EuroCrypt 2012

eurocrypt 2012

Now in its 31st year, Eurocrypt 2012 will take place in Cambridge, United Kingdom, from April 15 to April 19. Devoted to all aspects of cryptology, Eurocrypt is one of the three flagship conferences organised by the IACR.

It is especially apt that Eurocrypt 2012 is held in Cambridge as this year marks the 100th anniverary of the birth of Alan Turing. Eurocrypt 2012 is forming part of the celebrations of Alan Turing Year.

In addition to Eurocrypt 2012, Cambridge is hosting a six month program at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences devoted to recent work inspired by the work of Alan Turing. This program features a significant cryptologic component.
