Conference Call for Papers

Eurocrypt 2022, the 41st Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptology and Information Security, will take place in Trondheim, Norway. The conference is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Original research papers are welcomed on any cryptographic topic, including but not limited to:

foundational theory and mathematics
the design, proposal, and analysis of cryptographic primitives and protocols
secure implementation and optimization in hardware or software
applied aspects of cryptography

If your research fits any of the IACR’s area conferences or symposium: CHES, FSE, PKC, RWC, or TCC, then your contribution fits the scope of Eurocrypt.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 2.70% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 26.39% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 22.22% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 38.89% of all publications and 12.50% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),

Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),

Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),

Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),

Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
