GTA-RNS 2008 – International Workshop on

Generation, Testing and Applications of Random Number Sequences

in conjunction with

SYNASC 2008

10th International Symposium on

Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing

Timisoara, Romania

September 26 - 29, 2008

Workshop description:

The focus of this workshop is on the generation and testing of random number sequences, but papers describing applications of random sequences in various fields of symbolic and numeric computations are also welcome. In particular, random number sequences are of great importance for digital cryptography as well as for the newly emerging quantum cryptography. Bringing into light original contributions of either theoretical or practical nature is the main goal of this workshop.

Topics:

The main topics of the workshop are:

-          Generation of pseudo-random number sequences

-          Generation of true random number sequences

-          Efficient implementation of software random number generators

-          Parallel algorithms for generation of RNS

-          Cryptographically secure random number generators

-          Hardware random number generators

-          Unpredictable random number generators

-          Statistical testing of random number sequences

-          Efficient implementation of statistical tests for RNS

-          Parallel algorithms for testing RNS

-          Application of random number sequences in digital cryptography

-          Application of random number sequences in quantum cryptography

-          Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo methods

Submission of papers:

The papers of up to 6 pages should be formatted according to the IEEE conference style (http://synasc08.info.uvt.ro/storage/IEEE_CS_Latex.zip) and must be submitted electronically to asuciu@cs.utcluj.ro.

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees of the program committee and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. Papers accepted for presentation will be published in the SYNASC'08 post-proceedings (published by Conference Publishing Service (CSP)).
