The northernmost crypto workshop ever organised, Arctic Crypt 2016, took place in the period of July 17-22 in spectacular arctic surroundings under the midnight sun in Longyearbyen, Svalbard at 78° north.

The program was constructed around a series of 10-12 invited tutorial talks on any cryptographic topic including, but not limited to:

  • Foundational theory
  • The design, proposal, and analysis of cryptographic primitives
  • Crypto protocols, side-channel attacks, and other aspects of implementation
  • Information theoretic approaches to digital security
  • Recent trends in cryptography.
