Lyon, France

Affiliated Events

IACR is soliciting for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with Eurocrypt 2023 on Saturday, April 22, and/or Sunday, April 23, at ENS Lyon. 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.

First Call for Affiliated Events

Affiliated events can be 1-2 days long. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the workshop chair at eurocrypt2023workshops@iacr.org

Information to Submitters

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 (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 2023 website), containing all relevant information for participants.

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:
    • Potential committee members
    • A draft of the relevant call (including expected dates such as submission deadline, notification, etc.)
  7. Estimated number of attendees total and an expected number of student attendees
  8. A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience
  9. Funding sources that may be used (and for what purposes)
  10. Information of previous similar events (incl. organizational information such as attendance number), if applicable
  11. Link to draft website (if exists)

A file (preferably in PDF format) containing all the above information should be sent to eurocrypt2023workshops@iacr.org by Friday, September 30, 11:59pm anywhere on earth (AOE).

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.

Second Call for Affiliated Events

In the case there remain conference rooms available after the first call, a second call for affiliated events is planned in December, with submission deadline on December 2 and notification on December 16.
