Witt vectors, foliations, and absolute de Rham cohomology


The conference is meant to bring together experts in several areas related (currently or potentially) to the topics named in the title, with the aim of identifying feasible concrete steps to take towards building an absolute de Rham cohomology (a de Rham cohomology theory for arithmetic motives which provides a spectral interpretation of L-functions).
