The IACR School on Computer-aided Cryptography will take place at University of Maryland, College Park, USA on June 1- 4 2015.
The goal of the school is to provide participants with an overview of computer-aided cryptography with a special focus on computer-aided cryptographic proofs using the EasyCrypt tool. Lectures discussing the theoretical aspects of computer-aided cryptography will be complemented by hands-on lab sessions, covering all aspects of the tool, from the basic aspects of formalizing cryptographic schemes and properties to advanced code-based proof techniques. Invited lectures will cover more specialized computer-aided cryptography techniques and tools.
The school is free of charge for participants, but the number of places is limited. To register, send an email to email@example.com. We provide a limited number of travel stipends to America-based students. Please indicate in your registration if you want to apply for a stipend.
The school will take place in room CSIC (computer science instructional center) 2107.

You can get EasyCrypt via our public git repository (browse):
git clone https://github.com/EasyCrypt/easycrypt.git
We are also providing binary packages (last update: 27/05/2015)
The main objective of the school will be to give participants with some background in cryptography the necessary knowledge in formal methods to formalize cryptographic definitions and perform computer-aided cryptographic proofs in EasyCrypt. Furthermore, the school can also serve as an introduction to provable security for participants with a strong background in formal methods.
Small Circuits for Cryptographic Applications
Consider the function
f(x1,x2,x3,x4,x5) = x1x2x3 + x1x2x4 + x1x2x5 + x1x3x4 + x1x3x5 + x1x4x5 + x2x3x4 + x2x3x5 + x2x4x5 + x3x4x5 + x1x2x3x4 + x1x2x3x5 + x1x2x4x5 + x1x3x4x5 + x2x3x4x5
Using only addition and multiplication modulo 2, we would like to find good circuits under a variety of metrics. For example: how many multiplications are required? Take a guess and come to the talk.
We cannot arrange accommodation for summer school participants, UMD lists a number of options at http://cvs.umd.edu/visitors/offcampus.html.
