CENTER FOR THE THEORY OF INTERACTIVE COMPUTATION
CTIC is a Sino-Danish research center that starts operations on April 1st, 2011. The center is a three-year collaboration between the Computer Science Department at Aarhus University, Denmark and ITCS, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. Center leaders are Andrew Chi-Chih Yao, Tsinghua, and Peter Bro Miltersen, Aarhus.
The focus areas of the center are computational complexity theory, cryptography, quantum information theory, and algorithmic game theory.

2016.03.08 — From May 30 to June 3, 2016, CFEM and CTIC are hosting a workshop on the theory and practice of MPC, bringing together experts in all aspects of the subject. The workshop is organized in collaboration with the MPCPRO project. The workshop is open for all participants but the target audience is PhD students, postdocs and faculty members.
2016.02.25 — Ivan Damgård is Denmark's Godfather of cryptography! Ivan's research has made a major impact on the crypto scene worldwide, making him one of the most prolific and influential authors in the cryptographic research community. This 2-day symposium will be covering all aspects of modern cryptography to celebrate the work of Ivan Damgård on account of his 60th birthday.
