Rational Points on Schiermonnikoog

2–6 July 2018

Welcome to the home page of Rational Points on Schiermonnikoog, a mathematics conference that took place on the island of Schiermonnikoog in the Netherlands, from 2 to 6 July 2018.


You can find photos from the conference here.


This conference will bring together experts and young researchers in the study of rational points on varieties. In particular, it will encourage contact and collaboration between those using different approaches to the topic, including those working in algebraic geometry, analytic number theory, explicit methods and logic.

All funded places at the conference are now taken, but other participants are welcome to arrange their own accommodation and attend the conference. Please email us at the address below if you would like to attend.
