Ribenboim Prize in Number Theory
Ribenboim Prize committee: Adrian Iovita (Concordia), Ram Murty (Queen’s), Damien Roy (Ottawa)

Florian Herzig from the University of Toronto has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 Ribenboim Prize of the Canadian Number Theory Association.

The Ribenboim Prize, named in honour of Paulo Ribenboim, is awarded for distinguished research in Number Theory by a mathematician who is Canadian or has close connections to Canadian Mathematics. Previous winners are: Andrew Granville (1999), Henri Darmon (2002), Michael Bennett (2004), Vinayak Vatsal (2006), Adrian Iovita (2008), Valentin Blomer (2010), Dragos Ghioca (2012). The 2014 award will be presented at the CNTA XIII meeting, to be held from 16 to 20 June 2014 at Carleton University.

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.

Conference proceedings

The Fields Institute will publish the CNTA XIII Conference Proceedings, which will be edited by A. Alaca, S. Alaca and K. S. Williams. Submissions to the Proceedings should not have been submitted or published elsewhere, and should be sent electronically (both LaTeX and PDF files) to Professor A. Alaca at aalaca<at> math.carleton.ca no later than October 30, 2014. All submissions will be refereed.

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. Each lecture room is equipped with ample blackboards, a computer and a data project
