This conference is direct continuation of the 1st conference in Marseilles, France, 2008, and 2nd conference in Strobl, Austria, 2010. UDT2012 serves as a forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research development, and applications on all topics related to Probabilistic Number Theory. We invite you to attend this event and make your presentation.
To this aim, the following themes are of particular interest but are not exclusive: Distribution of one dimensional and multidimensional sequences. Effective constructions of (t,m,s)-nets and (t,s)-digital sequences. Hybrid sequences. Special sequences and discrepancies. Sequences involving primes and number-theoretic functions. Block sequences. Sum-of-digits sequences. Normal numbers. Abstract van der Corput sequences and Hammersley sequences. Distribution of binary sequences, well-distribution measure and correlation measure of pseudorandomness. Distribution of integer sequences. Theory of densities (asymptotic, logarithmic, uniform, weighted, etc.) Random and pseudo-random number generators. Congruential generators. Explicit inverse pseudorandom generators. Tests for pseudo-randomness. Quasi-Monte Carlo integration in Hilbert space with a kernel. Fourier-Walsh analysis. Theory of distribution functions of sequences. Distribution functions of ratio sequences. Copulas. Uniform distribution preserving mappings. Distribution of integer points in large domains. Dynamics emerging from sequences. Number theoretic ciphers and codes. Combinatorial number theory. Trigonometric sums. Diophantine approximations and diophantine equations. Continued fraction expansions.

Abstracts of presented talks


Papers from the conference.
Papers presented on UDT2012 can be published in the journal Uniform Distribution Theory, vol. 8 (2013), after they are peer reviewed and accepted. Papers should be addressed to Manfred Kuhleitner (manfred.kuehleitner@boku.ac.at). The deadline for submission is December 31, 2012. Submission is open not only to the speakers having presented a talk at this conference, but also to any researcher interested to submit a paper in this volume.

Registration fee.
Registration fee is 250 EUR, 130 EUR for accompanying persons. The registration fee covers the costs of the conference, including the proceedings of the conference. Please pay by wire transfer, and please do not forget to pay the transfer fee as well. More precisely below.

Board and lodging.
We have booked the whole capacity of the castle. For the late registration participants (after exhausting of the castle capacity) we booked also some rooms in the hotel Solmus in Trstin nearby Smolenice (price for the room is 35 EUR per day).
The rooms will be given to participants on the first come first serve basis. Accompanying persons are heartily welcome.
The deadline for booking is June 15, 2012.
Price for the room is 60 EUR, suite 90 EUR (price is for the room, i.e. for example in the case of two persons the price per person is divided by 2).

Smolenice is a village in the west of Slovakia, located about 60 km from the capital city Bratislava in north-east direction. The region is famous for its food and good red wine. Congress Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences is in the Smolenice castle which towers above the village of Smolenice on the eastern footfills of Small Carpatian (Malé Karpaty).

How to get there.
It also possible to fly to Vienna or Bratislava, or to take the train directly to Bratislava. Between Vienna and Bratislava (distance 60 km) there is good coach or train connection. Coach connection is directly from the Vienna airport. Timetable of coaches from Vienna to Bratislava (through Vienna airport at Schwechat): Postbus or Vienna - Bratislava, etc.
The Center can be reached from Bratislava by bus, car or taxi. But taxi is expensive. The timetable of buses from Bratislava to Smolenice is possible to find here.
You can use taxi in Bratislava. All official cabs in Bratislava have a yellow light on the roof with a sign TAXI. There are two types of cabs in Bratislava. The first comprises cabs organized in taxi companies; the others are independent cab drivers. The former ones have a fixed price per km, the price varies with individual companies, most of them from 1 to 2 EUR per km. Price upon telephone call is half from the case to take taxi on the street. Each of these cabs has a 5-digit phone number on its door, the first two digits being 16. The independent cab drivers do not have any phone number on the door of their cars and they are allowed to charge customers any amount per km and might charge much higher fare than organized cabs.
