NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON CRYPTOGRAPHY (NWC-2015)
(Sponsored by NBHM*, DST*, LNMIIT)
at
THE LNM INSTITUTE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, JAIPUR

December 14-20, 2015


The Department of Mathematics, LNM Institute of Information Technology, Jaipur is organizing a National Workshop on Cryptography during December 14-20, 2015. The workshop are likely to be sponsored by NBHM/DST/LNMIIT.

AIM:

The main aim of this workshop is to systematically expose basic understanding of Cryptology, Network Security and other information security related issues and applications to the students and Researchers. The selected participants will have common research interest but with diversified backgrounds and knowledge, thereby bringing in a wider range of expertise. The workshop consists of

  • elementary and survey talks on cryptology;
  • research talks on recent advances;
  • open discussions on possible collaborations and future directions.

We believe that an intense 7 day workshop in an invigorating environment of the LNMIIT Jaipur will provide wonderful opportunities for communication and further collaborations among participants, as well as transitions of new ideas between sub-fields and into applications. The prime objective of the workshop is to introduce the basic concepts of the theory and applications of cryptography and explore the importance, difficulties and challenges of this innovative research field to PG students, research students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers. We expect the workshop to provide an inspiring and productive forum: to get acquainted with the most recent developments in the area of cryptography, to stimulate and exchange new ideas from different disciplines, and to formulate new challenging problems that will have impact on diverse fields of applications.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

PG students, Research Scholars, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Young Faculty Members and Researchers as well as industry persons who have interest in getting exposure of Information Security topics and underlying mathematics.
