1. Announcement & CfP: Journal of Mathematical Cryptology
Starting in 2007 with 4 issues/year, Walter de Gruyter will publish a
new high-quality journal devoted to interactions between Cryptology and
Mathematics:
Journal of Mathematical Cryptology
Aims and Scope:
The Journal of Mathematical Cryptology (JMC) is a forum for original
research articles in the area of mathematical cryptology. As such, work
in the theory of cryptology and articles linking mathematics with
cryptology are welcome. Cryptologically significant submissions from all
areas of mathematics are equally welcome, including but not limited to,
algebra, algebraic geometry, coding theory, combinatorics, number
theory, probability and stochastic processes. In particular, the scope
includes mathematical results of algorithmic or computational nature
that are of interest to cryptology. While JMC does not cover information
security as a whole, the submission of manuscripts on information
security with a strong mathematical emphasis is explicitly encouraged.
Editorial board:
Simon Blackburn; Ernie Brickell; Mike Burmester; Ronald Cramer; Ed Dawson;
Gerhard Frey; Robert Gilman; Otokar Grosek; Hideki Imai; Kwangjo Kim; Neal Koblitz; Kaoru Kurosawa; Spyros Magliveras; Alfred Menezes; Ron Mullin; Phong Nguyen; Birgit Pfitzmann; Josef Pieprzyk; Rei Safavi-Naini;
Rainer Steinwandt; Doug Stinson; Tran van Trung; Wandi Wei; Hugh Williams; Moti Yung
Manuscript submission:
High-quality submissions to this new journal are welcome now and
manuscripts should be submitted by email as PDF- or PS-file to one of
the managing editors:
Spyros Magliveras (spyros@fau.edu); Rainer Steinwandt (rsteinwa@fau.edu) Tran van Trung (trung@iem.uni-due.de)
Manuscripts are evaluated basing on at least two review reports. Only
high-quality papers will be accepted. For accepted manuscripts, authors
are requested to provide LaTeX sources using a style file provided by
Walter de Gruyter.

2. Special Semester on Grobner Bases
A Special Semester on Grobner Bases and Related methods will
start on February. One of the workshops organized during this
semester is called GrÃ¶bner Bases in Cryptography, Coding Theory,
and Algebraic Combinatorics.

3. Undeniable Signature Schemes Using Braid Groups
Tony Thomas, Arbind Kumar Lal
Artin's braid groups have been recently suggested as a new
source for public-key cryptography. In this paper we propose
the first undeniable signature schemes using the conjugacy
problem and the decomposition problem in the braid groups which
are believed to be hard problems.
