The result of the evolution of the technology and the science is that today we are witnesses of an explosive growth in the applications of mathematics in cryptology. There is growing interest among mathematicians and cryptographers in cryptosystems based on algebraic problems and in related cryptanalysis.
The Workshop on Mathematical Cryptology (WMC 2008) is the second of a series of meetings where the main purpose is to learn and discuss recent developments and emerging open problems derived from Cryptology and having mathematical interest.
Topics for WMC 2008 include, but are not limited to:
The workshop will consist of invited lectures, short contributed talks and posters.
