== Registration and financial support ==

Registration is now open for this event. '''NB Registration will close at noon GMT on Friday 9 December'''.

A limited amount of financial support is available for overseas and UK participants. Please let us know if you require support by indicating this on the registration page.

To register (and request financial support if required) please proceed to "Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT" on the Warwick MRC registration page:


Registration is free. All participants must register. We can also provide local accommodation if you are providing your own funding. The cost is in the vicinity of £58 per night. The train from BHX to Coventry is only a couple of quid and the bus to Warwick from the train station is also negligible.

Sage Days (Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT)

Scientific Organisers: John Cremona, William Hart, Marco Streng, Fredrik Johansson.

Administrative Organisers: Hazel Higgens, Annette Anderson

Google group for participants


A Sage Days workshop around the theme of Algorithms in Number Theory and FLINT.

Sage is an Open Source distribution of mathematical software. See http://www.sagemath.org/

FLINT (Fast Library for Number Theory) is a fast Open Source C library for support of computations in Number Theory which is a component of Sage. See http://www.flintlib.org/

See below for further details on the aims of this Sage Days.

Where and when

Warwick University in the UK http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/maths/general/institute

Travel info: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/maths/gethere/advice/

17 - 22nd December 2011 (the formal program will finish on the afternoon of the 21st, but participants may arrive on the 16th and/or depart on the 22nd if they wish). The lecture room will be available from 9am until 10pm daily.

All talks and registration will take place in the Zeeman building on campus. There will be signs on the building directing you to the MRC for registration. All talks will be in MS.03 and the provided meals will be in the maths common room. The accommodation is about 15 minutes walk from the lecture room. For the few people in math houses it is 25 minutes walk.
