Industrial Computeralgebra Conference with Focus Cryptography

Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg


Summerschool: 27.-28.09.2021
Conference: 29.-30.09.2021

In case of restrictions due to the Corona pandemic we will enable online presentations and discussions.

Conference Topics

The Computeralgebra Expert Group of the Society of Computer Sciences Germany (GI) organises an industrial conference after a break of eleven years. In the face of great challenges to digital security by new technologies such as AI, high performance binary systems and Quantum technologies we decided to focus on cryptography.

Currently the NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technologies, US Department of Commerce) is in a standardization process of the new cryptographical algorithms, called Post-Quantum Cryptography. Those algorithms will require special skills for implementations and therefore we will need experts with deep understanding of dedicated areas in Mathematics, Algorithms and Computing — rewarding, and quickly evolving fields with future prospects for young graduates and postdocs.

Industrial representants have the opportunity to present their current fields of work and foster contacts to scientists and their students. The school will give interested participants insight on topics of and around the new cryptography in order to prepare them for the conference days on the 30.09 and 01.10.2020. Die talks will cover purely algorithmic questions, computing-aspects and context-topics, such as the necessity of Post-Quantum cryptography for the realisation QKD-networks with dynamically authenticated encrypted communication sessions.

We have invited representants of various industrial domains, to outline the expanse of professional possibilities besides a conventional scientific career to the younger generation and interested experts.
