Lattices have helped us achieve cryptographic goals that were a cryptographer’s dream for decades. This includes fully homomorphic encryption, homomorphic signatures, attribute-based encryption schemes and many more. Part of the interest in lattice-based cryptography stems from the fact that currently, it is the only way to construct these advanced cryptographic schemes. This workshop will focus on squeezing the most out of lattices, with the ultimate aim of basing all of cryptography on the hardness of lattice problems (the so-called “cryptopia”).

Lattice-based cryptography is a rapidly developing area with huge potential impact. We believe that by bringing together the experts in this area, we can achieve major advances in this area.

Further details about this workshop will be posted in due course. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop-lattices2 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address).

Registration is required to attend this workshop. Space may be limited, and you are advised to register early. The link to the registration form will appear on this page approximately 10 weeks before the workshop. To submit your name for consideration, please register and await confirmation of your acceptance before booking your travel.
