General Information

Welcome to the Spring School on Symmetric Cryptography.

The Spring school will be held in Bochum, Germany. Bochum is located within the famous "Ruhr Area", Germany's former primary location for coal mining and steel industry. Although most coal mines have been closed, the hidden beauty of these old days has been preserved in many places.

The Spring school takes place right before FSE 2016

This school is organized within ECRYPT-CSA, a Coordination and Support Action sponsored by the European Union's H2020 program. The goals of this school is to provide academia and industry with some of the necessary background to understand symmetric cryptograpy. On top, several recent developments in symmetric cryptography design and implementations will be presented.
