WAIFI: workshop on the arithmetic of finite fields

 

call for papers: deadline 27th February 2012

WAIFI 2012. Bochum, Germany. July 16-19, 2012

More at http://waifi.org

This workshop is a forum of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and physicists performing research on finite field arithmetic, interested in communicating the advances in the theory, applications, and implementations of finite fields. The workshop will help to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of finite fields and their hardware/software implementations and technical applications.

Main Workshop Themes

The topics of WAIFI 2012 include but are not limited to:

  • Theory of finite field arithmetic:

    • Bases (canonical, normal, dual, weakly dual, triangular …)
    • Polynomial factorization, irreducible polynomials
    • Primitive elements
    • Prime fields, binary fields, extension fields, composite fields, tower fields …
    • Elliptic and Hyperelliptic curves
  • Hardware/Software implementation of finite field arithmetic:

    • Optimal arithmetic modules
    • Design and implementation of finite field arithmetic processors
    • Design and implementation of arithmetic algorithms
    • Pseudorandom number generators
    • Hardware/Software Co-design
    • IP (Intellectual Property) components
    • Field programmable and reconfigurable systems
  • Applications:

    • Cryptography
    • Communication systems
    • Error correcting codes
    • Quantum computing

Post-Doc position | Quality and security of information systems

Applications are invited for a Post-Doc position in the Quality and Computer Security research Lab of the Université  Libre de Bruxelles.

Université Libre de Bruxelles, Computer Science Department
Post-doc Position in Cloud Security

Applications are invited for a two-years Post-Doc position to work on the analysis and the design of secure protocols for cloud environments.

Candidates are expected to publish papers in well-known security related conferences and journals and should:
– Hold a PhD degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or related fields
– Have solid background on computer security and cryptography
– Have a good publication record
– Demonstrate an excellent level of spoken and written English. Knowledge of French is a plus.

Due to the particular nature of the funding, the position is only available for a non-Belgian citizen in a situation of international mobility, i.e. the candidate should not have spent more than 24 months in Belgium over the last 3 years.

Applications must include:
– a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications
– copies of diplomas
– two (or more) references

Applications can be send by email to Prof. Olivier Markowitch, olivier.markowitch@ulb.ac.be
