Original contributions on all technical aspects of
cryptology are solicited for submission. Topics include, but are not limited to:
foundational theory and mathematics
the design, proposal, and analysis of cryptographic primitives and protocols
secure implementation and optimization in hardware or software; and applied aspects of cryptography
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.
