The purpose of the conference is to bring
together researchers from Canada, USA and from other countries to
talk about their research in number theory and to create an environment
in the Niagara region where graduate students can meet number theorists
from different universities. The conference will be on all aspects
of number theory. It will be the 1st international conference in
number theory in the Niagara region.
Outline of the Proposed Program
There will be several invited talks as well
as contributed talks. Most speakers are from Canada and USA, but
there will be others from France and other places overseas.
Contributed Papers are Invited
Please submit the abstract of your proposed contributed paper via

Contributors of accepted papers will be informed no later than August
7, 2011. Each contributed talk will be allotted 20 min.
Transportation from Pearson or Buffalo airports can be arranged
with Niagara Air Bus at http://www.niagaraairbus.com/
Travel Support Application now closed.
