Invited Speakers

Angela Robinson, NIST

Angela Robinson is a mathematician in the Computer Security Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) where she is contributing to the current NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization effort. She completed her PhD in mathematics at Florida Atlantic University under the supervision of Rainer Steinwandt.  Her research includes code-based cryptography, cryptanalysis, and privacy-enhancing cryptography.

Antoine Joux, CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security

Formerly engineer at the DGA, then scientific deputy director at the DCSSI (now ANSSI), part-time professor at the University of Versailles - Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and holder of the Cryptology chair of the Sorbonne University foundation, Antoine Joux is currently a permanent researcher at the CISPA Helmholtz Center for Cybersecurity in Saarbrücken, Germany, and an honorary professor at Saarbrücken University. His specialty is cryptography and much of his work focuses on cryptanalysis, the study of vulnerabilities in cryptographic systems. Co-winner of the Gödel Prize in 2013 and Fellow of the IACR (International Association for Cryptologic Research), he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant (Almacrypt) on the algorithmic study of mathematical problems whose supposed difficulty serves as a foundation in public key cryptography.
