The aim of PQCrypto is to serve as a forum for researchers to present results and exchange ideas on 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, postquantum cryptosystems.
  • Security models for the post-quantum era.

Instructions to authors.

Please submit your paper to EasyChair.

Accepted papers are planned to be published in Springer's LNCS series. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages, excluding references and appendices in a single column format in 10pt fonts using the default llncs class without adjustments.
If the submission is accepted, the length of the final version will be at most 20 pages including 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, and 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.
