Instruction for submission

Submissions of abstracts for contributed papers are sought in both theoretical as well as experimental quantum cryptography and related fields. We encourage submissions from related areas such as non-locality and information theory. The submission to QCrypt should include:

*Author information
*(At least three) Keywords
*”Extended Abstract” in PDF format

Submissions are managed by the EasyChair system (as was in QCrypt 2017).

Extended Abstract

An Extended Abstract should be 2-3 pages in A4 or letter size and can be in an arbitrary style in PDF. It should describe a non-technical, clear and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their impact, and their importance to quantum cryptography. Technical details can be referred in the Extended Abstract (such as citing arXiv papers) or provided as an attachment. This is strongly recommended for theory submissions to help the peer reviewing process. The Extended Abstract should not be a compressed version of the technical exposition of the paper.  For “Poster only” submission, a one-page non-technical PDF is sufficient as the Extended Abstract.

There will be no proceedings published from QCrypt2018, and the submission to QCrypt2018 does not prevent authors to submit the material to other conferences and journals.

Upload the file from EasyChair system using “Upload Paper” section at the bottom of the page.


Presentation style

Also in “Title and Abstract” section, select which presentation your submission is intended for:

•Talk or else Poster — If your paper is not accepted as a talk, it will be automatically considered as a poster submission.
•Talk only
•Poster only
