Japan

I was shocked by the devastation of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. There is a large community in Japan of researchers in Elliptic Curve Cryptography. I hope they are all safe. Many fine discoveries about ECC have been made by researchers in Japan.

I have been in contact with my good friend Takakazu Satoh. I can report that he is safe.

I have visited Japan four times for cryptography conferences. Indeed, the only time I have felt an earthquake was when I once attended a workshop at Chuo university in Tokyo. I was woken in the night by the shaking.
