May 31 – June 3, 2022
This 4-day workshop will bring together Australian and Australasian researchers in mathematics and theoretical computer science, in view of fostering exchanges and collaborations. Specifically, the workshop will focus on two themes, “Computational Complexity and Cryptography” and “Graph Theory and Combinatorics,” from the point of view of both the mathematics and computer science community, with ample time for informal discussions around each. Each day will involve plenary talks by both a member of the mathematics and computer science community, and time devoted to open problems and interesting research directions, as seen by both communities.

The goal of this summer school is to present an in-depth introduction to post-quantum and quantum cryptography for advanced
undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young researchers, in mathematics, computer science, and physics. Lecturers in the school will discuss both topics hand in hand: post-quantum
cryptography, or the art of analyzing security of classical
cryptosystems against attacks, and quantum cryptography, or the art of leveraging quantum effects to develop new cryptographic schemes that are made possible by quantum information.
