Second Announcement                May 11, 2005

ECC 2005 is the ninth in a series of annual workshops dedicated to the
study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas. Over the past
years the ECC conference series has broadened its scope beyond
curve-based 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, quantum key distribution, AES, implementation issues,
and deployments (e.g., cryptography for travel documents).

At the same time ECC continues to be the premier conference on
elliptic curve cryptography. It is hoped that ECC 2005 will further
our mission of encouraging and stimulating research on the security
and implementation of elliptic curve cryptosystems and related areas,
and encouraging collaboration between mathematicians, computer
scientists and engineers in the academic, industry and government

As with past ECC conferences, there will be about 15 invited lectures
(and no contributed talks) delivered by internationally leading
experts. There will be both state-of-the-art survey lectures as well
as lectures on latest research developments.

Summer School:
  After receiving so much positive feedback we decided to also have a
  summer school on ECC the week before, i.e. September 12.-16.th. 
  Our school is aimed at PhD students who have some background in
  cryptography and mathematics and at Post-Docs in related fields.
  More information can be found at
  The school is made possible through generous funding from 
  the Centre for Foundations in Cryptology and Security (FICS).
  The web site for registration will open in a few days and will be 
  linked from the main page:
  This year, the full conference fee is 1200DKK (~160EUR). We offer 
  a reduced fee of 600DKK (~80 EUR) for students. Deadline for 
  registration is August 31st, but we would greatly appreciate if 
  you would register as early as possible.

  Payment can be done via bank transfer or by cash at the beginning 
  of the conference. Please note that we cannot accept credit cards 
  or any currency except for DKK; the amounts in Euros are stated 
  only to give an easier estimate.
  The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is situated in Kongens
  Lyngby, in a suburb of Copenhagen, the Capital of Denmark. There 
  are local trains commuting between Copenhagen main station and 
  Lyngby and the ride takes 20 minutes. There are international 
  trains including night trains to Copenhagen and Copenhagen's airport 
  is served by all major airlines. Some cheap flight companies also 
  serve Malmö which is well connected to Copenhagen by train. To find 
  out in more detail how to get there, please visit the ECC 2005
  web page.

  Note that Easyjet and Maersk Air offer cheap rides to CPH. 
  Night trains from Germany can be booked at low price at
  A list of hotels can be found on the ECC 2005 page: 
  Please note that there is a big congress taking place in Copenhagen
  the same week as ECC, so you are strongly advised to book your 
  accommodations as early as possible.
