This conference, which has a heavy emphasis on student talks, will be an autumn meeting for the Australian number theory community. Building on the success of other conferences (Number Theory Down Under in September, and the Special Sessions at the AustMS in December), Capital Number Theory will bring together number theorists in Australia and attract international experts.
The focus of this conference is the intersection of number theory with computation. Many results are often known ‘for all sufficiently large integers’: we aim, at this conference, to address issues concerning the remaining cases — relatively small integers. This often requires pushing theoretical arguments, and computations, to their limits.
