About this event

This scientific school introduces students to post-quantum cryptography. International experts cover the most relevants aspects of the area.Recently, the development of fault-tolerant quantum computers has accelerated, driven by heavy public and private investment. Preparing cryptography for the arrival of quantum computers thus has become an important frontier of computer science. Post-quantum cryptography (PQC) aims to redesign cryptographic algorithms in a way such that they can be used on today’s computers and withstand potential future quantum attacks.

This 5-day-long scientific school introduces students to the topic of post-quantum cryptography. International experts in the area of post-quantum cryptography cover the different, most relevant aspects of the topic going over all areas of post-quantum cryptography. In addition, the school gives a quick crash course on cryptographic basics to also enable students from outside cryptography to follow the school. The lectures should be accessible to any person with knowledge equivalent to having a bachelor in mathematics, computer science, physics, or the IT side of electrical engineering. The first day is optional and covers an academic skills training on academic writing and presentation skills.

This school is organized as part of the Quantum-Safe Internet doctoral network (DN), Project 101072637, a Marie Skłodowska Curie action (HORIZON-MSCA-2021-DN-01) but the school is open to participants outside the QSI network.
