Applied Algebra Group at the University of Zürich
Coding theory and cryptography
A conference in honor of Joachim Rosenthal's 60th birthday
July 11 - 15, 2022
This conference is in honor of Joachim Rosenthal on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
Joachim Rosenthal is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Zurich since 2004. He received the Diplom in Mathematics from the University of Basel in 1986 and the Ph.D. in Mathematics from Arizona State University in 1990. From 1990 until 2004 he has been with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, where he has been last "The Notre Dame Chair in Applied Mathematics" and Concurrent Professor of Electrical Engineering.
He is one of the pioneers in the field of algebraic coding theory and cryptography.
He is a fellow of IEEE society and honorary professor of Universidad del Norte, Colombia. He also has supervised 30 Ph.D. students, many of them are active researchers in academia. Currently, he serves as Vice President of the Swiss Mathematical Society.
The conference consists of contributed talks sessions. The topics include but are not restricted to error-correction codes, network coding, subspace codes, convolutional codes, LDPC codes, code-based cryptography, number-theoretic cryptography. The duration of each talk should be about 20-25 minutes. The deadline to submit the abstract for talks was May 15, 2022.
Special issue of Journal of Algebra and Applications
We are also pleased to announce a special issue of the Journal of Algebra and Applications, titled "Recent Advances in Coding theory and cryptography", in honor of Joachim Rosenthal's 60th birthday. This issue is not a proceedings of the conference, and the manuscript submissions can be independent of the contributed talks.
