be elected in the 2016 election.
The candidates are as follows
- Christian Cachin
I have served the IACR since 1998 as Webmaster, creator of the Cryptology
ePrint Archive, conference chair, Director, Vice President, and President.
IACR should continue to lead research in cryptology, promote scientific
work in this exciting field, further evolve its publication model, and
continue to provide valuable services for its members.

I have served the IACR as Crypto General Chair in 2003, and treasurer for the last six years. I would like to
continue to serve, guiding the IACR to a brighter future.
- Brian LaMacchia
As General Chair of Crypto 2016 I have served on the Board of Directors for the past two years and I would like to continue contributing to the organization as its next Treasurer. My goal is to help the IACR grow and to manage its resources in a fiscally-responsible manner.
- Jacob Schuldt
I believe the IACR should be as open and transparent as possible, especially considering the central role the IACR plays in our community. As secretary, I will support this by communicating the deliberations and decisions by the board to the IACR members in a clear and timely manner.
- Joppe Bos
When elected as secretary I would strive to deliver the minutes of the Board of Directors in an open and clear
manner. I would try to get the younger IACR members more involved to advance the field of cryptology and get their
voice heard in our community.
In addition the following candidates for three IACR Director positions are listed in a randomly selected order.
- Alexandra (Sasha) Boldyreva
I've been an IACR member since 1999, and I served as General Chair of Crypto 2014. I currently serve as the ePrint co-editor and on the IACR Cryptology School committee. I love my research community and want to continue helping it promote quality research and the diversity of its members.
- Bart Preneel
I have served the IACR since 1997 as director, vice-president and president. I would like to contribute my experience to further develop the IACR, with as key points maintaining scientific quality, open availability of scientific results, supporting students and exploring how our publications and events can be gradually improved.
- Shai Halevi
As a director of the IACR, I will strive to ensure that we
maintain our vibrant research culture and high quality publications, even as we explore new models for our venues and publications. I will also work to enhance the services that the IACR offers to the cryptology research
- Svetla Nikova
I've been an IACR member since 2000, have served in PCs of IACR conferences and was General Chair of Eurocrypt 2015. I'm currently serving in the IACR Cryptology School Committee. I will work hard to actively promote research in cryptography, to support open access publication models and diversity.
- Martijn Stam
The IACR is a relatively stable organization, yet the field of
cryptology has grown tremendously since its inception over 30 years ago.
If elected, I would endeavour both to promote the internal
cohesion of our community and to reach out to other crypto-minded
people currently operating outside the IACR's umbrella.

helping the IACR to promote high-quality research and support
relations with security and applied cryptography communities.
- Tancrède Lepoint
As your IACR board member, there are three initiatives that I will undertake. (1) help modernize the online services that IACR provides (font- and back-end); (2) foster fruitful relations among our theoretical & practical researchers, industry & standards; (3) further develop the open and international dissemination of our results.
- Francois-Xavier Standaert
I enjoyed being active as an IACR attendee, author, PC member and PC chair for more than
15 years, with a particular interest for the inter-disciplinary exchanges our community
allows. I am committed to help maintaining the association's high quality standards, and
to further promote collaboration between our different subfields.

I have been a member of the IACR for about 15 years. The work of the Association has brought many benefits to its members and to science and engineering. I would like to contribute my energy and experience to the IACR and the community by serving as a Director.
