The 22nd Annual International Cryptology Conference

Crypto 2002 is the 22nd international conference on cryptology held at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The academic program covers all aspects of cryptology. The preliminary program shows the schedule of technical presentations, invited talks, and social events. Formal proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag, will be provided to all registered attendees at the conference.

Crypto 2002 is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, and the Computer Science Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The Program Chair is Moti Yung , and the General Chair is Rebecca Wright.

In addition to selected and invited papers, there will be a Rump Session on Tuesday evening for selected informal presentations. Facilities are available for attendees to demonstrate hardware, software, and other items of cryptologic interest. If you are interested, please contact the General Chair by July 1.

The social program will include a catered reception on Sunday evening during registration, dinner receptions on Monday and Tuesday evenings, and a beach barbecue on Wednesday evening. Breakfasts and lunches will be served at the university dining hall.

For packing purposes please note the following:
  • We are working to provide a wireless Internet connection for use by conference attendees at Campbell Hall. To use it, you'll need a laptop with an 802.11b wireless LAN card.
  • We hope to have an informal softball game on Tuesday afternoon, suitable for all levels. If you are interested, bring your glove. Contact Josh Benaloh at secretary(at) for details. (We will also have the usual informal soccer game.)
  • The conference gift this year will be a light jacket rather than a T-shirt. Complain if you must, but don't say you weren't warned.
