Research Seminar in Cryptography
Seminar coordinator: Dominique Unruh
First meeting: Friday, September 11, 2020, 4:15pm, Delta, room 2047
Contact: Dominique Unruh
Preliminary schedule: here
The main aim of the course is to introduce a variety of research topics from the fields of Computer Security and Cryptography. Participation in the seminar is especially recommended to Bachelor or Master's students who consider specializing in these areas.
- Following the recommendation of the rector, masks will be mandatory in the course. (Optional for the speaker.)
- If you have symptoms of covid (fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing, or sore throat), do not attend in person.
- If you will attend remotely, please let me know in advance so that I can make sure the tech is in place. Since participation is require, I will ask you to use a webcam (not least out of respect for the speaker).
A student will be required to write and present a research report on one of the proposed topics. Each presentation typically takes about 45 minutes (including 10 minutes for questions and discussion). The student should attend the presentations of the other students and participate in the discussion. The actual number of contact hours will depend on the number of presentations (projects), and it will typically be smaller than 32. This work is evaluated by PASS or FAIL grade and gives 3 EAP.
There is an option for extended form of participation in the seminar. This option leads to additional 3 EAP and a grade. Typically the student will provide a novel solution or implementation. This is done by taking the individual course (MTAT.07.020 Special Assignment in Cryptography), and it requires agreement of a supervisor and the seminar organizer.
