Thirteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium ANTS-XIII
University of Wisconsin, Madison
July 16 – 20, 2018

Thirteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium (ANTS-XIII)
July 16 – 20, 2018

As with prior ANTS conferences, there will be a poster session. We anticipate making posters available for viewing over several days of the conference, with a dedicated session one day during an extended coffee break. The American Mathematical Society has generously donated a gift certificate to their bookstore as a prize for the top poster at the conference. The deadline to submit a poster has passed. A list of accepted posters is posted in the Poster session tab.


To have your poster considered for the poster session, fill out the application form here. Priority consideration will be given to all posters submitted by 23:59 EDT on May 18, 2018 (03:59 UTC on May 19, 2018).

The application form will ask you for basic information, and your poster title, abstract (no more than 250 words), and co-authors. Additionally, you will need to email a pdf file (named as LastName_FirstName.pdf) with a one page description of your poster to antsmath2018 [at] gmail [dot] com.

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


  • Priority will be given to all posters submitted by Friday, May 18, 2018 at 23:59 EDT (03:59 UTC on May 19, 2018).
  • Acceptance/rejection notification for posters submitted by that date: Friday May 25, 2018.
  • After that, we will accept applications for consideration, as there is space, until Friday, June 22, 2018 at 23:59 EDT (03:59 UTC on June 23, 2018) with an acceptance/rejection notification up to a week after submission.
  • Poster Information

    Posters cannot exceed 47 inches in either direction. The A0 size, for example, is a great size for your poster! To the US or Canadian citizens reading this, allow me to share with you a YouTube video one of my department colleagues made which explains why the A series of paper is much superior to our standard sizes.

    You will be responsible for printing and transporting your own poster. We will provide poster boards to display your poster.

    If you would rather not travel with your poster, there is a FedEx Office Print Center 0.7 of a mile away from the location of the conference. Grainger Hall also has a printing option. The cost would be about $44 for an A0 poster, or $48 for a 3 ft x 4 ft poster and posters must be submitted by Friday, July 6th. If you would like to explore this option, please contact the local organziers at antsmath2018 [at] gmail [dot] com for more information.

    All poster presenters will be required to register for the conference.
