Computational Aspects
Diophantine Equations

Salzburg    February 15-19, 2016

Place and time

The conference will take place at the Department of mathematics at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg from February 15-th to February 19-th, 2016.

Scope and aim of the conference

At this conference we want to bring together mathematicians from number theory especially working on Diophantine equations, Diophantine analysis or Diophantine geometry and to exchange new results and techniques in this area. But, also contributions on applications of Diophantine equations to cryptography, numeration systems, etc. are welcome. Therefore we hope that an active interaction between those areas will take place.

In particular, the main topics of this conference are gathered around the computational aspects of Diophantine equations and include:

Salzburg at night

  • Effective Solutions to Diophantine Equations

  • Automatic Solutions to Diophantine Equations

  • Effective results from Diophantine approximation

  • Heights in Diophantine analysis

  • Effective Diophantine Geometry

  • Counting points on varieties

Plenary talks are scheduled for 50 minutes and contributed talks for around 25 minutes.
