The northernmost crypto workshop ever organised, Arctic Crypt 2016, took place in the period of July 17-22 in spectacular arctic surroundings under the midnight sun in Longyearbyen, Svalbard at 78° north.
The program was constructed around a series of 10-12 invited tutorial talks on any cryptographic topic including, but not limited to:
- Foundational theory
- The design, proposal, and analysis of cryptographic primitives
- Crypto protocols, side-channel attacks, and other aspects of implementation
- Information theoretic approaches to digital security
- Recent trends in cryptography.
COINS supported 7 students to attend the Arctic Crypt 2016 in Longyearbyen, Svalbard. Here are their travel reports:
