The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) solicits for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with on Sunday April 29th. Each such event is expected to provide a forum discussing a specific topic of the broad cryptographic world (theory, practice, implementation, standardizations, etc.). This includes workshops, tutorials, etc. that can be annual events, one-time events, or aperiodic.
A PDF version of this call is available here.
October 24 2017
Submission deadline at 23:59:00 UTC
November 13 2017
Affiliated events must be one day long. Submissions of events should be done by mail to the Eurocrypt general chair at firstname.lastname@example.org, by October 24 at 23:59 UTC.
The Eurocrypt organizers will provide for each event:
The organization of an affiliated event is supposed to be relatively easy. The entire registration operation as well as the local organization is done by the IACR (via the Eurocrypt 2018 general chair). The submitters need to identify a topic and decide on the talks and/or panels.
The registration fee will be charged by Eurocrypt for attendees of such affiliated events. From these fees, Eurocrypt will cover the costs for the venue, projector + screen, registration, 2 coffee breaks, lunch, and Internet access. Additional costs (for example, costs of the program, reimbursements to invited speakers, or printing proceedings) falls into the responsibility of the organizers.
The organizers of the accepted events are expected to maintain an updated website (which will be linked from the Eurocrypt 2018 web pages), which will contain all the relevant information for participants.
For specific questions, please contact the general chair at email@example.com.
Proposals should include:
Given the limited amount of halls in the venue, we will select events based on their novelty, importance, and interest that they may have in the cryptographic community. We note that if we will receive a large number of high quality proposals, we may seek more halls in the vicinity of the venue. Submitters of proposals should indicate whether they will be willing to consider locations different than Eurocrypt’s venue.
The agreement of leading members of the cryptographic community to engage with the event (as speakers or committee members) will be taken into account.
