One of the most important events of the school-conference is a round table on modern problems of cryptography. The project topics are related to various issues of modern cryptography and information security: from the development of modern methods of cryptanalysis, construction of ciphers, quantum cryptography to the creation of open-source analytical intelligence systems. In 2020, as part of the summer school-conference, teachers from Russia, Europe and the United States, including authors of international standards in the field of cryptography, will work with participants. Part of the school-conference will be held in English.
