The Banff International Research Station will host the "Alberta Number Theory Days XIII " workshop in Banff from November 5 to 7, 2021.

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. In recent years there have been significant advances in both analytic and algebraic number theory. 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 well represented among the Albertan number theorists from Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge and other institutions in the province.
The annual Alberta Number Theory Days allow for the exchange of knowledge. New connections are made and old associations are renewed. It is also an ideal forum for young talent in the Alberta number theory landscape to showcase their work and support them to continue in research. We commit to offering a conference where faculty and students from underrepresented categories in mathematics will be invited to showcase their accomplishments and all will feel comfortable to learn and confront ideas without any prejudice.

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).
