Eurocrypt 2012 was held in Cambridge, UK, from April 15th to April 19th. The meeting was held in the UK to coincide with the 100th anniversary year of the birth of Alan Turing.

The Program co-Chairs were David Pointcheval and Thomas Johansson. The Eurocrypt 2012 Program Committee (PC) consisted of 32 members. There were 195 papers submitted to the conference. The PC eventually selected 41 submissions for presentation during the conference. The PC decided to give the Best Paper Award to Antoine Joux and Vanessa Vitse for their paper “Cover and Decomposition Index Calculus on Elliptic Curves made practical. Application to a previously unreachable curve over Fp6 .” The conference program also included two invited lectures: one by Antoine Joux entitled “A Tutorial on High-Performance Computing Applied to Cryptanalysis,” and the other by Alfred Menezes on “Another Look at Provable Security.”

The conference programme was augmented by a trip to Bletchley Park on Thursday afternoon, with the traditional free Tuesday afternoon being dispensed with. Attendance at Eurocrypt 2012 was quite high, with 412 registered attendees, up from 300 at Eurocrypt 2010.

The conference was supported by donations from BAE Systems/Detica, CESG, Cryptomathic, Good Technologies, Microsoft Research, Qualcomm, RIM, Trend Micro, Visa International and Voltage. The generous donations allowed the organizers to sponsor the attendance of around 60 young researchers.

A total of 31 research papers, categorized into 11 sessions, were presented, selected from 167 submissions. Ronald Cramer, CWI, and Phong Nguyen from IBM Research delivered the invited lectures on the topics "The Arithmetic Codex: Theory and Applications" and "Lattice Reduction Algorithms: Theory and Practice", respectively.

The Rump Session was chaired by Nigel Smart who was helped by men in shining armor.

The conference banquet was held at the Art Museum of Estonia. The best paper award was also presented during the banquet to Eike Kiltz, Krzysztof Pietrzak, David Cash, Abhishek Jain and Daniele Venturi for their paper "Efficient Authentication from Hard Learning Problems".
