Workshop - WCC 2019: The Eleventh International Workshop on Coding and Cryptography

Conference Themes

This is the eleventh in the series of biannual workshops Coding and Cryptography. It is organized by Université de Rennes 1, IRMAR, CNRS and IRISA and will be held in Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer, France. Our aim is to bring together researchers in all aspects of coding theory, cryptography and related areas, theoretical or applied.

Invited speakers:

  • Alain Couvreur (Inria Saclay, France)
    Cryptanalysis techniques in cryptography based on algebraic codes.
  • Venkatesan Guruswami (Carnegie Mellon University, USA)
    Sub-packetization of Minimum Storage Regenerating codes: A lower bound and a work-around.
  • Gohar Kyureghyan (Rostock University, Germany)
    Irreducible compositions of polynomials.

Submissions

Selection for conference presentation will be made on the basis of an extended abstract. Those wishing to contribute a talk are invited to submit a 6-10 page extended abstract, before December 15, 11:59 AM UTC, 2018. Extended abstracts of accepted presentations will be collected, and made available online during the conference and for future reference. More details of the submission procedure can be found in the submission section.

Full papers

After the conference, authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper for the proceedings to appear as a special issue of an international journal. Contributions will be thoroughly refereed.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Coding theory: error-correcting codes, decoding algorithms, related combinatorial problems;
Algorithmic aspects of cryptology: symmetric cryptology, public-key cryptography, cryptanalysis;
Discrete mathematics and algorithmic tools related to these two areas, such as: Boolean functions, sequences, finite fields, related algebraic systems.
