WMC 2008

Santander, SPAIN, October 23-25

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:

- Primality and integer factorization.
- Secure encryption schemes based on group theory.
- Multivariate polynomial cryptosystems. Gröbner Bases.
- Elliptic and hyperelliptic curve cryptosystems.
- Computational complexity.
- Lattice-based cryptosystems.
- Computational number theory in Cryptology.
- Pseudorandom sequence generators for stream ciphers.
- Public key cryptosystem based on algebraic coding theory.
- Quantum Cryptography.
- Information security with mathematical emphasis.

The workshop will consist of invited lectures, short contributed
talks and posters.
