Motivation and Scope

Pairing-based cryptography is an extremePairing 2009 has the acceptance for publication in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, Springer. Please refer to here for more details.ly active area of research which has allowed elegant solutions to a number of long-standing open problems in cryptography (such as efficient identity-based encryption). New developments continue to be made at a rapid pace.

To fully exploit the possibilities offered by pairings it is necessary to have an appropriate background in several theoretical and practical areas. In particular, the development of pairing based cryptography has been both driven and influenced by developments in number theory, algebraic geometry, cryptographic protocols, software and hardware implementations, new security applications, etc.

The aim of "Pairing" conference is thus to bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, all concerned with problems related to pairing-based cryptography. The first conference Pairing 2007 was held in Japan and the proceedings were published in Springer LNCS 4575. We hope that this conference will enhance communication among specialists from various research areas and promote creative interdisciplinary collaborations.
