Conference begins

The Theory of Cryptography Conference is dedicated to providing a premier venue for the dissemination of results within its scope. The conference aims to provide a meeting place for researchers and to be instrumental in shaping the identity of the theoretical cryptography community. With these goals in mind, TCC 2024 is planned to be an in-person meeting. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to present the paper in person at the conference.


Proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) with Springer. The online version will be available to all conference attendees. Physical books will be available after the conference for a separate fee. Instructions for preparing the final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. The final copies of the accepted papers will be due on the final version deadline listed. This is a strict deadline, and authors should prepare accordingly.

Best Young Researcher Paper Award

This prize is for the best paper authored solely by young researchers, where a young researcher is a person that at the time of the paper's submission is at most two years past his/her graduation from a PhD program. Eligibility must be indicated at the time of submission (using a checkbox in the submission form). The program committee may decline to make the award, or may split it among several papers.
