This workshop will be live streamed on our website. Full participation (including the capacity to ask questions) will be available via Zoom webinar. A link to the Zoom webinar will be shared with registrants closer to the event date. Please register by clicking the registration link on this page.

This workshop will explore new advances recently made towards basing indistinguishability obfuscation (iO) on standard assumptions. Talks will present some of the recent progress made, as well as the challenges that still remain.  Topics explored will include the following: evidence for and attacks on computational assumptions, including large-modulus LPN, local pseudorandom generators, and circular security; approaches for post-quantum secure iO; barriers for further reduction of assumptions.
