PKC 2021

May 10-13 2021

Virtual Event

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the PKC Steering Committee and the IACR Board of Directors have decided that PKC 2021 will take place as a virtual event.

This is the 24th edition of the International Conference on Practice and Theory of Public-Key Cryptography, the main annual conference with an explicit focus on public-key cryptography, sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Original research papers on all aspects of public-key cryptography, covering theory, implementations and applications, are solicited for submission to PKC 2021. Given NIST's efforts on standardization of post-quantum cryptography (PQC), this year PQC constructions and cryptanalysis will receive special attention. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
