We’re Heading to PQCrypto 2018

Introduction

The aim of PQCrypto is to serve as a forum for researchers to present results and exchange ideas on the topic of cryptography in an era with large-scale quantum computers.

After eight successful PQCrypto conferences ( 2006 in Leuven, 2008 in Cincinnati,  2010 in Darmstadt, 2011 in Taipei, 2013 in Limoges, 2014 in Waterloo, 2016 in Fukuoka, and 2017 in Utrecht, the Netherlands), PQCrypto 2018 will take place April 9-11, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Important Dates

Initial submission deadline: November 18, 2017 (UTC-11:00).
Papers submitted by this deadline may be in draft form but must include a title and an abstract.
Final submission deadline: November 25, 2017 (UTC-11:00).
Authors who submitted a paper by the November 18th, 2017 deadline will be permitted to revise their papers any time before the final submission deadline.
Notification about acceptance: January 10, 2018.
Final version of accepted papers: January 24, 2018
Conference: April 9-11, 2018.

PQCrypto 2018 is co-located with NIST’s
First PQC Standardization Conference (April 11-13, 2018).

Call for Papers

Call for papers in pdf format

Original research papers on all technical aspects of cryptographic research related to post-quantum cryptography are solicited. The topics include (but are not restricted to):

  • Cryptosystems that have the potential to be safe against quantum computers such as: code-based cryptosystems, hash-based signature schemes, isogeny-based cryptosystems, lattice-based cryptosystems, and multivariate cryptosystems.
  • Cryptanalysis of post-quantum systems, and quantum cryptanalysis.
  • Implementations of, and side-channel attacks on, post-quantum cryptosystems.
  • Security models for the post-quantum era.
