Workshop CHAE: Challenges in Authenticated Encryption
Date/location: Friday July 17th, 2015,
Vergaderruimte Utrecht, Pieterskerkhof 23, 3512 JS Utrecht

Technical University Eindhoven organizes a one-day workshop in Utrecht to publicly identify critical ongoing challenges in authenticated encryption, looking beyond the CAESAR competition. This is a workshop in the classic sense, featuring intense interactive discussions among serious people, strictly limiting the amount of time used for lectures, and keeping laptops closed.

Early-registration deadline is this Friday 3 July. Funding from ECRYPT-CSA allows free registration until the early-registration deadline, so register quickly! For more information see the website.

The following invitees have confirmed their participation:

?       Carlos Cid (Royal Holloway University of London, UK)

?       Joan Daemen (STMicroelectronics, Belgium, and Radboud Universiteit Netherlands)

?       Orr Dunkelman (University of Haifa, Israel)

?       Kenny Paterson (Royal Holloway University of London, UK)

?       Christian Rechberger (Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Denmark)

?       Patrick Schaumont (Virginia Tech, USA)

?       Adi Shamir (Weizmann Institute, Israel)

The workshop is open to interested parties on a space-available basis. Funding from ECRYPT-CSA allows
free registration until the early-registration deadline. There is a separate registration page.

The workshop will begin at 10:00 and conclude at 17:00.

Organizer: Daniel J. Bernstein: University of Illinois at Chicago, USA,
and Technical University Eindhoven.

4. Vacatures


1. Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) invites excellent postdoctoral researchers to apply for a

Tenure track position in Life Sciences.

The young and lively Life Sciences group at CWI performs fundamental re?search on algorithms, theory, models and simulations on topics from the Life Sciences.
The core themes of the group are biomodeling and biosystems analysis, combi?natorial algorithms for computational biology, computational genomics, medi?cal informatics, neuroinformatics and scientific computing for systems bio?logy.

As a researcher at CWI Amsterdam you are expected to perform fundamental and application-oriented research, to supervise Ph.D. students, to participate in or lead research projects together with other academic institutes or in?dustry, and to acquire external funding. You are able to work as an inde?pen?dent researcher who can set his/her own research agenda, as demonstrated by previous post-doctoral work experience. You can connect to current research at CWI while at the same time bringing in substantial new expertise.

We are looking for a candidate who is demonstrably an expert in the field of
mathematics/computer science/computational science for the Life Sciences. The candidate is willing to cooperate within the Life Sciences group and CWI and to build up interdisciplinary collaborations with researchers in the Life Sciences, e.g., with experimental biologists. A preference will be given to candidates who convincingly show how they strengthen existing core themes of the group or build bridges between them.
