Code-based cryptography workshop11-5-2011 - 12-5-2011
On May 11-12 a workshop on code-based cryptography will take
place in Eindhoven. The workshop is organized by the
Coding and Cryptology group at the
Technische Universiteit Eindhoven
in co-operation with
ECRYPT II (European Network of Excellence in Cryptology II).
Back to calendar
The goal of this two-day workshop is to introduce the field of coding
in cryptography to everyone interested and to discuss recent developments.
During the first day there will be talks on code-based cryptography.
The research retreat on Day 2 aims at bringing everyone together
who is interested in discussions on how to move forward in code-based

Mathematics cluster DIAMANT
3 DIAMANT PhD positions awarded19-12-2017
NWO, following a shortlist provided by the DIAMANT board, has decided to award 3 PhD positions to young DIAMANT members: Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft), Jan Steffen Müller (RUG) and Arno Kret (UvA).
DIAMANT funding continued 19-12-2017
The funding of all four mathematics clusters has been continued by NWO. For the coming two years 85 kE will be available in each cluster.
NWO Call for Tenure Track positions22-7-2016
NWO has opened a call for tenure track positions. Proposals for these positions, which include one PhD position for each tenure track position, can be submitted directly to NWO by professors from the 4 mathematics clusters, including Diamant. Diamant professors are warmly encouraged to submit proposals. Read more.
Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound 25-5-2016
A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n.
