Boolean functions and more generally all the discrete structures used in error correcting coding, cryptography or communications, are highly active areas of research. The workshop Boolean Functions and their Applications (BFA) is to provide a forum for researchers who are working on discrete functions and structures, particularly on Boolean functions, to exchange ideas and interests in open problems, and to further explore their applications in cryptography, error correcting codes and communications.
The program will be constructed around a series of 10-12 tutorial talks by the invited speakers. All participants who wish to contribute a talk of 20 minutes are invited to submit an abstract of at most 1 page. We request previously unpublished results on all aspects of discrete structures, particularly on Boolean functions and their applications in cryptography, coding theory, combinatorics, quantum computing, etc. Topics include but are not limited to:
After the workshop all participants will be invited to submit a paper to a special issue on Boolean Functions and their Applications in the journal
At least one of authors of each accepted abstract must be registered by the early registration deadline: 16-04-2018
