The 27th International Cryptology Conference brings together researchers and practitioners of all forms of cryptology.
Organizers have solicited original research papers on the technical aspects of encryption, cryptography, decryption, and other aspects of cryptology, including software schemes and other computer-based approaches. Conference events include invited talks, refereed papers, and birds-of-a-feather sessions. An informal "rump session" features short, entertaining presentations in an informal atmosphere.
Crypto 2007 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy in cooperation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research and the Computer Science Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Crypto 2007 will take place in Santa Barbara, California, from 19–23 August.
