PQCrypto 2019

The Tenth International Conference on Post-Quantum Cryptography

Chongqing University, Chongqing, May 8-10, 2019


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.

After nine successful PQCrypto conferences (2006 in Leuven, 2008 in Cincinnati, 2010 in Darmstadt, 2011 in Taipei, 2013 in Limoges, 2014 in Waterloo, 2016 in Fukuoka, 2017 in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida), PQCrypto 2019 will take place May 8-10, 2019 in Chongqing, China.

Call for papers

Call for papers in pdf format

Original research papers on all technical aspects of cryptographic research related to post-quantum cryptography are solicited. The topics include (but are not restricted to):

1.Cryptosystems that have the potential to be safe against quantum computers such as: code-based, hash-based, isogeny-based, lattice-based, and multivariate constructions.

2.Implementations of, and side-channel attacks on, post-quantum cryptosystems.

3.Security models for the post-quantum era.
