Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, February 5th 2021, or created by us.
NuTMiC 2021 will be the third edition of a cycle of the conference on the application of number theory to cryptography and cryptanalysis. The first edition was held at the University of Warsaw in September 2017. The second edition was held at the Paris-Sorbonne University in June 2019.
The aim of the conference is to cross-pollinate Number Theory and Cryptology. On the one hand, the conference is going to explore Number Theory challenges that flow from rapidly evolving fields of modern Cryptology. On the other hand, it is going to investigate Number Theory methods in the design and analysis of cryptologic systems and protocols. Besides the well-established connections between the two domains such as primality testing, factorization, elliptic curves, lattices (to mention a few), the conference endeavors to forge new ones that would encompass Number Theory structures and algorithms that have never been used in Cryptology before. It is expected that these new connections would lead to novel, more efficient, and secure cryptographic systems and protocols (such as one-way functions, pseudorandom number generators, encryption algorithms, digital signatures, etc.).
