Thematic Trimester on Lattices: Algorithms, Complexity, and Cryptography

From 14/01/2020 to 15/05/2020
PROMETHEUS participation to workshops program at Berkeley with long-term residence

Several PROMETHEUS members are currently at the Simons Institute of Berkeley - University of California. Five thematic workshops are scheduled: 

Lattices: Algorithms, Complexity, and Cryptography Boot Camp
Jan. 21 – Jan. 24, 2020

Lattices: Geometry, Algorithms and Hardness
Feb. 18 – Feb. 21, 2020

Quantum Cryptanalysis of Post-Quantum Cryptography
Feb. 22 – Feb. 24, 2020

Lattices: New Cryptographic Capabilities
Mar. 23 – Mar. 26, 2020

Lattices: From Theory to Practice
Apr. 27 – May 1, 2020

The goal of this program is to bring together experts in these areas in order to attack some of the main outstanding open questions, and to discover new connections between lattices, computer science, and mathematics. The need to thoroughly understand the computational landscape and cryptographic capabilities of lattice problems is greater now than ever, given the possibility that secure communication on the internet and secure collaboration on the cloud might soon be powered by lattices.
