OUR GOAL

The 10th International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness, and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre) is co-located with Eurocrypt 2020, in Zagreb, Croatia. It will take place on May 10, 2020.

This workshop brings together young researchers in the field of Cryptography and Information Security to help them to promote their research. An additional aim is to raise awareness among participants on gender-equality, to present the outcome of relevant social studies on the topic, and to discuss possible measures for improving the current situation.

CrossFyre has been organized annually since 2011. For more details about the previous events, see here.
