This year the Number Theory Down Under meeting will be at La Trobe University (Bendigo Campus) from 29th September to 2nd October.


Please register for the conference at this link  Registration link.  If you would like to give a talk then send your expression of interest to the conference organiser, Mumtaz Hussain at m.hussain@latrobe.edu.au.

The main aim for the NTDU meetings is not only to promote number theory in Australia but also to bring together domestic and international number theorists to share ideas and to pursue collaborative work. The general focus of the workshop will be on open problems in number theory; any area of number theory is a fair game, as are connections to other fields of mathematics.
