Sixteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium (ANTS XVI)
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
July 15–19, 2024

Call for papers

The Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium (ANTS), held biannually since 1994, is an international forum for new research in computational number theory. It is devoted to algorithmic aspects of number theory, including elementary number theory, algebraic number theory, analytic number theory, geometry of numbers, arithmetic algebraic geometry, finite fields, and cryptography.

The organizers of ANTS XVI are excited to issue a call for papers for an associated proceedings volume. We strongly encourage anyone with research related to the topics above to submit a paper. Papers should be at most 20 pages, excluding references, when formatted using the amsart document class with default margins, font size (10pt), and line spacing. However, initial PDF submission may be in any format (e.g. 19 pages of amsart with 12pt font and fullpage is about the same length).

Authors are welcome to post their submissions on preprint servers such as arXiv, HAL, and the cryptology ePrint archive; but papers submitted to ANTS XVI should not be submitted for publication elsewhere.

Following the format of recent ANTS conferences, the conference proceedings will be published after the conference. As with ANTS XV, the proceedings volume for ANTS XVI will be published in a topical collection in Research in Number Theory by Springer. Papers of the highest quality are selected by the program committee, after a rigorous peer-review process. Preliminary versions of the papers are available during the conference, and final versions are submitted after the conference. In addition, any associated code should be placed in a publicly available repository such as GitHub or Zenodo to be available to the reviewers (to help improve the quality, accessibility, re-usability, and reproducibility of the code and data). For each accepted submission, at least one author must present the work at the conference. More information concerning funding will be posted on the website in 2024 as it becomes available.

ANTS aims to foster diversity; we particularly encourage submissions from women and underrepresented minorities who have projects in the general scope of this conference.


The submission deadline for ANTS XVI has passed and the list of papers that will be presented at the conference has been posted.
