Congratulation to Faruk Gologlu, Robert Granger, Gary McGuire and Jens Zumbragel,
all of the Claude Shannon Institute, who won the Best Paper Award at CRYPTO 2013.
The award was given for their paper On the Function Field Sieve and the
Impact of Higher Splitting Probabilities.|
Congratulations to Alison Sneyd who successfully defended her PhD
"Codes over Rings and Applications to Combinatorics" on 26 February, 2013.
Her supervisor was Dr Eimear Byrne, the external examiner was Professor Alfred
Wassermann from University of Bayreuth, and the
internal examiner was Dr Marcus Greferath.
We are pleased to welcome G. David Forney, Jr. (MIT) as our visitor,
who gave a talk "Codes on Graphs: Past, Present and Future"
on 12 September, 2012 at 4:00 PM in the CASL seminar room.
Congratulations to David Conti, who successfully defended his PhD "An Algebraic
Development of Trellis Theory" done under the supervision of Nigel Boston.
This institute is a new and exciting development in
Ireland for research in Mathematics of Communications.
Funded under the new Science
Foundation Ireland Mathematics Initiative, the Claude
Shannon Institute’s mission is to support research
in broad areas of Mathematics of Communications. The
Claude Shannon Institute has been founded with the following
- Support research in coding theory and cryptography,
and all related areas of mathematics including discrete
mathematics, algebra, algebraic geometry and number
- Create a network of mathematicians, engineers, computer
scientists and industry partners.
- Increase inter-institutional collaboration among
the university partners National University of Ireland
Maynooth, Dublin City University, University College
Dublin, and the University College Cork.
- Provide a coordinated interdisciplinary four year
Ph.D. programme as part of a new Fourth Level Ireland,
equipping graduates for both academia and industry.
- Establish mathematics outreach and education programmes.
The goal of this website is to provide you with useful
information about our institute that we hope makes it
easier for you to get in touch and initiate collaboration
Please browse our site. Should you have comments or
questions about us and our work, or simply need more
information and want to contact us, then we would be
glad to hear from you.
