The 22nd Workshop on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC 2018) will be held in Osaka, Japan in November 2018. It will be co-organized by Osaka University, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan (IPA), and CREST(JPMJCR1404) at Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

ECC is an annual workshop dedicated to the study of elliptic curve cryptography and related areas. Since the first ECC workshop, held 1997 in Waterloo, the ECC conference series has broadened its scope beyond elliptic curve cryptography and now covers a wide range of areas within modern cryptography. For instance, past ECC conferences included presentations on hyperelliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based cryptography, side-channel attacks, voting protocols, quantum key distribution, AES, hash functions, and implementation issues. This is the first time for ECC to be held in East Asia.

Presentations tend to give an overview on emerging or established areas of modern cryptography, often combined with new research findings.

Workshop Organization:

Workshop Venue:

Osaka is the second largest area in Japan. Osaka is known as historical merchant city and used to be called “the nation's kitchen." Moreover, Osaka is close to Kyoto and Nara (Japanese old capitals) and Kobe (popular port town). The workshop venue is Osaka University Suita Campus.

Travel Information:

The workshop venue is located approximately 17 kilometers north of Osaka Station. The nearest station is Handai-Byoin-Mae station of Osaka Monorail, from which it will take about 5–15 minutes on foot.
