Leuven, Belgium
Final HEAT workshop



Welcome to the home page of the final HEAT workshop. It will take place in Leuven (Belgium) on 27-28 November 2017.

The workshop will focus on the various aspects of deploying homomorphic encryption in practice: from library selection, over legal aspects to applications in smart meters, image processing, fraud detection and financial applications.

The HEAT project brings together Europe's leading researchers on homomorphic cryptography (KU Leuven, Belgium (Co-ordinator), University of Bristol, UK and University of Luxemburg, Luxemburg), with the leading expertise on lattice based cryptanalysis (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France), and three industrial partners with existing interests in the field (CryptoExperts, France, NXP Semiconductors, Belgium and Thales UK, UK).

The goal of HEAT is to develop advanced cryptographic technologies to process sensitive information in encrypted form, without needing to compromise on the privacy and security of the citizens and organizations that provide the input data. The core technology is based on homomorphic cryptography, which allows to perform computations on encrypted information without decrypting it.

The workshop is organized by University of Bristol and the COSIC group of KU Leuven.
