CrossFyre 2018: The 8th international workshop on cryptography, robustness, and provably secure schemes for female young researchers
CrossFyre aims to bring together female researchers in cyber security (e.g., in cryptography, information security, safety, but not only), to promote their research topics and help develop the careers of women in science and engineering. Thus, CrossFyre’s main cohort is generally formed of female early-career researchers (ECRs), as well as female undergraduate students interested in or working in cybersecurity.
The workshop will be held in the Tree Tops room of the Wates House at the University of Surrey on the Stag Hill campus. The location of the workshop is marked with number 34, on grid D2 of this University campus map (PDF).
