21st Workshop on Elliptic Curve Cryptography

Nijmegen, The Netherlands, November 13–15, 2017


From November 9 to 11 we will run a school on elliptic-curve cryptography. Like the schools preceeding previous ECC workshop, the target audience are Master and Ph.D. students who are planning to attend the ECC workshop and are looking for an introduction to the topics that will be presented and discussed during the workshop.


All lectures of the ECC school will be held in the "Huygensgebouw" of Radboud University. The morning sessions will be held in room HG00.303. The afternoon sessions will be held in room HG00.029.
