Recent trends, such as the NIST initiative to standardize post-quantum cryptography, point to large-scale adoption of lattice-based cryptography in the near future. There has consequently been a great deal of attention devoted to making various aspects of lattice-based cryptography practical.        

This workshop will focus on questions related to the transition of lattice-based cryptography from theory to practice including the hardness of lattice problems arising from algebraic number theory, and algorithmic solutions to practical issues such as time and space-efficiency, side-channel resistance, and ease of hardware implementations. The workshop will bring together theoretical and applied cryptographers and computational number-theorists, and will also encourage interaction amongst different communities within and outside cryptography.

The workshop is being live streamed on our website. Full participation (including the capacity to ask questions) will be available via Zoom webinar
