Centre for Advanced Computing: Algorithm and Cryptography

Our vision is to be the leading centre in Australasia for research into algorithms, complexity and cryptography applied to advanced computing systems. We have determined a mission to develop algorithms and cryptographic methods and protocols for applications to advanced information and computation systems.

We are a focal point for joint research activities between its members who come from diverse backgrounds in Mathematics and Computer Science.

The Centre for Advanced Computing: Algorithm and Cryptography (ACAC) has its origins in the 'Algorithms and Complexity' group, founded in 1996 by Professor Bernard Mans, Dr Scott McCallum and Professor Igor Shparlinski. In 2001-2002, Professor Josef Pieprzyk and Dr Christophe Doche joined the group.

Our research has won significant Australian Research Council grants. We also maintain a successful seminar and visitor program.

Since 2016, the centre has also developed a bilateral relationship with the Optus Macquarie Cyber Hub (directed by A/Prof C. Doche)
