The RWC series of events was initiated by Kenny Paterson and Nigel Smart in 2012, as part of a celebration at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing. At that point the rather less punchy title was Is Cryptographic Theory Practically Relevant?. The event was an amazing success and within a week we had been contacted about organizing a follow up event; and so Real World Cryptography was born.
