International School on Mathematical Cryptology 2008: Mathematical Foundations of Cryptology
Faculty of Mathematics and Statistics, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya,
Barcelona, Spain, September 2226, 2008
Webpage: http://wwwma4.upc.edu/mak/ismc2008/
As a continuation of a series of events on
Mathematical Cryptology that have taken place in the
Netherlands and in Spain from 2003, the Spanish Thematic Network
on Mathematics for the Information Society is organizing
the 2008 International School on Mathematical Cryptology (ISMC 2008).
The International School consists of four tutorials (from Monday 22 to Thursday 25),
and a oneday Research Seminar on Mathematical Cryptology (on Friday 26).
Important Dates: 
Stipends deadline 
July 23 

Early registration deadline 
July 31 

Short talk submission deadline 
September 8 

ISMC 2008 takes place 
September 2226, 2008 

Research Seminar
The Research Seminar on Mathematical Cryptology consists of
two invited talks:
and some shorter talks by members of the Network.
We encourage PhD students to submit a short abstract (2 or 3 pages) of a cryptologic research work in progress.
Please, send the abstract by email to cpadro (at) ma4.upc.edu, preferably as an attached PDF file, along with your complete affiliation, before September 8, 2008.
Accepted talks will be notified in September 15.
Tutorials
The tutorials are intended for PhD students (and postdocs) in mathematics and
theoretical computer science.
The required background knowledge is the standard
undergraduate curriculum in basic algebra, number theory, probability
theory and/or theoretical computer science. No prior knowledge of
cryptology is required.
Each tutorial consists of 4 hours of instruction, 1 hour of problem solving and
1 hour of discussion of the solutions.
Course notes detailing definitions, theorems and proofs, as well as the
exercises, will be made available at the course.
