as possible.

Arrival and departure

The conference will start on Monday, July 2 in the morning and will end on Friday, July 6. So participants should plan on arriving on Sunday, July 1 to Winnipeg International Airport. The distance from the airport to campus is about 18 km and it takes about 25 minutes by car; you can either take a taxi (it costs about $35 one way) or let us know in advance your arrival time and we will try to pick you up at the airport.
