West Coast Number Theory (WCNT), a meeting that has also been known variously as the Western Number Theory Conference and the Asilomar Number Theory meeting, is an annual gathering of number theorists first organized by D. H. and Emma Lehmer at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in 1969.[1] In his tribute to D. H. Lehmer, John Brillhart stated that "There is little doubt that one of [Dick and Emma's] most enduring contributions to the world of mathematicians is their founding of the West Coast Number Theory Meeting [an annual event] in 1969".[2] To date, the conference remains an active meeting of young and experienced number theorists alike.
