    CONTEMPORARY ALGEBRAIC AND GEOMETRIC TECHNIQUES IN CODING THEORY AND CRYPTOGRAPHY

    (Virtual Summer School on Microsoft TEAMS)

    18-22 July 2022

     

    Today, digital information has become a valuable resource. However, the communication channels that we use for sending and receiving data and those that we use to store data, are imperfect and so subject to malicious attacks.

    Therefore, it is necessary to develop methods for detecting bugs when they occur and, ideally, find new techniques to fix them and new strategies for preventing them.

    These are the main aims in coding theory and in cryptography: we need ever stronger mathematical tools to solve new and hard problems arising from the fast evolution of communication technologies.

    The School aims at bringing together Master/PhD students, academics, and industry security experts in order to figure out how some of the sophisticated algebraic and geometric methods have been applied in recent years in constructing error-correcting codes and in defining secure cryptosystems.

    The school includes a multi-disciplinary program and will last for a week; there will be 4 courses which will explain how geometric and algebraic tools are used in coding theory and cryptography.

    In addition to this, there will be a programming session devoted to the model-checking and analysis of security protocols with the aid of Tamarin Prover, a session in which industries will explain how codes and cryptographic systems play a crucial role in modern technologies and a contributed talk session for young researchers with a high profile, where the best presentation will be awarded. Also, there will be a lecture "De Componendis Cifris: a national initiative" by Prof. Massimiliano Sala from University of Trento in which he will introduce the national initiative De Components Cifris and the benefits of the synergies between Academia and Industries.
