Call for Papers

General Information

Asiacrypt 2021, the 27th Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptology and Information Security, will take place in Virtual on December 6-10, 2021. The conference is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Original research papers on all aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.


Asiacrypt 2021 will operate a two-round review system with rebuttal phase. In the first round, the program committee selects a subset of submissions for further consideration in 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.

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.

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.
