ECC 2016, İzmir

The 20th Elliptic Curve Cryptography workshop was held in İzmir, Turkey, from the 5th to the 7th of September this year. Many international colleagues unfortunately couldn’t be there this year: you all missed out. The conference was extremely well organized (special shout-out to the excellent Yaşar Geek Squad!), and almost all of the talks are online…  With video!  So rather than me writing about what was said and done, you can go and check it out for yourself.

It’s remarkable that this workshop has been running successfully for 20 years now: elliptic curve cryptography has come a long way.  It was great to be there to celebrate a milestone of sorts:

Did I mention how well-organised it all was?  Here’s one of the lecture theatres during a break.
