COVID-19 Update
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Workshop will be held as a VIRTUAL MEETING.
The deadlines have all been changed accordingly:
- Acceptance notification: June 1, 2020
- Final pre-proceedings version due: June 25, 2020
- Final post-proceedings version due: August 5, 2020
- Registration deadline: June 30, 2020
Please note that there will be NO REGISTRATION FEES. However, ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER.
The number of participants will be limited to 200 in order to guarantee that the workshop runs smoothy. Those, who plan to participate are urged therefore to register as early as possible since participation will be on "first come first served" basis.

Workshop Goals
This workshop is a forum of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and physicists performing research on finite field arithmetic, interested in communicating the advances in the theory, applications, and implementations of finite fields. The workshop will help to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of finite fields and their hardware/software implementations and technical applications.
WAIFI 2020 will be held virtually in Rennes, France
Main Workshop Themes
The topics of WAIFI 2020 include but are not limited to:
Theory of finite field arithmetic:
- Bases (normal bases, duality, complexity ...)
- Polynomial factorization, irreducible polynomials
- Primitive polynomials, permutation polynomials
- Special functions over finite fields (Boolean functions, APN functions, ...)
- Curves over finite fields
- Algebraic dynamical systems over finite fields
Hardware/Software implementation of finite field arithmetic:
- Optimal arithmetic modules
- Design and implementation of finite field arithmetic processors
- Design and implementation of arithmetic algorithms
- Pseudorandom number generators
- Hardware/Software Co-design
- IP (Intellectual Property) components
- Field programmable and reconfigurable systems
Applications:
- Cryptography
- Communication systems
- Error correcting codes
- Finite geometry
- Quantum computing
Proceedings
The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series after the workshop as post-proceedings.
