Industrial Computeralgebra Conference with Focus Cryptography
Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg
Dates: 28.-29.09.2021The conference will be fully remote. The conference link and information about the access code can be found below.
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 artificial intelligence, 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 new cryptographical algorithms deemed secure even in the presence of quantum computers, called Post Quantum Cryptography. These algorithms will require experts with special skills for implementation and deep understanding of dedicated areas in mathematics, algorithms and computing — a rewarding, and quickly evolving field with future prospects for young graduates and postdocs.
Representatives from industry have the opportunity to present their current fields of work and foster contacts to scientists and their students. The talks will cover purely algorithmic questions, computing aspects and context topics, such as the necessity of post quantum cryptography for the realisation of QKD-networks with dynamically authenticated encrypted communication sessions.
We have invited experts of various industrial domains, to outline professional possibilities besides a conventional scientific career to the younger generation and to meet with academics.
