This is an affiliated event of Asiacrypt 2022 and organized by NTT Social Informatics Laboratories and Academia Sinica.

The registration (early, prior to 11/10) of QCW is 20 USD when together with attendance to Asiacrypt, 40 USD if standalone; it needs to be done via the webpage of ASIACRYPT 2022.

Scope and topics

This one-day workshop focuses on the theoretical aspects of quantum cryptography. Due to active research and rapid progress in quantum computing, there has been significant interest in both cryptography secure against quantum computers (post-quantum cryptography) and cryptography that exploits the power of quantum information (quantum cryptography). This workshop aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas for quantum cryptography, discuss and share latest progress in this area, and to encourage and attract researchers to work in quantum cryptography.  

This workshop consists of contributed talks and a few tutorial/invited talks. This workshop solicits submissions of extended abstracts about research results on quantum cryptography. Submissions are reviewed by program committee members, who select a small number of contributed talks.

 The scope is all aspects of theoretical quantum cryptography including:

but not limited to them. Research on post-quantum cryptography is also within the scope if the techniques use concepts from quantum information. This workshop features theoretical talks (experimental results are **not** within the scope).


This workshop has no published proceedings, so it accepts submissions about recent results that have already appeared or will appear in other conferences or workshops. 

Important dates

Submission instructions

Submissions must be written in English and at most 3 pages excluding references in A4 or letter size, using reasonable margins and at least 11pt font. Submissions must begin with a title and be anonymized (with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or any identifying citations). Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF format. An extended abstract for a talk should give a succinct and clear description of the main contributions, ideas for them, and their impact on quantum cryptography. We encourage the authors to attach a full version to a 3-pages extended abstract though reviewers are not required to read full versions. Authors of accepted contributed talks are required to attend the workshop but can present their work remotely.
