One thing I learned from the Laudatio for Peter Scholze is that ~~Serre’s~~ Deligne’s weight monodromy conjecture is, approximately, the p-adic analogue of the Riemann hypothesis part of the Weil conjectures (which ~~Serre~~ Deligne had proved for function fields over finite fields). I somehow missed this whenever I’d read statements that Scholze had proved (cases of) this conjecture. You can read Saito’s technical article on Scholze’s work on this here.

**Update 20 September:** And all the plenary talks are up! See this playlist.

Deligne formulated and proved the function field analog of the weight monodromy conjectures..Serre’s role in WMC is unclear…

@none gah, why did I write that? Complete thinko there. Corrected. Of *course* Deligne proved RH for function fields…
