Invited Speakers Talk: Analytics in Baseball -- Its More Than Just Numbers
Talk: How to Keep your Secrets in a Post-Quantum World Biography: Kristin Lauter is a Principal Researcher and Research Manager for the Cryptography group at Microsoft Research. Her research focuses on post-quantum cryptography, algorithmic number theory, elliptic curve, pairing-based, and lattice-based cryptography, homomorphic encryption, and cloud security and privacy, including privacy for healthcare. Her work has been featured in the press in articles in Science, Nature, American Scientist, and PNAS. She has published over 75 research articles and 5 books, her work appearing in venues ranging from the American Journal of Mathematics to the Journal of Biomedical Informatics and the Proceedings of CRYPTO and EUROCRYPT. Lauter has served the mathematical community as President of the Association for Women in Mathematics, and on the Council of the American Mathematical Society. She is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and the Association for Women in Mathematics. She was a co-founder of the Women In Numbers Network, a research collaboration community for women in number theory, and she serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for BIRS, the Banff International Research Station. Lauter is also an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington. In 2008, Lauter, together with her coauthors, was awarded the Selfridge Prize in Computational Number Theory. She loves to engage audience with accessible lectures highlighting the importance of mathematics in society. Invited Speakers Kristin Lauter (Microsoft Research) Talk: A Glimpse at the Horizon Biography: Dr. Deanna Haunsperger is a professor of mathematics at Carleton College in Minnesota. Since her own undergraduate days, Deanna has been interested in increasing the number of students who pursue advanced degrees in mathematics. That passion has guided her as a former co-editor for Math Horizons (the Mathematical Association of Americas magazine for undergraduates) and as co-founder and codirector of Carleton's Summer Mathematics Program for Women (a successful, intensive four-week summer program to encourage talented undergraduate women to pursue advanced degrees in the mathematical sciences). She has chaired the MAAs Strategic Planning Committee on
Students and the Council on Outreach. Currently Deanna is President of the MAA. Deanna is married to fellow mathematician Steve Kennedy, and together they have two grown children.

The winning paper, `Improvements to Correlation Attacks Against Stream Ciphers with Nonlinear Combiners for the 2018 EPaDel student paper competition was submitted by Brian Stottler. A student at Elizabethtown College, M r. Stottler presented a clear description of his study of correlation attacks and his original work on the subject. An abstract paraphrasing the main focus of his submission can be found below. Abstract In this paper, we have reviewed the existing knowledge surrounding correlation attacks on LFSR-based stream ciphers with nonlinear combiners. While previously known, we offer explicit detail on the
probabilities involved in each case. Additionally, we introduced concrete methods for deriving optimal q functions, novel attack procedures, and the necessary theory for the new attack procedures.
