Dustin Moody from National Institute of Standards and Technology will speak about Isogenies, Volcanoes, and Edwards Curves. Isogeny volcanoes, connected components of a larger graph, are an interesting structure that have had several recent applications in cryptography.

He will also introduce new formulas for computing isogenies on Edwards curves, which are a new model for elliptic curves, different than the Weierstrass model.
