The IACR is soliciting for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with on Saturday, May 9, and/or Sunday, May 10. Each such event is expected to provide a forum for discussing a specific topic of the broad cryptographic world (theory, practice, implementation, standardizations, industry, etc.). The format of the event (e.g., workshop, tutorial, panel, etc.) is up to the organizers.
Affiliated events can be 1-2 days long. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the workshop chair at email@example.com by September 1, 2019 (23:59 UTC).
The workshop organizers will provide for each event:
The organization of an affiliated event is supposed to be relatively easy. The entire registration process as well as the local organization is done by the IACR (via the general and workshop chairs). The proposal submitters need to identify a topic and decide on the format, and upon acceptance coordinate the program/speakers.
The registration fee for attendees of affiliated events will be charged via the registration process and will cover the incurred costs for the location and equipment. Being registered for a given day of workshop enables a participant to attend any of the workshops of that particular day.
Any additional costs (for example, costs of the program, reimbursements to invited speakers, or printing proceedings) fall into the responsibility of the individual event organizers.
The organizers of the accepted events are expected to maintain an updated website (which will be linked from the website), containing all relevant information for participants.
Proposals for affiliated events should include the following information in this order:
A file (preferably in PDF format) containing all the above information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Eurocrypt 2020 workshop proposal by the submission deadline.
|Submission deadline for proposals:||September 1, 2019, 23:59 UTC|
|Notification will be sent by:||September 15, 2019|
Given the limited amount of conference rooms available, events will be selected based on their novelty, importance, and interest that they may have in the cryptographic community. The agreement of leading members of the cryptographic community to engage with the event (as speakers or committee members) will be taken into account.
