Daniele Micciancio (UC San Diego), Chris Peikert (Georgia Institute of Technology)

Many recent exciting developments in cryptography have been based upon relatively new computational problems and assumptions relating to classical mathematical structures.  Prominent examples include approximation problems on point lattices, their specializations to structured lattices arising in algebraic number theory, and, more speculatively, problems from noncommutative algebra.  This workshop will bring together cryptographers, mathematicians and cryptanalysts to investigate the algorithmic and complexity-theoretic aspects of these new problems, the relations among them, and the cryptographic applications they enable. Topics will include, but are not limited to: worst-case versus average-case complexity; the use of algebraic structure in cryptographic constructions and cryptanalytic attacks; and the role of quantum computation in security analysis and cryptanalytic attacks.
