Useful Information

Campus Map: we're in building number 67 on that map, the "Mathematical Sciences and Industrial Psychology Building".

Coffee and tea will be available in the mornings and afternoons, but lunch and dinner are not provided. The nearby Neelsie student centre is a reasonable place to find lunch, and there are many restaurants in town.

Wifi: EduRoam is available. Unfortunately, we have no publically available computers in the department, but if you urgently need a computer, just ask Florian.



There will be two types of talks: long talks of 50mins each, and short talks of 25mins each. Neither is more prestigious than the other, these two categories serve only to allow greater flexibility in the programme. Please indicate if you wish to give a talk and whether it will be long or short. Any talks on Number Theory, related areas or applications thereof will be considered.

Accommodation and Airport transfers

Accommodation will be arranged for all international participants. You will also be picked up at the airport, just look out for a sign with your name on it when you arrive at Cape Town International. With this in mind, please make sure that we have your correct arrival and departure dates and flight numbers.


We do have some limited funds to pay the local costs of some people, preferably students or people with no research funds of their own. If you require funding, please mention this in your application. Unfortunately, we will not be able to cover flight tickets.


Registration is free. Please email Florian Breuer if you wish to attend, and indicate whether or not you require funding for your local costs. In due time, please also indicate if you wish to present a talk; the length (25 or 50 minutes), title and abstract of the talk; your arrival and departure dates; and any other special requirements or relevant information.
