Spring School on Lattice-Based Cryptography

School Overview 

The Spring school will take place in March (20-24th), 2017 at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. It aims at covering lattices, their role in modern cryptography, and their potential use in the post-quantum era. Namely, it will cover the basics of lattices, "hard" lattice problems and the reductions between them, and advanced lattice-based cryptography constructions (e.g. Fully Homomorphic Encryption). The school will also have practical sessions using SageMath.   

Target Audience: Graduate students and Postdocs. 

Location: Lecture Rooms L1 (Mon/Tues) /L3 (Wed-Fri), Andrew Wiles Building, Radcliffe Observatory Site, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6GG.

  • Martin Albrecht (Royal Holloway, University of London)

  • Léo Ducas (CWI, Amsterdam, the Netherland)
