SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

October  2, 2014

June 27-29, 2011
CONFERENCE IN NUMBER THEORY
to be held at
Carleton University, Ottawa

Organizers:
Saban Alaca (Carleton University),
Abdellah Sebbar (University of Ottawa)
Hugh C. Williams (Carleton University and University of Calgary)
Kenneth S. Williams (Carleton University)



OVERVIEW

The main focus of the conference is to learn of the latest developments in the area. The goal of the conference is to bring together top researchers in number theory from Canada and abroad in order to foster collaboration and to expose students to important problems in this growing field. We expect that this conference will establish and strengthen research ties among researchers in number theory.

FORMAT

The tentative program is to have 12 speakers each give a one-hour lecture. The lectures will be of a survey nature offering a state-of-the art view of important topics in the field and related areas of mathematics with applications to cryptography. The emphasis will be placed on highlighting the main techniques in a given area as well as outlining some of the important open problems in the area. Each afternoon discussion period on these open problems and/or contributed papers session will take place. The aim is to expose and engage graduate students and established researchers in active research to try to solve some of the proposed open problems.
