DIMACS Workshop on Multicore and Cryptography

Monday, July 21, 2014 – Wednesday, July 23, 2014 ( 8:30 am to 5:00 pm )

Location: Stevens Institute of Technology, Bissinger Room

Stevens Institute of Technology will host the upcoming workshop titled "DIMACS Workshop on Multicore and Cryptography" from Monday, July 21 to Wednesday, July 23, 2014. The goal of this workshop is to explore and advance the state-of-the-art of multi-/many core computing in cryptography in theory, practice, and education.

The workshop seeks to bridge across the disciplines and bring together researchers and educators from both computing and cybersecurity. Questions of interest at this workshop include:

  • How to design new cryptographic primitives and protocols that can make efficient use of ever-evolving multi/many-core computing?
  • How to design and implement new cryptographic primitives and protocols that withstand cryptanalysis in the context of multi/many-core capabilities?
  • How to best (re-)implement legacy mechanism and protocols and adjust parameter choices for multi/many-core computing environments?

Aside from looking at the topic from a research perspective, this workshop will also include a focus on introducing the topic to teaching. Specifically, the workshop intends to bridge the gap between teaching and research, exploring successful teaching methods and allowing participants to introduce and share their teaching materials.
