Crypto 2022

August 13-18 2022

Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Affiliated Events

IACR is soliciting for affiliated events to be held in conjunction with Crypto 2022 on Saturday, August 13, and/or Sunday, August 14. 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 Affiliated Events

Affiliated events will each be a half-day long. Proposals for events should be submitted by email to the workshop chair Carmit Hazay at crypto2022workshopschair@gmail.com by March 31, 2022. Proposals can be for fully in-person or hybrid workshops.

Information to Submitters

The organization of an affiliated event is supposed to be relatively easy. The registration process as well as the local organization is done by the IACR (via the general and workshop chairs). The proposal submitters need to identify a topic and decide on the format, and upon acceptance coordinate the program/speakers.

The registration fee for attendees of affiliated events will be charged via the registration process and will cover the incurred costs for the location and equipment. Being registered for a given day of workshop enables a participant to attend any of the workshops of that particular day.

Any additional costs (e.g. costs of the program, reimbursements to invited speakers, or printing proceedings) are 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 Crypto 2022 website), containing all relevant information for participants.

Submission Format for Affiliated Event Proposals

Proposals for affiliated 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
  3. An indication of any date or time constraints within the August 13-14 timeframe
  4. A proposed format (workshop with submitted/invited talks, tutorial, panel, etc.) and potential speakers (if applicable, not complete, and no commitment)
  5. Abstract summarizing the proposed event and its justification
  6. In the case of a submission process:
    • Potential committee members
    • A draft of the relevant call (including expected dates such as submission deadline, notification, etc.)
  7. A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience
  8. Funding sources that may be used (and for what purposes)
  9. Information of previous similar events (incl. organizational information such as attendance number), if applicable
  10. Link to draft website (if exists)

A file (preferably in PDF format) containing all the above information should be sent to Carmit Hazay at crypto2022workshopschair@gmail.com by the submission deadline.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

Given the limited amount of conference rooms available, events will be selected based on their novelty, importance, and interest that they may have in the cryptographic community. The agreement of leading members of the cryptographic community to engage with the event (as speakers or committee members) will be taken into account.
