The International Conference on Probability and Number Theory (P&NT 05) has successfully been held at Kanazawa Yomiuri Kaikan, located at the center of the city, close to the Kanazawa Castle Park, from June 20, 2005 to June 24, 2005.
The conference is focused on an intersection of probability theory and number theory, with both fields considered in a wide sense. The conference consists of invited talks and poster sessions.
Kanazawa is located in the central area in Japan, faced to the Japan Sea, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Japan.
This conference is sponsored by the Japan Society for the
Promotion of Science (JSPS).

Advanced Studies in Pure Mathematics (ASPM) has accepted to publish the conference proceedings as a volume in the series. All the registerd participants (including invited speakers and contributors to poster sessions) are invited to submit their articles in this volume.
Original papers with full proofs on the results presented in and/or closely related to the talks are welcome, as well as survey papers of related subjects. All the manuscripts are refereed.
50 free offprints are available for each contributed papers. It is also possible to order additional offprints with charge.
Preparation of Manuscripts. Manuscripts are to be prepared according to the template TeX source file below, which uses a style file aspmproc.sty provided by ASPM:
Update Information. (To those who had a look at the template file before 18 June, 2005.) The previous template file faithfully followed the instructions in the ASPM web page (at that point), and was consequently too restrictive about using standard packages and fonts. The organizers have made inquiry to the ASPM editorial and made sure that the packages in the \usepackage macro in the new template file linked above are actually allowed.

A block reservation has been made at
KKR Hotel Kanazawa, where the registration is scheduled.
The reserved rooms are mainly intended for the invited speakers,
but there will be a limited number of SINGLE rooms,
which will be spared for the participants from abroad.
Consult the organizer
Kohji Matsumoto (Nagoya University) firstname.lastname@example.org
as soon as possible, if you prefer to stay at KKR Hotel Kanazawa.
Many web sites for hotel searches seem to recommend
Kanazawa Excel Hotel Tokyu,
which is located in the central area of Kanazawa,
fairy close to the conference hall.
(Try a GOOGLE search with the keywords
"kanazawa excel hotel tokyu".)
As for an example of web sites for hotel searches,
Rakuten travel (former mytrip.net or Tabi-Mado)
is one of the most popular in Japan.
Webmaster, however, has received information that
the English version of this web sites are poor compared to
Your own favorite web sites or trustable travel agents
may be the place to consult first,
if you are from abroad.
Late June is in the midst of rainy season ("TSUYU") for central Japan, Kanazawa being no exception. This is the time of the year when the sun is highest in the Northern Hemisphere, the warm air from equator is steadily pushing the cool polar air north, and the stationary front, the boundary of the warm air and the cool air happens to be staying around the central Japan, causing a rather long period of rain. Rainy, humid, and warm. Typhoons are occasionally coming near Japan, causing somewhat stronger rains than otherwise, but unlikely to land on central Japan in June.
Averages of past records read around 21 ºC = 70 ºF (average), 25 ºC =77 ºF (average of daily maximum), 17 ºC = 63 ºF (average of daily minimum), humidity 80% (average), and 200 mm = 8 inches rain fall (average of June total), for June in Kanazawa. About half of the week may find rain (but not too strong in intensity).
The webmaster would bring an umbrella, would wear long sleeved shirts (partly because he would expect air conditioners to be fully operating inside the builidings, but might roll up his sleeves much of the time outside), no sweater, and make sure that his shoes do not have holes so that his socks will not get wet!
There are web sites forcasting Kanazawa's weather: Weather.com, Excite weather, Weather underground, Yahoo! weather.
Note added on Jun 24, 2005. The webmaster, faithfully following his own suggestions made above on joining the meeting, experienced about 3 ºC excess in temperature (min, ave, max) and practically no rain. The webmaster as a scientist would like to point out that the BAIU-ZENSEN, the stationary front or the boundary of cold and warm air, happened to be roughly 100 km south of average position this time of year, which caused constant rain in a part of the pacific ocean, instead of in Kanazawa, and that O(102) km is too small to be predicted weeks ahead, considering the complexity (chaotic behaviors) of the Navier-Stokes non-linear partial differential equations which is thought to predict the motion of fluid.
He as a person apologizes for any inconvenience shared with himself, caused by too bold a description of Kanazawa weather above.
Note added on Jun 28, 2005. The next week of the conference, we are having typical rain in central Japan, including Kanazawa. The webmaster now really thinks that it was lucky we had no rain during the conference!
