Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium
University of Sydney
July 7 - July 12, 2002

General Information

Since their inception in Cornell in 1994, the biennial ANTS meetings have become the premier international forums for the presentation of new research in computational number theory. ANTS-V will be held at the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Sydney and will be organised by the MAGMA Computational Algebra Group. ANTS IV was held in 2000 in Leiden, Netherlands.


The refereed proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series (volume #2369) and will be provided to participants at registration. For details see Proceedings.


In order to participate you will need to register. Together with your registration you can also book college accommodation.

A list of persons preregistered so far is available.

We will be able to offer a small amount of travel support to a limited number of PhD students, for details see here.


Financial support for the meeting is provided by the University of Sydney, College of Science and Technology; the Australian Defence Science Technology Organisation; and eSign.

Additional hotels and colleges in the neighbourhood of the university can be found under Travel information.

Echidna Workshop

There will be a post-ANTS Echidna workshop in arithmetic geometry covering computational aspects of curves, abelian varieties, and applications.

GART Workshop

Following Echidna, there will be a conference on Geometric Aspects of Representation Theory at the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
