Wang Xiaoyun, CACR chairman and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said modern cryptology had evolved to resist attacks from quantum computing power. Through multiple upgrades and iterations, he said, the science of cryptography has transformed into a specialized discipline with a solid mathematical foundation, integrating disciplines including information science, computer science, and physics, fostering global development.
An Xiaolong, CACR's vice chairman and secretary-general, presided over the awards ceremony, announcing newly elected fellows, the winners of the 2021-22 CACR Awards, and the 2023 outstanding doctoral dissertations selected for the conference.
