Workshop on Functions and Geometries over Finite Fields

This is focused workshop on three topics in the area of finite fields and their applications: 1) Curves, functions fields and their codes; 2) Cryptographic functions over finite fields; 3) Finite geometries and codes. These were chosen due to their mix of mathematical rigour and practical use in communications and cryptology. In particular, the first and third topics have direct applications to coding theory: the study of communications robust against transmission errors. The first and second topics have applications to cryptography: the first using the arithmetic on curves as a trapdoor function for public-key cryptography and the second studying functions which are resilient to known attacks on symmetric-key cryptosystems.
