Eurocrypt 2025

May 4-8, 2025

Madrid, Spain

Call for Affiliated Events

IACR is soliciting proposals for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with Eurocrypt 2025, on Saturday, May 3, and/or Sunday, May 4 in Madrid. Each such event is expected to provide a forum discussing a specific topic of the broad cryptographic world (theory, practice, implementation, standardization, etc.). The format of the event (e.g., workshop, tutorial, etc.) is up to the organizers.

Information to Submitters

Organizing an affiliated event should be relatively simple. All registration and local organization is handled by the IACR (through the General and Workshop Chairs). Proposers need to identify a topic, decide on the format and, if accepted, coordinate the programme/speakers according to the general schedule guidelines provided by the local organizers.

For each event, the local organizers will provide:

  • Conference room with a projector
  • Lunch and coffee breaks
  • Internet access
  • Registration services (registration desk, nametags, etc.)

Important Dates

Sep 4, 2024

Submission deadline for affiliated event proposals at 11:59pm Anywhere on Earth (AoE)

Sep 20, 2024

Notification of decision

The registration fee for attendees of affiliated events will be charged via the registration process and will cover the incurred costs for the location, catering and equipment. Being registered for a given day of workshops enables a participant to attend this workshop, and, if space allows it, any other workshop of that particular day.

Any additional costs (e.g. programme costs, reimbursement of invited speakers or printing of proceedings) are the responsibility of the individual workshop organizers.

The organizers of accepted events are expected to maintain an updated website (which will be linked from the Eurocrypt 2025 website) containing all relevant information for participants. In addition, while the local organization will provide all technical equipment (laptops, projector, etc. ) and basic technical support, workshop organizers will be responsible for all in room arrangements (e.g. collecting and projecting slides).

Submission Format for Affiliated Event Proposals

Proposals for affiliated events should be submitted by sending a document (in pdf) to eurocrypt2025workshops at by the submission deadline, September 4 (AoE) including the following information (in this order):

  1. Name (and possible acronym) of the event
  2. Names and contact information of the organizers. Include the names of at least two contact people that will be present during the workshop.
  3. Length of event (1-2 days); if 1 day, indicate flexibility for dates

  11. Link to draft website (if exists)

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.
