This volume contains the proceedings of the Eighth International
Conference on Finite Fields and Applications, held in Melbourne,
Australia, July 9–13, 2007. It contains 5 invited survey papers
as well as original research articles covering various theoretical and
applied areas related to finite fields.

Finite fields, and the computational and algorithmic aspects of finite field
problems, continue to grow in importance and interest in the mathematical
and computer science communities because of their applications in so many
diverse areas. In particular, finite fields now play very important roles in
number theory, algebra, and algebraic geometry, as well as in computer
science, statistics, and engineering. Areas of application include algebraic
coding theory, cryptology, and combinatorial design theory.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in finite fields and applications.
