Subject: 1st announcement for ECC 2002


University of Essen, Essen, Waterloo

September 23, 24 & 25 2002

First Announcement		April 5, 2002

ECC 2002 is the sixth in a series of annual workshops dedicated to the
study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas. The main themes
of ECC 2002 will be:
   - The discrete logarithm and elliptic curve discrete logarithm problems.
   - Efficient parameter generation and point counting.
   - Provably secure cryptographic protocols for encryption, signatures
     and key agreement.
   - Efficient software and hardware implementation of elliptic curve
   - Deployment of elliptic curve cryptography.

It is hoped that the meeting will continue to encourage and stimulate
further research on the security and implementation of elliptic curve
cryptosystems and related areas, and encourage collaboration between
mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers in the academic,
industry and government sectors.

There will be approximately 15 invited lectures (and no contributed
talks), with the remaining time used for informal discussions. There
will be both survey lectures as well as lectures on latest research
