Lightweight Crypto Day 2014

Room 570

Education Building, 5th Floor

University of Haifa

The day is dedicated to research in lightweight cryptography, with the emphasis on symmetric-key cryptography targeting low-end devices. The day will be composed of a few lectures, a panel for discussions, and similar research-related activities for those interested in the topic.

When: Sunday, 2.2.14

The date was chosen such that if you attend the Bar-Ilan winter school on Symmetric Encryption in Theory and in Practice, you could extend your stay in Israel a bit, to participate.

Do note that you must register to the winter school separately.

Where: Education Building, Room 570, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel

The day will take place at the Caesarea Rothschild Institute facilities - Room 570 of the education building in the University of Haifa. For the university's map click here.

Accessing the university using public transportation is easy given the abundance of bus routes that reach it. Important bus routes:

  • From the Hof Hacarmel train station (Haifa's southest train station) - 46 or 146 go direct. If in a hurry, grab any bus that goes to Horev Center (11,29,123,132,133), and change in Horev center (please note that 29 is the best option for the changing, as you change buses with no need to change stations).
  • From Lev Hamifratz train station: buses 141 or 146.
  • From Horev center: buses 24,30,36,37,37a,46, or 146.
For the complete list of buses, please consult this list o rbuses information.

Please note that if there will be a demand, we shall arrange for a shuttle from the Hof Hacarmel train station to the university. If you need this service, please let us know.

Participants from countries that have issues with Israel- If you happen to be a citizen of a country that frowns upon the existence of the state of Israel (A.K.A., the Zionist entity/state), please be advised that we will support your visa applications as much as possible. At the same time, please consider that your home country may frown upon (actively or passively) about your actions.
