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.
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:
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.
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 the workshop chair by January 7, 2022.
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.
