General information

Number theory is both one of the core areas of mathematics and a crossroads for many other disciplines. Analysis, diophantine geometry and combinatorics, among other areas, have a long history of interaction with number theory; other subjects, such as group theory and ergodic theory, are also developing often surprising connections with the field.

This will be a two-week school, following the lead of the first AGRA meeting in Santiago, Chile, 2012. The main aim of the series is the development of number theory (in the broadest sense) as an area of research in South America.

For prospective participants

While graduate students and young researchers will be the main intended audience of the school, all interested researchers and students are welcome to participate. Our goal is to fund all participants from South America fully, after a merit-based selection.

Participants from elsewhere (including developed countries) are encouraged to find funding for travel from their own institutions; we will attempt to cover their local costs.

The language of the school will be Spanish.

People of all genders are encouraged to apply. All will be treated equally.

How to apply

The deadline for registration at ICTP was June 7, 2015. There was an extension for registration of local UNSAAC and Cusco participants (June 30, 2015). Students can also contact Oswaldo Velásquez regarding any questions.


Feel free to print (in A2, A3 or A4 format) and distribute these posters.
