Call for Papers (PDF version)

The focus of this workshop is to have a forum bringing together mathematicians, engineers and physicists researching on finite field arithmetic, to communicate and advance in the theory, applications and implementations of such fields. The workshop will help to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of finite fields and their hardware/software implementations and technical applications.
