9th International Conference on Quantum Cryptography

26–30 August 2019

QCrypt 2019, the 9th International Conference on Quantum Cryptography, is now accepting submissions for talks and posters at 
 

 

Call for contributed talks and posters

The annual conference on quantum cryptography (QCrypt) solicits submissions for contributed talks and posters.
QCrypt 2019 will take place at UQAM Coeur des Sciences Conference Center, Montreal, Canada, 26–30 August 2019. It will be organized by McGill UniversityTourisme MontréalUniversité de Montréal (UdeM), and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
 
KEY DATES
All deadlines are at midnight (in any timezone).
* Talk submission deadline: 10th April 2019
* Talk acceptance notification: 7th June 2019
* Poster submission deadline: 16th June 2019
* Poster acceptance notification: 28th June 2019
* QCrypt conference: 26th-30th August 2019
 

GOAL OF THE CONFERENCE

QCrypt is a conference for students and researchers working on all aspects of quantum cryptography. This includes theoretical and experimental research on the possibilities and limitations of secure communication and computation with quantum devices, how security can be preserved in the presence of a quantum computer, and how to achieve long distance quantum communication.
It is the goal of the conference to represent the previous years best results on quantum cryptography, and to support the building of a research community.
 

CONTRIBUTED TALKS AND POSTERS

QCrypt solicits submissions of extended abstracts describing recent research results in quantum cryptography. These will be reviewed by the program committee, which will select a small number of contributed talks, and a larger number of poster presentations. The selection will be based on scientific merit of the submissions, keeping in mind the desire to create an attractive and balanced program. A small number of submissions may be upgraded to invited talks at the discretion of the PC chair and of the steering committee.
In line with the goal of showcasing the best results each year from all subfields, the conference has no published proceedings. Yet, contributed talks are highly competitive. QCrypt welcomes the submission of any interesting and important result, while allowing researchers from a wide range of disciplines to pursue publication in any venue appropriate to their field.
 

STUDENT PAPER PRIZE

Since 2011, QCrypt features a prize for the best student submission. A submission is eligible for the student prize if and only if the main author(s) is/are a student(s) at the time of the submission, will present the work at QCrypt, and further a significant portion of the work must have been done by said student(s), including contributions to the key ideas.
 

PROGRAM COMMITTEE

Program committee list can be found here (if the link doesn’t work, visit http://2019.qcrypt.net/committees/ directly).
 

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

An extended abstract should be 2-3 pages in A4 or letter size PDF, using reasonable margins and at least 11pt font. It should give a non-technical, clear and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their impact, and their importance to quantum cryptography.
 
Poster only submissions will be accepted after the notification for talks (7th June). For these submissions,  a one-page non-technical PDF is sufficient as the extended abstract.
 
The extended abstract may refer to technical details which are presented elsewhere. In particular, authors may include citations to a full version of the paper that is either published, available on arXiv.org or provided as an attachment (links to full versions on personal webpages are not accepted). This is strongly recommended for theory submissions to help the peer-review process. The extended abstract should not be a compressed version of the full-length paper.
 
Extended abstracts should be submitted electronically here using the EasyChair system (if the link doesn’t work, visit https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qcrypt2019 directly).
