Welcome to the home page of the 17th Workshop on Elliptic Curve Cryptography dedicated to the study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas.
The workshop will take place at KULeuven in Leuven (Belgium) from 16 - 18 September 2013 and is jointly organized by the Section of Algebra (Department of Mathematics, KULeuven) and COSIC (Department of Electrical Engineering, KULeuven). The workshop will be held in the city center of Leuven, Maria-Theresiacollege, Sint-Michielsstraat 6, 3000 Leuven.
In conjunction with ECC 2013, we are organizing a summer school on elliptic and hyperelliptic curve cryptography. The summer school will take place immediately before ECC, namely, 11 - 13 September 2013. The summer school takes place at Computer Science department in Arenberg Campus Celestijnenlaan 200A, B-3001 Heverlee, which can be easily reached from city center of Leuven by bus.
Over the past years the ECC conference series has broadened its scope beyond elliptic curve cryptography and now covers a wide range of areas within modern cryptography. For instance, past ECC conferences included presentations on hyperelliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based cryptography, side-channel attaks, voting protocols, quantum key distribution, AES, hash functions and implementation issues.
