We would like to attract student's interest to cryptography, draw an attention of young mathematicians and IT-researchers to its mathematical problems. The problems will be correspondent with modern cryptographic ciphers, protocols, algorithms and mathematical methods in cryptography and cryptanalysis. The language of Olympiad is English.

There will be two independent Internet rounds:

The First round: November 15, 2015 at 15:00 NOVT (UTC+6)
  • duration – 4 hours 30 minutes; individual round
  • solving of theoretical problems in mathematics of cryptography
  • two sections: student’s section / school section
The Second round: November 16 - November 23, 2015
  • duration – a week; team round (1, 2 or 3 members)
  • solving of hard research and programming problems of cryptography

Organizers:

Novosibirsk State University (DMM), Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Tomsk State University, Belarusian State University, University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium).
