Objectives

The purpose of the CNTA is to promote research in Number Theory. It organizes the largest number theory conference in North America. Participants come from around the world to learn about the latest developments in number theory. The event encourages both young and senior researchers to interact and to share their expertise. CNTA V took place at Carleton University in 1996. CNTA XIII will be held again at Carleton University with one day at the University of Ottawa.

List of speakers

The conference will feature 10 plenary lectures, the 2014 Ribenboim Prize lecture, and a Public Lecture. Plenary lectures are 45 minutes in length.

Ribenboim Prize in Number Theory (Second announcement)

The Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) solicits nominations for the Eight Ribenboim Prize, for distinguished research in number theory by a mathematician who is Canadian or has connections to Canadian mathematics. This prize is normally awarded every 2--4 years in conjunction with a CNTA meeting. The intention is to award the next prize at the 13th CNTA meeting to be held from June 16--20, 2014 in Ottawa, Ontario.

The prize winner will receive a certificate and medal and will give a plenary talk at the CNTA meeting. Normally the prize winner will have received his or her Ph.D. within the last 12 years. Nominators should submit a letter of nomination, a citation of not more than 250 words, stating why the nominee should receive the award, a curriculum vitae of at most 20 pages, including a list of publications, and the names of 3 supporting references to the committee.

The deadline for a nomination is February 28, 2014.
