By becoming an IACR Board member, I would like to give back more to this community that has nurtured and supported my research over the past twenty years. I would support the current trend of promoting more opportunity for the members to get involved in the IACR events.
I am honored to have served on the IACR Board for fourteen years in capacities including Officer, Director, and General Chair. Much has changed in that time, but there is still much work to be done such as ensuring effective implementation of parallel sessions and achieving gold open access to publications.
I have been serving on program committees of IACR conferences since 2002, and l was PC co-chair of EUROCRYPT 2013-14 and PKC 2010. I would like to promote scientific excellence, open-access publishing and diversity. I have worked in Europe. America, and Asia.
I spent the last year on the Board. There are numerous important decisions to be completed, related to the basic nature of IACR, its workshops (all areas) and conferences. I wish to continue contributing my experience in science, technology, and IACR itself at this crucial moment in IACR's history.
