COVID Update Our plan is for RWC 2021 to take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on Jan 11-13 2021. If this turns out to be impossible due to re-introduced lockdown we will hold an online event, and then go to Amsterdam in 2022.
There is of course a possiblity that Amsterdam will be COVID free in that period, but other areas of the world will not. Thus some attendees (and speakers) may be unable to attend in person. As usual we will live-stream the event for people unable to attend in person. If a speaker is unable to attend in person we will attempt to have the speaker present remotely.
Clearly the main benefit of RWC is that people come together to discuss issues during breaks, are able to interact in person with the speakers, and are able to forge new collaborations. Thus we hope as many people as possible will be able to come in person.
Thus RWC 2021 will go ahead in some form or another.
RWC 2021 is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
