FOCS 2014 is starting

Hope everyone has a great FOCS! In the previous post we mentioned the two workshops on different aspects of the Fourier transforms occurring today. I also wanted to mention the Tutorial on obfuscation today with talks by  Amit Sahai, Allison Lewko and Dan Boneh. The new constructions of obfuscation and their applications form one of the most exciting and rapidly developing research topics in cryptography (and all of theoretical CS) today, and this would be a great opportunity for non-specialists to catch up on some of these advances.
