Theory and Practice of Multi-Party Computation Workshops
Organizers: Thomas Schneider (CROSSING, TU Darmstadt), Ivan Damgård (Aarhus University), Yehuda Lindell (Bar Ilan University), Jesper Buus Nielsen (Aarhus University), Claudio Orlandi (Aarhus University), Mike Rosulek (Oregon State University), Nigel P. Smart (University of Bristol)
CROSSING supports the workshop series since 2017
The TPMPC workshop aims to bring together practitioners and theorists working in multi-party computation. Secure Multi-Party Computation is a powerful cryptographic notion that – in theory – can solve virtually any cryptographic protocol problem. In recent years the technology has been used in practice and holds great promise for future applications. MPC technology can be used to implement, for instance, voting, auctions, procurement and benchmarking with better security, in particular without anyone having to reveal his private data to anyone else.
The TPMPC workshops bring together people in both theory and practice of the field, and we are convinced that this will prove very productive. Leading researchers in the field will present their latest results in secure computation. The workshop is open for all participants, the target audience is PhD students, postdocs and faculty members.
The TPMPC workshops continue a tradition of workshops started in Aarhus, Denmark in 2012. TPMPC is a yearly event, the current plan is to have it in Aarhus in even years and in another location in odd years.
