Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium

Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium (ANTS) is an academic conference.

Since their inception in Cornell in 1994, the biennial ANTS meetings have become the premier[citation needed] international forums for the presentation of new research in computational number theory. They are devoted to algorithmic aspects of number theory, including elementary number theory, algebraic number theory, analytic number theory, geometry of numbers, algebraic geometry, finite fields, and cryptography.

Current events

ANTS IX is being held in Nancy, France at LORIA on July 19-23, 2010 [1].

Selfridge Prize

In honour of the many contributions of John Selfridge to mathematics, the Number Theory Foundation has established a prize to be awarded to those individuals who have authored the best paper accepted for presentation at ANTS. The prize, called the Selfridge Prize, will normally be awarded every two years in an even numbered year. The prize winner(s) will receive a cash award and a certificate. The successful paper will be selected by the ANTS Program Committee.

The Selfridge Prize at the ANTS VII meeting was awarded to Werner Bley and Robert Boltje for their paper Computation of locally free class groups. The Prize at ANTS VIII was awarded to Juliana Belding, Reinier Bröker, Andreas Enge and Kristin Lauter for their paper Computing Hilbert Class Polynomials.


The refereed Proceedings of ANTS are published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The Lecture Notes in Computer Science are now also published electronically.
