CrossFyre 2021

2021 | Zagreb - Croatia
co-located with EUROCRYPT 2021


The 10th International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness, and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre) is co-located with Eurocrypt 2021, in Zagreb, Croatia.

This 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.

CrossFyre has been organized annually from 2011 to 2019. CrossFyre 2020 has been unfortunately postponed to 2021 due to the spreading of SARS-CoV-2 virus. For more details about the previous events, see here.


We encourage everyone to join the event regardless of their gender. CrossFyre targets mainly Master's students, PhD candidates and Postdocs. We welcome undergraduate students to this workshop as well, and strongly encourage supervisors to support their students participation.

If you would like to attend the workshop, please register on Eurocrypt 2021 website.
