TANC welcomes Cécile Gonçalves and Tania Richmond; Iwan Duursma visits; two new publications; and other news.
Cécile Gonçalves has joined TANC for an M2 internship, working on the arithmetic of curves over finite fields with Ben Smith.
Tania Richmond is spending an M1 internship with us, working on coding theory with Morgan Barbier and Daniel Augot.
Daniel Augot and Alexander Zeh have had a joint paper with Christian Gentner ("An interpolation procedure for list decoding Reed-Solomoon Codes based on generalized Key Equations") accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Information Theory.
Ben Smith has had an article on "Families of explicitly isogenous Jacobians of variable-separated curves" accepted for publication in the LMS Journal of Computational Mathematics.
Iwan Duursma visited TANC for two weeks, and gave two lectures on codes, multiparty computation, and geometric secret sharing schemes.
Daniel Augot was program co-chair for WCC 2011 in Paris, and gave a popular science lecture, "When 1 + 1 = 0", in Savigny-sur-Orge.
François Morain gave an invited talk on algorithms for modular equations and their applications at the C2 ("Codage et cryptographie") workshop in Oléron.
