The aim of PQCrypto is to serve as a forum for researchers to present results and exchange ideas on the topic of cryptography in an era with large-scale quantum computers.
Original research papers on all technical aspects of cryptographic research related to post-quantum cryptography are solicited. Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
- Cryptanalysis of post-quantum systems, and quantum cryptanalysis.
- Cryptosystems that have the potential to be safe against quantum computers such as: code-based, hash-based, isogeny-based, lattice-based, and multivariate constructions.
- Implementations of, and side-channel attacks on post-quantum cryptosystems.
- Security models for the post-quantum era.
After fourteen successful PQCrypto conferences (2006 in Leuven, 2008 in Cincinnati, 2010 in Darmstadt, 2011 in Taipei, 2013 in Limoges, 2014 in Waterloo, 2016 in Fukuoka, 2017in Utrecht, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, 2019 in Chongqing, 2020 in Paris (online), 2021 in Daejeon (hybrid), 2022 (online), in Maryland 2023), we are looking forward to PQCrypto 2024.
The conference will take place at the University of Oxford, Mathematical Institute. The dates are June 12–14, 2024.
Instructions to authors
Accepted papers are planned to be published in Springer’s LNCS series. Submissions must not exceed 30 pages, including appendices and excluding references, and must be in a single column format in 10pt fonts using the default llncs class without adjustments. Reviewers are not required to read appendices, and submissions are expected to be intelligible and complete without them.
If the submission is accepted, the length of the final version is at most 35 pages including both references and appendices, in the llncs class format. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. The submission should begin with a title, the authors’ names and affiliations, a short abstract, and a list of key words. Its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Submissions ignoring these guidelines may be rejected without further consideration.
