Looking back at 2018 Applied Crypto Symposium


Call for

Are you an industry expert with knowledge to share? Submit your presentation proposal today to share your insights and expertise with a dedicated community of peers alongside industry experts like Brian LaMacchia (Microsoft) and Michele Mosca (Institute for Quantum Computing) at our Applied Crypto Symposium. Submissions are welcome on topics related to post-quantum cryptography. More specifically, we are interested to hear about the implementation of the new algorithms, PQC roadmap, as well as opportunities, challenges, research, solutions, and innovations associated with PQC. The event is a forum to exchange information and encourage dialogue so we welcome any content that facilitates that.

Please submit your 400-word presentation outline no later than Friday, November 15th to be considered.

Get recognition from industry professionals and take advantage of networking opportunities with other data cybersecurity practitioners, thought leaders and industry authorities. We look forward to reviewing your submissions!
