WAIFI 2016 International Workshop on the Arithmetic of Finite Fields 2016
Jul 13, 2016 - Jul 15, 2016 Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium May 1, 2016

Present CFP : 2016

This workshop is a forum of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and physicists performing research on finite field arithmetic, interested in communicating the advances in the theory, applications, and implementations of finite fields. The work- shop will help to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of finite fields and their hardware/software implementations and technical applications.
This will be the 6th WAIFI workshop after Madrid (Spain, 2007), Siena (Italy, 2008), Istanbul (Turkey, 2010), Bochum (Germany, 2012) and Gebze (Turkey, 2014). The topics of WAIFI 2016 include but are not limited to:

Theory of finite field arithmetic:
◦ Bases (canonical, normal, dual, weakly dual, triangular ...)
◦ Polynomial factorization, irreducible polynomials
◦ Primitive elements
◦ Prime fields, binary fields, extension fields, tower fields ...
◦ Elliptic and hyperelliptic curves

Hardware & software implementations:
◦ Optimal arithmetic modules
◦ Design & implementation of finite field processors
◦ Design & implementation of arithmetic algorithms
◦ Pseudorandom number generators
◦ Hardware/Software Co-design
◦ IP (Intellectual Property) components
◦ Field programmable and reconfigurable systems Applications of finite fields:
◦ Cryptography
◦ Communication systems
◦ Error correcting codes
◦ Finite geometry
◦ Quantum computing

Authors are invited to submit original research papers. Electronic submission will be strongly encouraged. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will appear on the WAIFI webpage. The submission should begin with a title, author list, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The paper should be at most 16 pages, using at least 11-point font and reasonable margins.

◦ Submission deadline: April 18th, 2016
◦ Acceptance notification: June 6th, 2016
◦ Final pre-proceedings version due: June 20th, 2016
◦ Final post-proceedings version due: August 8th, 2016

The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the workshop as post-proceedings. A draft will be available during the workshop.

In order to be included in the proceedings, the authors of an accepted paper must guarantee to present their contri- bution at the workshop. More detailed information on instructions for authors, paper submission, technical program, accomodation, travel and registration will be posted on the Workshop web site: http://www.waifi.org
