Topics and history of the Rencontres Arithmétiques de Caen

The Rencontres Arithmetiques de Caen have been organized for the last  years at the Universiuy oæ Ceen. Their subjects
have focussed upon a particular aspect of number theory that is actively studied by members of the laboratoire Nicolas d'Oresme.
Over the years, the Rencontres have played a significant role in  promoting  mathematical research in the Normandy region.
With an increasing number of international participants, speakers, and an edited series of proceedings, these meetings have
also begun to develop an international reputation.

The  lectures are intended principally for  young researchers (doctoral and postdoctoral level) as well as specialists.

Conference Fee
The conference fee is 50 EUROS (30 Euros, for students).


To register for the conference, use the online registration form. If you want to book accomodations
at the conference hotel, buy a meal pass for the university restaurant or attend the dinner of june 15th,
