A total of 276 participants
have registered for and attended the
conference. An additional 11 number theorists registered for the
conference, but could not attend in
person. The participants represented 30 countries, ranging from the
U.S. and Canada to European countries
and to far-away places such as Fiji, Japan, Taiwan, China, and Australia.
The conference featured 157 talks, of which
19 were one-hour plenary
talks, 73 half-hour invited talks given in 4 parallel sessions, and
65 contributed talks given in 5 parallel sessions. In addition to
these scientific talks, the conference included three 40 minute
talks of historical and reminiscing flavor, and several after dinner
speeches honoring Professor Emeritus Paul Bateman on his 80th birthday.
The Conference Proceedings will be published by A K Peters in a
projected set of two volumes totaling approximately 1000 pages.
In addition to these traditional style proceedings,
A K Peters will publish an economically priced
paperback volume containing selected survey lectures given at the
conference. The Proceedings are scheduled to appear in mid 2001.
All speakers are invited to submit a paper for these proceedings.
Papers should normally be based on (or at least closely connected with)
the talk given at the conference.
In addition to original research papers, we welcome well-written
survey papers. Because of restrictions on the size of the volumes,
shorter papers are preferred, and we may not be able to consider
excessively long papers.
(Plenary speakers do not fall under this restriction.)
Research papers will be refereed using the standards of journals such as
the Journal of Number Theory, Acta Arithmetica, the Journal de Theorie
des Nombres de Bordeaux, and The Ramanujan Journal. We will make every
effort to ensure timely refereeing, and we thank in advance the
referees (many of whom will be selected from among the conference
participants) for their work.
Technical preparation of papers:
If possible, papers should be prepared in LaTeX, with
a font size of 10 points, and textheight and textwidth
set to 42pc and 27pc, respectively. To achieve these dimensions,
proceed as follows:
Papers can be submitted either electronically or as a hard copy.
For hard copy submission, send two copies of the paper to the
member of the Organizing Committee (B.C. Berndt, N. Boston, H.G.
Diamond, A.J. Hildebrand, and W. Philipp, all at the Univ. of Illinois,
Dept. of Mathematics, Urbana, IL 61801) most appropriate for the paper.
For electronic submission, send your tex file(s) to
email@example.com, along with a brief email cover
letter. Papers received electronically will be processed and passed on
to an appropriate editor.
Please do not send submit both an electronic file and a hard copy.
The deadline for submission of manuscripts is September 30, 2000.
The organizers gratefully acknowledge the following organizations
for providing financial support to the conference:
We are particularly grateful to the University of Illinois Mathematics
Department for providing financial, logistical, and staff
support for the conference, and for offering its facilities in
Altgeld Hall for use the conference.
The conference would not have been possible without the help
provided by our own graduate students and by mathematics staff
We are especially grateful to Betsy Gillies, conference coordinator
of the mathematics department, who worked tirelessly behind the
scenes to ensure that the conference would run smoothly.
The Organizing Committee for the Conference consists of
B.C. Berndt, N. Boston, H. Diamond, A.J. Hildebrand, from the University
of Illinois Mathematics Department, and W. Philipp of the Statistics
Department of the University of Illinois.
