GTEM 2009: Workshop on Pairings in Arithmetic Geometry and Cryptography

FP6 Research and Training Network GTEM [Galois Theory and Explicit Methods], under the guidance of Herr Prof. Dr. Gerhard Frey, organised a Workshop on Pairings in Arithmetic Geometry and Cryptography at the Institute of Experimental Mathematics.

I am a Junior member of this research group and I participated in the workshop.

The workshop took place at May 4, 5 and 6 , 2009. In the workshop we studied bilinear structures on ideal class groups of curves over finite fields induced by duality theorems of class field theory. Computational aspects as well as applications to public key cryptography were in the center of the talks.

Some of the speakers were P. Barreto, S.Duquesne, D.M. Freeman, G. Frey, F. Hess, D. Lubicz, M. Naehrig, M. Scott and F. Vercauteren.
