14th Cryptologic History Symposium 17 & 18 October 2013 Venue - Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Kossiakoff Center 11100 Johns Hopkins Road, Laurel, Maryland 20723-6099 The National Security Agency’s Center for Cryptologic History will hold its biennial Cryptologic History Symposium on Thursday and Friday, 17 and 18 October 2013. Registration is currently open. The theme of the 2013 Symposium is “Technological Change and Cryptology: Meeting the Historical Challenges.” It will focus on the changes that have occurred in the practice and application of cryptanalysis and cryptography as a result of the evolution of technology from manual to machine-assisted to digital. Although the theme focuses on technology topics, the theme is not meant to be exclusive, and there will be panels on a broad range of cryptologic history topics. As in previous symposia, it is expected that historians from the Center for Cryptologic History, the intelligence community, the defense establishment, and the military services will join with scholars from around the world, signals intelligence veterans, graduate and undergraduate students, and members of the public to reflect and to debate topics from the cryptologic past. The Symposium will take place at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory’s Kossiakoff Center in Laurel, Maryland, in between Baltimore and Washington. The Kossiakoff Center is an excellent conference facility and has ample free parking. Travel between the Symposium, BWI, hotels, and restaurants would be difficult without a car as public transportation is limited. Registration - per person: $65/day Student Rate: $35/day (bring student ID to Symposium) Fee includes daily lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments.
