Project: Research Project

Project Details


Latincrypt is a crypto conference that seeks to promote cryptography in Latin America. There are: Eurocrypt, Asiacrypt, Africacrypt and crypto in USA. This time we would celebrate the 7th edition and additionally commemorate 10 years since its first version and has the support of the International Organization of Cryptography (IACR). Previously it has been held in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Cuba and Mexico. On average, 100 international researchers participate in this conference, where approximately 20 papers are presented. These papers are rigorously selected by a committee of more than 20 researchers from about 150 papers that are submitted to the conference. In 2020, Universidad del Rosario is honored to have been invited to organize Latincrypt 2020 in Bogota. Additionally, the two days prior to the conference, the ASCrypto summer course is held to prepare new students in the area so that they can take advantage of the conference and generate community.
