The seminar addresses current research on information security and cryptography, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective.


The official registration for the seminar will occur at the organizational meeting. The students are encouraged to pre-register before this initial meeting by sending an e-mail to seminar2012(at)mail-infsec(dot)cs(dot)uni-saarland(dot)de. Pre-registration is not binding and is no longer necessary for the students who have already contacted us regarding the seminar (this effectively counts as pre-registering). For your final registration you have to show up in the organizational meeting. Places for the final registration will be provided in the order of pre-registration until all places are taken.


There are no formal requirements for participation. Students should be familiar with basic topics in computer security and cryptography.

Participation in the organizational meeting and all the presentation sessions is mandatory.

Each presentation has been allocated 30 minutes. The length of each talk should be 25 minutes, while the remaining 5 minutes will be used for questions and comments. We would like this to be a seminar that participants can profit from; so the main emphasis of the talks must be on understandability.

Additionally, after the talks of each session the team has allocated 15 minutes to present a list of potentially interesting, scientifically novel ideas, for discussing them in the class, and for identifying the most promising ideas on which the team could work on further.
