7th Code-Based Cryptography Workshop

Darmstadt, Germany, May 18-19, 2019

The 7th Code-Based Cryptography Workshop (CBC 2019) will be held in conjunction with Eurocrypt 2019 in Darmstadt, Germany on Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19, 2019.

Code-based cryptography is the area of research that focuses on the study of cryptosystems based on error-correcting codes, following the seminal work of McEliece and Niederreiter in the late 1970s - early 1980s. These systems have shown no vulnerabilities to quantum attackers and the relevant research branch is widely regarded as one of the most promising in the so-called area of Post-Quantum Cryptography. Current efforts in code-based cryptography are directed at producing fast, secure and efficient schemes. Research in this area has also been fostered by the recent NIST's Post-Quantum Standardization call.

The goal of this two-day workshop is to bring together the community to discuss recent developments, as well as introduce the field to anyone interested in discovering more about this research area. The program includes invited talks, contributed talks and dedicated discussion sessions.
