<x-flowed>THE 6TH WORKSHOP ON ELLIPTIC CURVE CRYPTOGRAPHY (ECC 2002)
University of Essen, Essen, Germany
September 23, 24 & 25 2002
SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT May 13, 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.

Essen is situated approximately 30 km from Duesseldorf International
Airport and about 250 km from Frankfurt Airport.
Participants should plan to arrive on September 22 to be able to
attend the lectures on Monday morning.
Duesseldorf Airport to Essen Hauptbahnhof (main station):
There are two suburban trains (S-Bahn) from the airport to Essen.
The S1 goes directly to Essen Hauptbahnhof (main station), but not
very often (once an hour, direction "Dortmund Hauptbahnhof", get off at
"Essen Hauptbahnhof"). The other train is the S7, direction "Solingen
Ohligs". At the station named "Unterrath" (2 minutes later) you should
change to S1 (direction "Dortmund Hauptbahnhof") which will leave
immediately and take you to "Essen Hauptbahnhof". The S7 goes twice an
hour during the week and once an hour at weekends. The price for
either of these trains is about Euro 7 and the journey time is
around 45 minutes. Tickets must be purchased before boarding the
train and they must be validated (i.e., time stamped) which can be
done in the station or immediately upon boarding the train.
Note that there is an airport in Monchengladbach which is also
called "Duesseldorf airport" and which is served by a few smaller
airlines within Europe. One can also get to Essen from this airport
by using the S-bahn, but the journey time is longer (about 2 hours).
Frankfurt Airport to Essen Hauptbahnhof (main station):
There is a train (InterCity) which goes directly from Frankfurt/Main
Airport to "Essen Hauptbahnhof". There is one train an hour. the
journey takes approximately 3 hours and costs around Euro 60.
An exact timetable for these (and other) trains can be found
Tickets may be purchased at the station or on the train.
Another possibility is to take suburban train (S-Bahn) S8 to Mainz
and then change to an Essen train. For special trains (e.g. Inter-City)
it is necessary to pay a supplement.
Essen Hauptbahnhof (main station) to the University of Essen:
To walk from Essen Hauptbahnhof to the University of Essen takes
around 20-25 minutes. It is also possible to take the
underground trains U11 and U17 direction "Altenessen"
and get off at the "Universitaet Essen" stop. On the underground
it is necessary to buy a ticket in advance and validate (time stamp)
it either before entering the platform or immediately upon boarding
Maps of the region, city and university can be found at:
There is a limited block of rooms set aside on a first-come first-serve
basis at five mid-range hotels in Essen: "Korn", "Atelier", "Europa",
"Lindenhof" and "REMA". All these hotels are close to both the Essen
main station and the University of Essen and can easily be reached by
public transport. Breakfast is included. We ask you to make your hotel
reservations with us.
In all five hotels, the price is Euro 64 for a single room and Euro 84
for a double room. You can also book single rooms with a large bed
("grand lit"), the price for these rooms is Euro 72 per night. If you
prefer such a room, please indicate on the registration form. If all the
single rooms for Euro 64 are booked, we will automatically reserve a
single room with "grand lit" for Euro 72 for you.
The addresses of the hotels and their exact location will be given in
the next announcement.
