Research Seminar in Cryptography
Seminar coordinator: Toomas Krips
First meeting: Friday, September 17, 2021, 4:15pm, room 2045
Preliminary schedule: TBA
NEW: Due to health reasons, the kickoff seminar will take place wholly on Zoom, see below for link
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.
- The seminar will also be broadcast over Zoom. It may happen that some or all presentations will take place on Zoom. The participants are advised to follow the general covid-related guidelines.
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.
