I would like to thank the committee of NSUCRYPTO for organizing such a unique event. The problems are scientific, challenging and very interesting. They are very diverse - from blockchains and quantum algorithms to Boolean functions and number theory. One learns a lot when trying to solve these problems. I wish the olympiad many new participants and wonderful problems!
I participated in this olympiad since the very beginning and it was one of the most important reasons to learn cryptography. I also used this gained knowledge to solve cryptography tasks in CTF contests, but their impact is actually nowhere close to this olympiad.
First of all, we would like to thank you for this great Olympiad! We enjoyed very much to work on the problems, and we learned a lot from you. You really did an excellent job!
The Olympiad enables us to let the best students of mathematics to get involved in this scientific domain, where pure mathematics, computer science, and engineering meet.
