Call for Workshop Proposals

2nd EAI International Conference on Applied Cryptography in Computer and Communications (AC3 2022) invites proposals for co-located workshops.
AC3 2022 will be held in Nanjing, China, during May 14-15, 2022.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic relevant to applied cryptography. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a venue for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and typically more focused area than the main conference. Accepted workshop papers are included in the adjunct proceedings of the AC3 Conference.

Workshop proposals are expected to include the following information:

  • Title (and acronym) of the workshop
  • Workshop organizers (names, affiliations, short bios and contact information)
  • Technical descriptions of the issues covered
  • Names of prospective program committee members and invited speakers (if possible, indicate whether the speakers have accepted the invitation or not)
  • Expected duration (full or half day)
  • Expected number of participants
  • Planned format of the workshop, e.g.
    • keynotes, panels (and panel formats) etc.
  • Draft call for papers
