We are inviting you, your students and colleagues to take part in The Fourth International Students' Olympiad in Cryptography NSUCRYPTO'2017. It consists of two independent Internet rounds:
- the first round will be held on October 22, 2017;
- the second round will be held during October 23 - October 30, 2017.

NSUCRYPTO is the unique cryptographic Olympiad containing scientific mathematical problems for school students, university students and professionals from any country. Its aim is to involve young researchers in solving curious and tough scientific problems of modern cryptography.

The First round (duration 4 hours 30 minutes) is individual and consists of two sections: A and B. Theoretical problems in mathematics of cryptography are offered to participants. The Second round (duration 1 week) is devoted to research and programming problems of cryptography solved in teams.

You could find more information (the rules of the Olympiad, the problems of the previous NSUCRYPTO and their solutions) at the Olympiad website http://nsucrypto.nsu.ru

The Program committee of the Olympiad includes specialists from University of Leuven (Belgium), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), University of Paris 8 (France), INRIA Paris (France), University of Bergen (Norway), National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA), Novosibirsk State University (Russia), Sobolev Institute of Mathematics (Russia), Tomsk State University (Russia), Belarusian State University (Belarus), Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (India), Naval Postgraduate School (USA).

General sponsors of the Olympiad are Novosibirsk State University, Regional Mathematical Center of NSU, and Doctor Web (the Russian developer of Dr.Web anti-virus software).

We are also would like to draw your attention to the first Master's degree programme «Master in Cryptography» in Russia that starts in September 2018! Duration of study is two academic years. Language of instruction is English. Professionals in cryptography from different countries are invited to deliver lectures. For more details, please, visit http://crypto-master.nsu.ru.

Note that a successful participation in the Olympiad will be considered as a significant personal achievement for application to «Master in Cryptography».
