ECC 2013 will be preceded by a summer school on Elliptic and Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptography. The summer school will take place at Celestijnenlaan 200A, Heverlee (Belgium) and will run from 11-13 September 2013.

Registration for the summer school is mandatory via the registration page, where you can choose to also attend ECC 2013.

The course is intended for graduate students in cryptography and mathematics. Introductory topics on elliptic curves and cryptographic applications will be covered, with an emphasis on providing a strong background in support of the research talks at ECC.

The booklet with the program and introductory materials can be found here.
