SCC 2008 is the first of a new series of conferences where research and
development in symbolic computation and cryptography may be presented and
discussed. It is organized in response to the growing interest in applying
and developing methods, techniques, and software tools of symbolic computation for cryptography. The use of lattice reduction algorithms in cryptology and
the application of Gröbner bases in the context of algebraic attacks are
typical examples of explored applications.
SCC 2008 aims at providing an interactive forum for interested researchers
to exchange ideas and views, to present research results and progress, and
to learn and discuss recent developments and emerging problems on
- the design, modeling, and analysis of cryptographic systems and protocols
for which symbolic computation may be used or needed, and
- the design, implementation, and analysis of algorithms and software tools
of symbolic computation that may have potential applications in cryptography.
