Description

Recent trends, such as the NIST initiative to standardize post-quantum cryptography, point to large-scale adoption of lattice-based cryptography in the near future. There has consequently been a great deal of attention devoted to making various aspects of lattice-based cryptography practical.

This workshop will focus on questions related to the transition of lattice-based cryptography from theory to practice including the hardness of lattice problems arising from algebraic number theory, and algorithmic solutions to practical issues such as time and space-efficiency, side-channel resistance, and ease of hardware implementations.

The workshop will bring together theoretical and applied cryptographers and computational number-theorists, and will also encourage interaction amongst different communities within and outside cryptography.
