    DESCRIPTION OF CNTA:
    The CNTA was founded in 1987 at the International Number Theory conference at Laval University. Approximately every 2 years since then, the universities of one Canadian city organize a week-long celebration of number theory.
    The purpose of the CNTA is to enhance and promote learning and research in Number Theory. To advance these goals the CNTA organizes major international conferences, with the aim of exposing students and researchers to the latest developments in number theory world wide. The previous meetings were held in Banff (1988), Vancouver (1989), Kingston (1991), Halifax (1994), Ottawa (1996), Winnipeg (1999), Montréal (2002), Toronto (2004), Vancouver (2006), Waterloo (2008), and Wolfville (2010).
    These have been high quality conferences which have had wide participation of the international number theory community. It is now one of the largest international meetings in the field, along with the European Journéees Arithmétiques.
    Please see the CNTA site, which tracks much of the history of CNTA, including links to past CNTA Meetings and Conference Proceedings.

    Organizers:
    from University of Lethbridge: Amir Akbary, Habiba Kadiri, Nathan Ng, Soroosh Yazdani.
    from other institutions: Michael Bennett (UBC), Nils Bruin (SFU), Matthew Greenberg (Calgary), Renate Scheidler (Calgary), Vinayak Vatsal (UBC).
