This book contains papers presented at the fifth Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) conference held at Carleton University (Ottawa, ON). The invited speakers focused on arithmetic algebraic geometry and elliptic curves, diophantine problems, analytic number theory, and algebraic and computational number theory. The contributed talks represented a wide variety of areas in number theory. David Boyd gave an hour-long talk on ''Mahler's Measure and Elliptic Curves''. This lecture was open to the public and attracted a large audience from outside the conference.
