Institute Hosts Differential Privacy Meets Multi-Party Computation (DPMPC) Workshop

The Hariri Institute is pleased to host the Differential Privacy Meets Multi-Party Computation (DPMPC) Workshop. Organized by Ran Canetti, Professor of Computer Science & Director of Center of Reliable Information System and Cyber Security, and Shafi Goldwasser, RSA Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in MIT and a co-leader of the cryptography and information security group, the two-day workshop features over 16 different speakers from 13 different universities as well as panelists Ahmed Ghappour (BU Law), Paul Ohm (Georgetown Law), Salil Vadhan (Harvard), Ran Canetti (BU), and moderator Shafi Goldwasser (MIT).

Both MPC and DP address related but different privacy concerns. Where one technology applies the other one may not, and sometime both technologies should be used to gain the security necessary. This workshop is dedicated to understanding both technologies, when they apply, and what is the possible synergy between them.

The workshop is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Modular Approach to Cloud Security (MACS).

Online registration is requested (registration is free).
