Student Speakers

Thanks to the IACR Cryptography Research Fund, students who present their accepted paper at PKC 2019 do not have to pay the registration fee. To apply for this fund, send the general chair an email, and when registering, do not pay any amount.

Student Stipends

Stipends are also available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Since the number of stipends is limited, the preference will be given to students that are unable to obtain funding from other sources. Therefore the applicants are encouraged to provide an explanation why they cannot use their local funding, such as the grants of their supervisors. Further, ask your supervisor to send an email to the general chair confirming that: (1) you are a student engaged in cryptography research and (2) there is not sufficient funding in your home institution to participate in the conference. The value of a stipend will not be more than the lowest available cost of the accommodations in Beijing Friendship Hotel during the conference. In ideal circumstances your home institution will pay some of the cost of your trip and we will attempt to pay the remaining cost. Please contact the General Chair ( before March 15, 2019. Decisions will be made soon after that date. The money will be not given to students but pay to the hotel directly.

Participant Stipends

We get some funds which allow us to waive/reduce the registration fee to support some participants who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference. To apply for a stipend please send an email to the general chair ( explaining your situation before the registration, and no later than March 15, 2019.
