  • Final Extended Abstract

    March 13, 2015

Conference Themes

This is the ninth in the series of biannual workshops Coding and Cryptography. It is organized by INRIA and will be held in Paris at the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP). Our aim is to bring together researchers in all aspects of coding theory, cryptography and related areas, theoretical or applied.


Selection for conference presentation will be made on the basis of an extended abstract. Those wishing to contribute a talk are invited to submit a 6-10 page extended abstract, before January 19, 2015. Extended abstracts of accepted presentations will be collected, and made available online during the conference and for future reference. More details of the submission procedure can be found in the submission section.

Extended Abstracts

Extended abstracts of accepted presentations are available on the Hal preprint server. They are best accessed from the "Browse" tag.

Full papers

After the conference, authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to submit a full version. After a second thorough refereeing process, the best papers will appear in a special issue of the journal Designs, Codes and Cryptography.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Coding theory: error-correcting codes, decoding algorithms, related combinatorial problems;
  • Algorithmic aspects of cryptology: symmetric cryptology, public-key cryptography, cryptanalysis;
  • Discrete mathematics and algorithmic tools related to these two areas, such as: Boolean functions, sequences, finite fields, related algebraic systems...
