Hi everyone,


QCrypt 2018, the 8th International Conference on Quantum Cryptography, is
now accepting submissions for talks and posters at



Call for contributed talks and posters

The annual conference on quantum cryptography (QCrypt) solicits submissions
for contributed talks and posters.

QCrypt 2018 will be held in Shanghai, China 27th-31st August 2018. It will
be organized by University of Science and Technology of China.



All deadlines are at midnight (in any timezone).

* Talk submission deadline: 17th April 2018

* Talk acceptance notification: 9th June 2018

* Poster submission deadline: 17th June 2018

* Poster acceptance notification: 30th June 2018

* Conference early registration deadline: 15th July 2018

* QCrypt conference: 27th-31st August 2018



QCrypt is a conference for students and researchers working on all aspects
of quantum cryptography. This includes theoretical and experimental research
on the possibilities and limitations of secure communication and computation
with quantum devices, how security can be preserved in the presence of a
quantum computer, and how to achieve long distance quantum communication.

It is the goal of the conference to represent the previous year's best
results on quantum cryptography, and to support the building of a research



QCrypt solicits submissions of extended abstracts describing recent research
results in quantum cryptography. These will be reviewed by the program
committee, which will select a small number of contributed talks, and a
larger number of poster presentations. The selection will be based on
scientific merit of the submissions, keeping in mind the desire to create an
attractive and balanced program. A small number of submissions may be
upgraded to invited talks at the discretion of the PC chair and of the
steering committee.

In line with the goal of showcasing the best results each year from all
subfields, the conference has no published proceedings. Yet, contributed
talks are highly competitive. QCrypt welcomes the submission of any
interesting and important result, while allowing researchers from a wide
range of disciplines to pursue publication in any venue appropriate to their



Since 2011, QCrypt features a prize for the best student submission. A
submission is eligible for the student prize if and only if the main
author(s) is/are a student(s) at the time of the submission, will present
the work at QCrypt, and further a significant portion of the work must have
been done by said student(s), including contributions to the key ideas.



Program committee list can be found via http://2018.qcrypt.net/committees/.



An extended abstract should be 2-3 pages in A4 or letter size PDF, using
reasonable margins and at least 11pt font. It should give a non-technical,
clear and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their
impact, and their importance to quantum cryptography.


For a "poster only" submission, a one-page non-technical PDF is sufficient
as the extended abstract.

The extended abstract may refer to technical details which are presented
elsewhere. In particular, authors may include citations to a full version of
the paper that is either published, available on arXiv.org or provided as an
attachment (links to full versions on personal webpages are not accepted).
This is strongly recommended for theory submissions to help the peer-review
process. The extended abstract should not be a compressed version of the
full-length paper.

Extended abstracts should be
