IACR News item: 09 May 2020

CRYPTO 2020 is the 40th Annual International Cryptology Conference and one of the three general conferences of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). It was originally scheduled to take place on the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), August 16-20. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UCSB has cancelled all summer 2020 conferences.

As a result, CRYPTO 2020 has been converted into an all-digital event with slightly changed dates. It is now scheduled to take place online Monday-Friday, August 17-21. The conference proceedings will be published according to the original schedule.

Details about the new all-digital event, including its scientific program and registration process, will be communicated at a later time via the usual IACR channels and the conference website.

The board wishes safety and health to all our members during these challenging times.
