Public Lecture
Date: Monday 14 July
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: The Edge, State Library of Queensland
Speaker: Professor Andrew White, The University of Queensland
Prof. Andrew White enjoys communicating the weirdness of quantum mechanics  while making sure people know just how much fun science really is.
In this public lecture Prof. White will lead you through the progress and  the pitfalls (or the ups and downs) of quantum computing and cryptography. And he will explain how these machines - that use strange subatomic behaviour -could spark a computer revolution.
2014 AMSI Winter School on Contemporary aspects of cryptography

The 9th annual AMSI Winter School will be held at the University of Queensland at Brisbane, Australia from 7 - 18 July 2014. The theme is Contemporary Aspects of Cryptography.

Cryptography is the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties, i.e., making codes and breaking codes.

Historically, cryptography has effectively been synonymous with encryption and decryption. Encryption is the conversion of information from a readable state to apparent nonsense, and decryption is about finding patterns in that which looks random; finding ways to probe data and recover hidden patterns. Modern cryptography involves sometimes surprising intersections of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering. Some applications of cryptography include ATM cards, computer passwords, and electronic commerce.

The Winter School is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines. It provides the opportunity for participants to expand their skills in the mathematical sciences and build collaborative networks with other PhD students and early career researchers.

The first week will feature introductory courses focusing on the relevant algebraic background (such as finite fields, elliptic curves and necessary techniques from combinatorics) as well an introduction to standard topics in cryptography such as RSA and curve based encryption. The second week will feature a number of more specialized topics leading to an insight into current areas of active research, including provable security, cryptographic complexity, applications of arithmetic geometry and quantum information science.
The invited speakers are eminent national and international lecturers.

The AMSI Winter School is held annually at the University of Queensland, and is funded jointly by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute.
