The Coding and Cryptography Research Group (CCRG) in NTU is jointly organizing a one-day workshop on applied cryptography with the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD and the embassies of France and Germany in Singapore on Dec 3, 2010.

The Key note address is given by Mr. Tan Teck Lee, the CTO of Gemalto. Subsequently, representatives of France, Germany and Singapore are presenting research funding schemes of their countries. Ten selected speakers from the three countries will present state of the art research in applied cryptography from a government, industrial and academic perspective.

The workshop is free of charge, just kindly register here before November 28 if you want to participate.
