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 sectors.

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.

Conference Programme:
The conference programme is available here.
Titles and abstracts for some of the talks are available here.

There will be a Rump Session at ECC 2005, where participants can give 5-minute presentations on recent results, work in progress, or make announcements of interest to attendees. The Rump Session program is available.

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. For information about the summer school can be found here.

The full conference fee is 1200 DKK (approx 160 Euros) for regular attendees, and 600 DKK (approx 80 Euros) for students. The deadline for registration is August 31, but we would greatly appreciate it 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 for convenience.

The registration form is available here

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. DTU is easy to reach by public transport, see Danish Railways for travel details. 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 Malmv which is well connected to Copenhagen by train. More information about transportation to DTU is available here.

Lectures take take place in Oticon Salen of the Technical University Denmark. This is building 107 on this map. The yellow half-points represent bus stops. The closest one is DTU/Raevehoejvej. This bus stop actually exists in two different locations - if you take the 150S from the town center then it will let you out on the east of 107 on the big highway. Mount the stairs and cross the bridge, Oticon Salen is the first building you reach on the footpath once you have crossed the smaller road. Some pictures of Oticon Salen are available here.

If you take bus 300S then the stop is the conveniently located one right next to the conference building. If your journey plan suggests to take the 590 or 591 then this is also very close. The stop called DTU is the east-most stop between quadrant 2 and three. It is possible to walk through the west wing of building 101.

A list of hotels is now available. 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.
