RWC 2021

Jan 11-13 2021

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Call for Affiliated Events

IACR is soliciting for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with RWC 2021. 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

Affiliated events should be scheduled right before or right after RWC and should ideally be held in or close to Amsterdam. The dates of affiliated events must not overlap with the dates of RWC. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the affiliated-events chair Veelasha Moonsamy by Nov 1st 2020 at the latest.

As RWC is a lighttouch organized event, each affiliated event is responsible for organizing its own:

The RWC organizers will however provide web publicity for your event and promote it to the RWC attendees.

Information to Submitters

The proposal submitters need to identify a topic and decide on the format, and upon acceptance coordinate the program/speakers.

Costs (for example, costs of the program, reimbursements to invited speakers, room bookings, internet, teas/coffees, or printing proceedings) fall into 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 RWC 2021 website), containing all relevant information for participants.

  1. Name (and possible acronym) of the event
  2. Names and contact information of the organizers
  3. Which date
  4. Which location have you booked
  5. A proposed format (workshop with submitted/invited talks, tutorial, panel, etc.) and potential speakers (if applicable, not complete, and no commitment)
  6. Abstract summarizing the proposed event and its justification
  7. In the case of a submission process:
  8. Estimated number of attendees total and an expected number of student attendees
