The joint conferences on Algebra, Logic and Number Theory (ALANT) unite two simultaneous events: the Czech, Polish and Slovak Conference on Number Theory and the Colloquiumfest. The series originated in 2010, when the first meeting was organized in Bukowina Tatrzanska, and the second ALANT meeting was organized by the Czech side in Ostravice in 2012.
The Czech, Polish and Slovak Conferences on Number Theory have been organized every two years by either the University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, or the University of Silesia in Poland. Nine such conferences have been held so far, and the range of topics covered has gradually expanded beyond what is usually considered number theory, and included topics in quadratic forms, linear algebraic groups, K-theory and algebraic geometry.
The Colloquiumfests have been annual meetings first organized at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada in March 2000, and later also at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, the CUNY Graduate Center in New York, and at Bogazici University in Istanbul. The meetings focus on topics in valuation theory, real algebra, field arithmetic, algebraic geometry and model theory.
With the support received from the Banach Center and the Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science (WCNM), the next ALANT conference will be held at the Mathematical Research and Conference Center in Będlewo, Poland, on June 8-13, 2014. The main theme of the upcoming meeting will focus on real algebra and its interactions with other branches of algebra, logic and number theory, with particular emphasis on quadratic forms and their axiomatic theories, linear algebraic groups and K-theory, valuation theory, as well as algebraic and real algebraic geometry.
The preliminary schedule for the upcoming conference is now available.
