The Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) was founded in 1987 at the International Number Theory Conference at Laval University (Quebec), for the purpose of enhancing and promoting learning and research in number theory, particularly in Canada. To advance these goals, the CNTA organizes bi-annual conferences that showcase new research in number theory, with the aim of exposing Canadian and international students and researchers to the latest developments in the field. The CNTA meetings are among the largest number theory conferences world-wide.  A list of previous CNTA meetings can be found here.


CNTA-XIV will be held from June 20-24, 2016 at the University of Calgary. The conference will feature:

  • A special session honouring Richard Guy's numerous and outstanding contributions to the field of number theory, in celebration of his 100th birthday.
  • A graduate summer school prior to the conference (June 16-18, 2016), sponsored by the PIMS CRG Explicit Methods in Abelian Varieties.

CNTA-XIV aims to foster diversity, committing to a target of at least 25% female participation.
