19-22 February 2012, 2nd Bar-Ilan Winter School on Cryptography: Lattice-Based Cryptography and Applications, Bar Ilan University, Israel

Date: 19-22 February 2012
Location: Bar Ilan University, Israel
Costs: Participation is free, but registration is required.

The winter school will provide an in depth coverage of lattices and their role in cryptographic constructions. Among other things, we will study the basics of lattices, hard problems on lattices and advanced reductions between problems. In addition, we will study cryptographic constructions based on lattices. These will include encryption, interactive protocols, advanced encryption (identity based and others), and finally recent advances in fully homomorphic encryption. The school program includes approximately 20 hours of lectures, a social dinner and an excursion.

The target audience for the school is graduate students and postdocs in cryptography (we will assume background in cryptography, but not lattices). However, faculty, undergrads and professionals with the necessary background are all welcome. The winter school is open to participants from all over the world; all talks will be in English.
