In addition to the two-day symposium, on Saturday, October 24, participants will have an opportunity to tour the National Cryptologic Museum and participate in a workshop in the NCM Library from 1000-1130 on sources for research in cryptologic history. Bring your research and questions. Sign up to attend this workshop at Registration on the 22nd or 23rd. Also on Saturday at the NCM from 1000-1130 - visit the NCM's Magic Room for "Museum History and Treasures" (no sign-up required).

The theme for the 2015 Symposium will be “A Century of Cryptology.” As we mark the centenary years of World War I (1914–1918), when so many significant advancements occurred in the field of cryptology, we will also examine the impact cryptologists made throughout the twentieth century, especially during such periods as World War II, the Cold War, the Korean War, the War in Vietnam, and the post-Cold War era. The Symposium will also include panels that look at the foundations of cryptology before the “Great War.” We welcome submissions from those who are new to the field and those who have presented at previous symposiums.

The Symposium is a prestigious program of the NSA's Center for Cryptologic History that showcases speakers who are recognized as cryptologic authorities from around the world. The theme and agenda topics for the Symposium always attract the interest of scholars, professionals, and the public. Since 2003, the Foundation (NCMF) has teamed with the CCH to help stage this exciting bi-annual event that attracts international attention from academia and the Intelligence Community.
