RWC 2023

March 27-29 2023

Tokyo, Japan

Co-located Events

We are soliciting proposals for co-located events to be held in conjunction with RWC 2023. 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.

Call for Co-Located Events

Co-located events should be scheduled right before or right after RWC and should ideally be held in or close to Tokyo. The dates of co-located events must not overlap with the dates of RWC. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the RWC 2023 General chair by Feb 1st 2023 at the latest.

As RWC is a lighttouch organized event, each co-located 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 organizers of co-located events.

The organizers of the accepted co-located events are expected to maintain an updated website (which will be linked from the RWC 2023 website), containing all relevant information for participants.

Proposals for co-located 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
