Let X/k be a smooth variety over a finite field. Motivated by
work of Corlette-Simpson over the complex numbers, we formulate a
conjecture that certain rank 2 local systems on X come from families of
abelian varieties. After an introduction to l/p-adic companions, we explain
how the existence of p-adic companions can be used to approach the
conjecture via a Lefschetz-style theorem for families of abelian varieties
in positive characteristic. This is joint work with A. Pál.
