    This event has been temporarily canceled.

  • Fourteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium, ANTS-XIV

    Jun 30 - Jul 4, 2020
    University of Auckland, New Zealand

    The ANTS meetings, held biannually since 1994, are the premier international forum for the presentation of new research in computational number theory and its applications. Several members of the Simons Collaboration and affiliated scientists will be attending.

    This event will be held virtually.

  • Workshop on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation

    Jun 1 - 5, 2020

    This program will host 6-8 collaborative groups led by invited project leaders, who will propose guiding research questions in consultation with the organizers.

    This event will be held virtually.

  • Logo for the site

    Apr 3, 2020 started as a resource for Boston-area number theorists but has grown rapidly into a catalog of virtual seminars around the world. It was developed by Collaboration research scientists Edgar Costa and David Roe, with the guidance of PIs Andrew Sutherland and Bjorn Poonen, all based at MIT. It relies on database infrastructure created for the current version of the L-functions and Modular Forms Database

  • VaNTAGe on-line seminar

    Mar 24 - May 19, 2020

    VaNTAGe is a virtual seminar on open conjectures in number theory and arithmetic geometry (NT&AG), organized by Rachel Pries and collaboration PI Andrew Sutherland. The purpose of the seminar is to help researchers engage with cutting-edge research in NT&AG without the expense and environmental impact of travel. The next series of lectures is on Galois representations of abelian varieties (and Sato-Tate groups in particular), with several talks by researchers affiliated with the collaboration: Kiran Kedlaya, Alina Bucur, Francesc Fité, and Andrew Sutherland.

  • Winter School on “Nonabelian Chabauty”

    Mar 7 - 11, 2020
    Tuscon, AZ

    The 2020 Arizona Winter School will be held on the topic of “Nonabelian Chabauty.” The speakers will be Jennifer Balakrishnan, Bas Edixhoven, Minhyong Kim, Bjorn Poonen, and David Zureick-Brown.

  • JMM 2020 Special Session

    Jan 15 - 18, 2020
    JMM 2020, Denver, Colorado

    Collaboration PIs Brendan Hassett and Andrew Sutherland, along with Anthony Varilly-Alvardo, are organizing the AMS Special Session on Rational Points on Algebraic Varieties: Theory and Computation during the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Denver, Colorado.

  • Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation Annual Meeting

    Jan 9 - 10, 2020
    Simons Foundation, New York City
