General Information

Asiacrypt 2020, the 26th Annual International Conference on the Theory and Application of Cryptology and Information Security, will take place virtually on December 7-11 2020. The conference is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).


Asiacrypt 2020 will operate a two-round review system with rebuttal phase. In the first round, the program committee selects the submissions which are considered of value for proceeding to the second round, and the authors receive the first round notification with review comments. The authors of the selected submissions are invited to submit a text-based rebuttal letter to the review comments. In the second round the program committee further reviews the selected submissions by taking into account their rebuttal letter, and makes the final decision of acceptance or rejection. The submissions that have not been selected during the first round of reviews may be submitted in other conferences after the first round notification date.
