The semester will begin with a boot camp featuring introductory talks meant to create a common language among the participants and to highlight the important open questions in the field. Among the main topics to be covered are: (a) Algorithms for Lattice Problems; (b) Complexity of Lattice Problems; (c) Lattice-based Cryptography and (d) Algebraic Lattices and Practical Lattice Cryptography.
The Boot Camp is intended to acquaint program participants with the key themes of the program. It will consist of five days of tutorial presentations.
Further details about this boot camp will be posted in due course. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers lattices2020 [at] lists.simons.berkeley.edu (at this address).
