Constructing elliptic curves by p-adic methods

We will discuss a p-adic method to construct an elliptic curve over a finite field such that the group of rational points over the base field has some prescribed order N. The method uses ideas of Couveignes-Henocq, and is being developed and improved by my PhD student Reinier Broker.
