Eurocrypt 2022

May 30 to June 3, 2022

Trondheim, Norway

Affiliated Events

IACR is soliciting for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with Eurocrypt 2022 on Sunday, May 29, and/or Monday, May 30. Each such event is expected to provide a forum discussing a specific topic of the broad cryptographic world (theory, practice, implementation, standardizations, etc.). The format of the event (e.g., workshop, tutorial, etc.) is up to the organizers.

Call for Affiliated Events

Affiliated events can be 1-2 days long. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the workshop chair by January 7, 2022.

The workshop organizers will provide for each event:

Information to Submitters

The organization of an affiliated event is supposed to be relatively easy. The registration process as well as the local organization is supported 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 (e.g. costs of the program, reimbursements to invited speakers, or printing proceedings) are 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 Eurocrypt 2022 website), containing all relevant information for participants.

Currently we plan to support physical workshops, but an option to include remote participation is not ruled out.

Submission Format for Affiliated Event Proposals

Proposals for affiliated events should include the following information in this order:

  1. Name (and possible acronym) of the event
  2. Names and contact information of the organizers
  3. Length of event (1-2 days); if 1 day, indicate flexibility for dates
  4. A proposed format (workshop with submitted/invited talks, tutorial, panel, etc.) and potential speakers (if applicable, not complete, and no commitment)
  5. Abstract summarizing the proposed event and its justification
  6. In the case of a submission process:
  7. Estimated number of attendees total and an expected number of student attendees
  8. List of specific potential attendees (not complete, and no commitment); this will help coordinate timing of events that might overlap in audience
  9. A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience
  10. Funding sources that may be used (and for what purposes)
  11. Information of previous similar events (incl. organizational information such as attendance number), if applicable
  12. Link to draft website (if exists)
  13. If it is intended to allow online participation, a statement on how this will be managed

A file (preferably in PDF format) containing all the above information should be sent to the workshop chair by January 7, 2022.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

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.
