Corresponding entry in b-it IPEC, Aachen Campus, Bonn Computer Science, Bonn Mathematics, Bonn University.

Summer school on Cryptography

29 July - 02 August 2013,
b-it, Bonn, Germany.

This summer school on cryptography offers undergraduate and graduate students and researchers the opportunity to crypt a bit. It provides acquaintance and interaction in an intellectually stimulating and informal atmosphere in pleasant surroundings.

We are pleased to announce that this year's crypt@b-it is organized in cooperation with the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Description

The one-week summer school crypt@b-it 2013 takes place 29 July-02 August 2013 in the B-IT building. It will explore some areas of cryptography:

In addition, there will be tutorials and hands-on exercises on topics somewhat related to the lectures, including an exhibit of an actual Enigma machine. The intended audience are undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdocs and researchers who work in the area or at least have a basic knowledge.

Speakers

Excursion

In the 1960s, many people considered nuclear war a real possibility. The German government built a secret tunnel system as an escape - they might have lived a few weeks longer than the rest of the population. You can see the Chancellor's cot and take a glimpse at some communication devices, possibly incorporating the top-level cryptography of their days.

Registration

The registration fee for the event is 100€ for students (please send a certificate of study from your university) and 500€ for others. This amount includes daily refreshments, lunch, and the excursion.

The registration is open until 24 June 2013 (extended).
