Boutros gives cryptography talks at BerkeleyPublished Feb 26, 2020
Dr. Joseph Boutros, professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program participated in a recent workshop on lattices and cryptography at the University of California, Berkeley (USA). Boutros's talk, "When Cryptography Meets Modern Channel Coding," was part of the Lattices: Geometry, Algorithms and Hardness workshop held 18-20 Feb. The workshop focused on the geometric, algorithmic and complexity-theoretic aspects of lattice problems, including connections to other areas such as combinatorial optimization and coding theory. Boutros also gave a talk at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, the world's leading venue for collaborative research in theoretical computer science. The Simons Institute is housed in Calvin Lab, a dedicated building on the Berkeley campus.
