Modern computing settings necessitate solutions that not only protect storage and communications, but also address the significant challenge of protecting computation.  Cryptographic protocols for secure multi-party computation (MPC) serve as a promising approach, enabling mutually distrusting entities to jointly emulate the correctness and privacy guarantees of an incorruptible trusted third party.  The past decades have witnessed tremendous advances in MPC solutions, but leave a vast canvas of open challenges and unknowns.  

This workshop will focus on exchanging knowledge and building new ideas toward addressing significant questions in the field, including understanding and achieving the best possible efficiency and security guarantees of MPC solutions.
