 Title: Complexity measures for multisequences
 Abstract:
Multisequences and their complexity measures are needed in parallelized
versions of stream ciphers in cryptography. In the last decade there has been
considerable interest in the study of multisequences from the cryptographic point
of view. The talk gives a survey of the state of the art in this area.

 Title:  An asymptotic bound for the genus of pointless curves
 Abstract:
The problem of finding a non singular curve of genus g_n without points of degree smaller than n was already studied when the genus is small (compared to the size of the finite field GF(q) ). A construction of a family of curves without points of degree smaller than n was carried out by Clark and Elkies. The genus of such curves is bounded by g_n<n*q^n for large n. In this talk I give a construction of a family of curves over the finite field GF(q) without points of degree smaller than n and of genus smaller than q^n.
