General Information

Eurocrypt 2020 will take place as a virtual conference on May 11-15 2020. Eurocrypt 2020 is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). The proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.

Original contributions on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission. Topics include, but are not limited to:


Eurocrypt 2020 will operate a two-round review system with rebuttal phase. In the first round, the program committee selects the submissions which are considered of value for proceeding to the second round, and the authors receive the first round notification with review comments. The authors of the selected submissions are invited to submit a text-based rebuttal letter to the review comments.

The submissions that have not been selected during the first round of reviews may be submitted in other conferences after the first round notification date.

In the second round the program committee further reviews the selected submissions by taking into account their rebuttal letter. They then make the final decision of acceptance or rejection.

The Program Committee may choose a paper to receive an overall best paper award. In a continuing effort to promote independent work by researchers at an early stage in their career, the Program Committee may also award a prize for the best paper authored exclusively by early-career researchers. To be eligible, all co-authors must be studying full/part-time or have received their degree in 2018 or later. As usual, awards will only be given if deserving papers are identified.


Students whose papers have been accepted and who present their talks at the conference will have their registration waived. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students, whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves, are encouraged to apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends should be sent to the general chair.
