Secure Multiparty Computation: Theory and Practice

19-22 January, 2020 at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

Supported by IISc Institutions-of-Eminence (IoE) Initiative

We are excited to be hosting a workshop on “Secure Multi-Party Computation: Theory and Practice” at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore as a part of Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA).

Secure multiparty computation (MPC) allows two or more parties to compute some joint function over their private inputs while ensuring privacy (parties learn only the output of the computation) and correctness (output of the computation is correct). Since its introduction by Andrew Yao in the 1980s, MPC has evolved as one of the most active research areas in both theoretical and applied cryptography. The workshop will comprise of tutorials covering the basics of secure computation followed by advanced tracks to bring the participants up to date with the latest results in this exciting field.
