We are inviting you, your students and colleagues to take part in The Fifth International Students’ Olympiad in Cryptography NSUCRYPTO’2018. It consists of two independent Internet rounds:
-       the first round will be held on October 14, 2018;
-       the second round will be held during October 15 – October 22, 2018.

NSUCRYPTO is the unique cryptographic Olympiad containing scientific mathematical problems for school students, university students and professionals from any country. Its aim is to involve young researchers in solving curious and tough scientific problems of modern cryptography.

The First round (duration 4 hours 30 minutes) is individual and consists of two sections: A and B. Theoretical problems in mathematics of cryptography are offered to participants. The Second round (duration 1 week) is devoted to research and programming problems of cryptography solved in teams.

You could find more information (the rules of the Olympiad, the problems of the previous NSUCRYPTO and their solutions) at the Olympiad website https://nsucrypto.nsu.ru/
The Program committee of the Olympiad includes specialists from University of Leuven (Belgium), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), University of Paris 8 (France), INRIA Paris (France), University of Bergen (Norway), National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA), Novosibirsk State University (Russia), Sobolev Institute of Mathematics (Russia), Tomsk State University (Russia), Belarusian State University (Belarus), Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee  (India), Naval Postgraduate School (USA), University of South Florida (USA).
