This two-day conference serves as the 1999 edition of the annual
Illinois Number Theory conferences.
One hour talks will be given by K. Alladi, P. Borwein,
A. Pollington, and K.S. Williams.
There will be opportunity for about 20 contributed talks.

This workshop is intended for people in academia and industry with a
basic mathematical background in group theory and number theory, wishing
to learn about the increasingly common applications of arithmetical
geometry to cryptography. The featured speakers are Neal Koblitz, Joe
Silverman, and Nigel Smart, each of whom will give three hour talks.
There will also be time for contributed talks.

The speakers in this workshop include A. Buium (U. of Illinois and U. of
New Mexico), D. Bertrand (U. of Paris VI), Z. Chatzidakis (U. of Paris
VII), L. van den Dries (U. of Illinois), Minyong Kim (U. of Arizona), T.
Scanlon (U. of California at Berkeley), and A. Pillay (U. of
Illinois). For more information contact A. Pillay

A conference for graduate students in number theory is
scheduled for early Spring 2000.
This workshop is a satellite conference to
the Millennial Conference on Number Theory.
It aims to bring
together researchers from the probability and number theory
communities who are interested in problems that lie at the interface
of these two areas. The themes of the workshop include probabilistic
number theory; uniform distribution and discrepancy; probabilistic
methods in additive number theory; probability theory on algebraic and
combinatorial structures; and probabilistic models in number theory.
The workshop is organized by
A.J. Hildebrand (ajh@uiuc.edu) and W. Philipp (wphilipp@uiuc.edu).
The Millennial Conference is a major international
conference on number theory, to be held on the campus of the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It will feature
plenary talks by G. Andrews, J. Bourgain,
K. Ford, R. Graham, A. Granville, D.R. Heath-Brown,
C. Hooley, W.-C. Li, K. Murty, M. Nathanson,
K. Ono, C. Pomerance, B. Poonen, W. Schmidt, C. Skinner, K. Soundararajan,
R. Tijdeman, R.C. Vaughan, and H. Williams.
There will be about 75 invited half-hour talks, and
opportunity for contributed talks.
The proceedings of the conference will be published by A K Peters.
This workshop, organized by Michael Bennett,
is held immediately following the Millennial Conference.

This conference,
organized by Nigel Boston and Chris Skinner,
provides advanced graduate students with
a detailed overview of the recent proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

This conference, organized by Bruce Berndt and Ken Ono,
will feature plenary talks by Scott Ahlgren, George Andrews, Richard
Askey, and Dennis Stanton.

AMS Sectional Meeting at Urbana, March 18 - 21, 1999
**
Preceding the Special Year will be an AMS meeting at the University of
Illinois Campus with a significant number theory component.
Trevor Wooley will give one of the plenary lectures, and
three of the Special Sessions at this meeting will be in areas of number
theory. Altogether, we expect that around 70 talks at this meeting will
be in number theory.
