The goal of this Advanced Study Institute is to provide training and expertise to mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers from NATO and partner countries in the area of arithmetic of hyperelliptic curves in developing and maintaining crypto systems based on hyperelliptic cryptography.
All activities are supported by ISEG.EAP.ASI 984724 NATO grant.
All mathematicians and computer scientists interested in hyperelliptic curves and are residing in NATO countries, NATO partner countries, or Mediterranean dialogue countries are encouraged to apply. We do expect that all applicants to be somewhat familiar with the topics of the conference.
There will be a proceedings volume including lectures and the best papers from other participants. The volume will be titled "Arithmetic of hyperelliptic curves". In addition there will be a special issue of the Albanian J. Math. for papers which do not fall within the area of the arithmetic of the hyperelliptic curves.
