The Sixth Montreal Toronto Workshop in Number Theory:
Current Developments in Number Theory

Date: November 23-24, Fields Institute, Toronto
Organizers: Eyal Goren (McGill) and Steve Kudla (Toronto)

The goal of this workshop is to give a snapshot of some of the important current developments in number theory in several areas of specialization represented in Montreal and Toronto (and McMaster). In that sense it diverges from our typical format of devoting a meeting for a single topic; also, this time the talks are given by faculty and not by students. Our hope is that the program will increase the synergy between various groups in Montreal and Toronto.
