at the University of California, Irvine

This is the first in a series of one-day meetings on the Mathematics of Cryptography at UC Irvine sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The first talk by each speaker will be at the level of a colloquium talk. In particular, Kristin Lauter's first talk (1:30-2:30) should be of interest to a general scientific audience.

There is no registration fee, but we need a head count to order refreshments, so please send an RSVP to the email address at the bottom of this page, including the names of everyone in your party. Thanks! Looking forward to a nice turnout. Feel free to forward this information to anyone you think might be interested.
