The CTNT 2018 Conference (June 1-3, 2018) will feature research talks on arithmetic geometry and number theory. The goal is to bring together experts, postdocs, and students from arithmetic geometry and number theory. We hope this will stimulate mathematical discussion among the conference participants and summer school students. The students attending the summer school preceding the conference will be invited to attend the conference. The talks will give them a sense of contemporary research themes in number theory.

The Biology Physics Building (BPB) where the conference talks will take place.

All talks will be at the Biology Physics Building (BPB 130 and BPB 131), and registration, and the coffee breaks will be outside of BPB 130. A campus map pointing to BPB can be found here (Google labels the building as the “School of Pharmacy”).
