* to identify gaps between state of the art in
cryptology research and current and forthcoming
requirements for cryptographic algorithms and
* to establish a constituency of interested parties
to contribute to and monitor the work of the
STORK project in its planning of future research
The workshop is open to all interested parties. It will last for one and a
half days, starting in the morning on Tuesday 26th November and ending with
lunch on Wednesday 27th November. The preliminary program is now
available. Submitting a position paper is no prerequisite for participation

8th Estonian Winter School in Computer Science (EWSCS)
8th Estonian Winter School in Computer Science (EWSCS)
March 2 - 7, 2003
CALL for PARTICIPATION
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
EWSCS is a series of regional-scope international winter schools held
annually in Estonia. EWSCS are organized by CIDEC, a joint initiative of
Institute of Cybernetics (Tallinn), Tallinn Technical University and
University of Tartu for the advancement of higher education in computer
science and information technology. EWSCS'03 is the eighth event of the
The main objective of EWSCS is to expose Estonian, Baltic, and Nordic
graduate students in computer science (but also interested students from
elsewhere) to frontline research topics usually not covered within the
regular curricula. The subject of the schools is general computer science,
with a bias towards theory, this comprising both algorithms, complexity
and models of computation, and semantics, logic and programming theory.
The working language of the schools is English.
The schools' scientific programme consists of short courses by renowned
specialists and a student session.
The course list for EWSCS'03 is the following:
* Gregory Chaitin (IBM T.J. Watson RC): Algorithmic Information
* Patrick Cousot (ENS): Abstract Interpretation
* Ivan Damgård (Aarhus U.): Theory and Practice of Multiparty
* Johan Håstad (KTH): The PCP Theorem with Some Applications to
For the student session, short presentations (20 min) are solicited from
the participants of the school. The selection is based on abstracts of
roughly one page (50-60 lines of plain text).
The social programme consists of an excursion and a conference dinner.
