12th Workshop on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC 2008)
28 Σεπτεμβρίου, 2008
ECC 2008 is the 12th in a series of annual workshops dedicated to the study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas.
This year the Workshop was held September 22-24, 2008, Utrecht, The Netherlands and was as proceeded by a summer school on Elliptic and Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptography the week before. I spent 6 days in the Netherlands.
I had the chance to attend the summer school and tthe main Workshop.
As the press release states:
Over the past years the ECC conference series has broadened its scope beyond elliptic curve cryptography and now covers a wide range of areas within modern cryptography. For instance, past ECC conferences included presentations on hyperelliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based cryptography, side-channel attacks, voting protocols, quantum key distribution, AES, hash functions, and implementation issues. At the same time ECC continues to be the premier conference on elliptic curve cryptography. It is hoped that ECC 2008 will further our mission of encouraging and stimulating research on the security and implementation of elliptic curve cryptosystems and related areas, and encouraging collaboration between mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers in the academic, industry and government sectors
