The Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) was founded in 1987 at the International Number Theory Conference at Laval University. The purpose of the CNTA is to enhance and promote learning and research in Number Theory, particularly in Canada where we already have a great deal of strength in this area. To advance these goals the CNTA has already organized five major international conferences, which have succeeded in exposing many Canadian students, faculty and researchers to the latest ideas in number theory worldwide, and provided further opportunities for Canada's best and brightest to exhibit their talents and ideas to a global audience. The previous meetings have been held in Banff (1988), at the University of British Columbia (1989), Queen's University (1991), Dalhousie University (1994), and Carleton University (1996). All of these conferences have been acclaimed by the international number theory community for the high quality of the scientific program, as evidenced by the excellence of the speakers and the diversity of topics presented. During the most recent meeting of the CNTA it was decided to hold the next meeting in 1999 in Winnipeg; this is in keeping with the objectives of the CNTA in that the conferences have been and will be held in different regions of the country.
