The Banff International Research Station will host the " Proposal to BIRS for Alberta Number Theory Days (ANTD IX)" workshop in Banff from March 17, 2017 to March 19, 2017.

Number theory is a broad and central area of research with many connections and applications to other areas of mathematics and science. It is also an extremely active and diverse area of research. The subject may be divided into several subdisciplines that range from pure mathematics, to more applied areas such as computational number theory and mathematical physics. Some of the pure mathematics subdisciplines are algebraic number theory, arithmetic geometry, analytic number theory, automorphic forms and representation theory. All of these fields are represented among the Albertan number theorists from Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge.

The annual Alberta Number Theory Days provide a unique venue for these researchers, their students, and their visitors for face to face discussion of ideas and for facilitating collaborations. New connections are made and old associations are renewed. The workshop also allows for the exchange of knowledge, which will improve the progress of current projects.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
