SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES 

September 28, 2016  
The Canadian Number
Theory Association (CNTA) was founded in 1987 at the International Number
Theory Conference at Laval University. The purpose of the CNTA is to enhance
and promote learning and research in Number Theory, particularly in Canada.
To advance these goals the CNTA organizes major international conferences,
with the aim of exposing Canadian students and researchers to the latest
developments in number theory. The previous meetings have been held in
Banff (1988), Vancouver (1989), Kingston (1991), Halifax (1994), Ottawa
(1996), Winnipeg (1999) and Montreal (2002). These have been high quality
conferences which have had wide participation of the international number
theory community.

The Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) has established a prize for distinguished research in number theory to be awarded to a mathematician who is Canadian or has connections to Canadian mathematics. The prize, called the Ribenboim Prize, will normally be awarded every four years in conjunction with a CNTA meeting. The prize winner will receive a certificate and medal and will give a plenary talk at the associated CNTA meeting. Normally the prize winner will have received his or her Ph.D. within the last 12 years. The first prize was awarded at the 1999 CNTA meeting to Professor Andrew Granville, and the second prize was awarded in 2002 to Professor Henri Darmon at the CNTA Meeting.
At this year's meeting, the Ribenboim Prize will be awarded to Professor Michael Bennett of the University of British Columbia.
Online registration is now closed.
Onsite registration will be available at the event in the foyer of
the Earth Sciences Auditorium.
Registration Fees are as follows:
We are expecting funding from the National Science Foundation to provide
a limited amount of support for U.S.based graduate students, postdoctoral
fellows and junior faculty. Applications for assistance should be directed

There will be an associated Conference, in honour of Dale Brownawell, held June 1719, 2004 at the University of Waterloo immediately before CNTA8, which is supported by the Fields Institute.
Blocks of rooms for the conference have been booked at three Toronto hotels for the evenings of June 1926, 2004. All meeting participants should make their own hotel reservations, before May 19, 2004 to have the rooms guaranteed  participants should identify themselves with the group name "Canadian Number Theory Association" .
Information about other local hotels are available through the Fields Institute Housing page and for participants seeking budget accomodation at campus residences see Summer Accommodation page.
