• The 2024 Cryptography Summer Camp

    July 17 - July 21, 2024, Shanghai


With the vigorous development of modern cryptography, the focus has shifted beyond the core security attributes such as confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation of information. Cryptographic techniques are now playing a crucial role in facilitating data circulation and value creation. Particularly, breakthroughs in fields like secure multi-party computation, fully homomorphic encryption, and zero-knowledge proofs have been used in artificial intelligence, financial technology, big data, cloud computing, and blockchain, providing robust support for data security and computational privacy. Concurrently, the rapid advancement of quantum computing poses a serious threat to traditional cryptographic systems, making the research and implementation of post-quantum cryptographic techniques a focal point of both academic and industrial concern. The 2024 Cryptography Summer Camp, co-organized by Shanghai Qi Zhi Institute and the John Hopcroft Center for Computer Science, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, aims to provide a platform for in-depth discussion of the basics and cutting-edge theories and technologies in cryptography. This summer camp is planned to be held from July 17 to 21, 2024. Experts and scholars from well-known universities such as Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Northwestern University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be invited to discuss issues including secure multi-party computation, fully homomorphic encryption, zero-knowledge proofs, and post-quantum cryptography. This event is not only expected to enhance participants' understanding of the basic knowledge, latest research advancements, and practical applications of cryptography but also to stimulate their interest in cryptography research. Through exchanges and discussions with experts in the field, attendees will have the opportunity to gain academic and career insights. Additionally, outstanding students will be encouraged and recommended to pursue further studies in cryptography.
