Subject: ECC 2005 announcement

Organization: DTU


Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen

September 19, 20 & 21, 2005

First Announcement                March 5, 2005

ECC 2005 is the ninth in a series of annual workshops dedicated to the
study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas. Over the past
years the ECC conference series has broadened its scope beyond
curve-based cryptography and now covers a wide range of areas within
modern cryptography. For instance, past ECC conferences included
presentations on hyperelliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based
cryptography, quantum key distribution, AES, implementation issues,
and deployments (e.g., cryptography for travel documents).

At the same time ECC continues to be the premier conference on
elliptic curve cryptography. It is hoped that ECC 2005 will further
our mission of encouraging and stimulating research on the security
and implementation of elliptic curve cryptosystems and related areas,
and encouraging collaboration between mathematicians, computer
scientists and engineers in the academic, industry and government

As with past ECC conferences, there will be about 15 invited lectures
(and no contributed talks) delivered by internationally leading
experts. There will be both state-of-the-art survey lectures as well
as lectures on latest research developments.

Summer School:
After receiving so much positive feedback we decided to also have a
summer school on ECC the week before, i.e. September Our
school will be aimed at PhD students with some background on
cryptography and mathematics and at Post-Docs in neighboring fields.
The speakers are not yet fixed - more details are to follow in the
second announcement.

The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is situated in Kongens
Lyngby, in a suburb of Copenhagen, the Capital of Denmark. There are
local trains commuting between Copenhagen main station and Lyngby and
the ride takes 20 minutes. There are international trains including
night trains to Copenhagen and Copenhagen's airport is served by all
major airlines. Some cheap flight companies also serve Malmö which is
well connected to Copenhagen by train. To find out in more detail how
to get there, check Transportation to DTU.

Accommodations: A list of hotels will be posted before the conference.

The second announcement will be made in mid-April and will include
registration and local (i.e., accommodation and transportation)
information, and an updated list of confirmed speakers.
