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.
