As your IACR board member, I will (1) foster fruitful relations among our theoretical & practica

ont- and back-end), and (3) further develop the open and international dissemination of our resu
lts and code.
- Josh Benaloh
I have had the privilege of serving on the IACR Board for 17 years - as an officer, a conference chair, and a director. We have grown and addressed many challenges in those years, and we have many new challenges today. I seek the opportunity to continue working for the community.
- Moti Yung
I like to continue supporting IACR's growth and increased excellence, to assure the special needs of individuals and all sub-communities (e.g., CHES, TCC). We need diversity of opinions, geographies, genders, and scientific areas, to assure continued success. Serving last term was a pleasure mixed with modest progress!
