Institute for Experimental Mathematics

The IEM maintains contact to researchers around the world by playing host to between 35 and 40 guests each year under its visiting scholars programme and by holding international workshops on a regular basis.
Some examples of its collaboration and contacts at national and international level are listed below:

  • The IEM plays a leading role in the organisation of international conferences, e.g. Workshop on Arithmetic Geometry, IEM, 22.-23.01.2008; Essen Network Security Workshop, IEM, 03.-04.04.2008; Workshop on Factoring Large Numbers, Discrete Logarithms and Cryptanalytical Hardware, IEM, 22.-23.04.2008; IEEE GERMAN-AFRICA Workshop on Information and Communication Technology, IEM, 11.-13.11.2008.
  • Members of the IEM sit on the executive boards of international committees, including the Scientific Board CRM (Barcelona), ITG Technical Committee 5.2 "Kommunikationsnetze und -systeme" [Communication Networks and Systems], Working Group 6.2 on Broadband Communications of IFIP-TC6, IEEE Communication Society (Powerline Communications).
  • The IEM has cooperation agreements with numerous international universities and research institutions in the USA, Canada, South Africa, South Korea, China and the Netherlands.
  • Members of the IEM are co-editors of international journals, including the International Journal on Communication Systems, Journal of Mathematical Cryptology, Journal of Combinatorial Designs, Journal of Discrete Mathematical Sciences and Cryptography, Japanese IEICE Transactions on Fundamentals of Electronics, Communications and Computer Sciences.
