06:27 [Conf] Report on Theory of Cryptography Conference 2011 (TCC), March 28-30, 2011, Providence, RI, USA

  TCC 2011 took place from March 28 to March 30, 2011, at Brown University, Providence, RI, USA. The general chair was Anna Lysyanskaya and the program chair was Yuval Ishai. This was the eighth edition of TCC.

There were 110 registered participants; 50 of them were students. Most of the participants stayed in hotels in downtown Providence; a block of rooms was arranged for TCC at the Hampton Inn and at the Biltmore. Although the conference venue was only a 20-minute walk from the hotels, the conference provided a shuttle to and from the venue that made several roundtrips in the morning and then several more after the talks ended.

The full registration amount was $272, while the student rate was $136. The IACR membership fee was an additional $70 full and $35 student, but it only applied to those participants who had not attended another IACR meeting this year. Each participant received a copy of the proceedings.

The program consisted of 35 papers, selected from 108 submissions; two invited talks, by Luca Trevisan and Rafael Pass; and the rump session, chaired by Tal Malkin.
