Here are some references which may be relevant for this year's seminar:

(1) "Travaux de Shimura" by Deligne

(2) "Introduction to Shimura varieties" by Milne

(3) Handout on Shimura Data from Brian Conrad's course on modular curves

The speaking slots are tentative, not set in stone: please do contact Brian, Samit or Akshay and express your desire to speak. The tentative schedule for the seminar can be found below after the notes for past talks.
