A conference in honor of Joachim Rosenthal's 60th birthday

July 11 - 15, 2022

Zurich, Switzerland

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.

Contributed Talks

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: A Volume 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.

More information on the submission will be announced soon.
