Affiliated Event: MathCrypt 2018 (August 19)

MathCrypt aims to provide a forum for exchanging ideas on new mathematical assumptions and attacks in cryptography, and, to encourage and attract new researchers to work in the area of mathematical cryptography. Its scope includes, but is not limited to:

  • Introducing new assumptions which can be used to construct or improve cryptographic schemes.
  • Proposing new attacks on cryptographic assumptions.
  • Implementation improvements for cryptographic schemes and attacks. Potential Participants: Mathematicians, Cryptographers, Theorists, Implementers


  • Jintai Ding (University of Cincinnati)
  • Jung Hee Cheon (Seoul National University)
  • Kristin Lauter (Microsoft Research)

Paper submissions

  • Camera ready form(Journal version) due: September 1st, 2018.
