The 9th International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness, and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre) will take place next May 17-18, in Darmstadt, Germany.

The CrossFyre Workshop brings together young researchers in the field of Cryptography and Information Security to help them to promote their research. An additional aim is to raise awareness among participants on gender-equality, to present the outcome of relevant social studies on the topic, and to discuss possible measures for improving the current situation.

Invited Speakers:

  • Elette Boyle, IDC Herzliya, Israel
  • Bianca Prietl, TU Darmstadt
  • Oded Goldreich, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

The workshop will be co-located with Eurocrypt 2019 and every CrossFyre participant can attend all other workshops of Eurocrypt.
