TPMPC 2019

TPMPC 2019 will be held at Bar-Ilan University (in the Tel Aviv area) from June 17 to June 20. Transportation will be provided from some select Tel Aviv hotels to Bar-Ilan in the morning and back at the end of the day, for those interested in staying in Tel Aviv.

More details will be posted on this page as we get closer to the event.

The registration fee for TPMPC 2019 is $150 (USD). Please register at the TPMPC 2019 registration page.

The exact location of the workshop is in the Nanotechnology Building (building number 206) at Bar-Ilan University (map). Please note that photo ID (passport or drivers license) is needed to enter the campus.

We recommend staying at a hotel in Tel-Aviv; we will provide transportation to the conference at Bar-Ilan and back every day. 

We have a special rate at the Atlas hotel chain for the Yam, Tal by the Beach, Melody and Shalom & Relax hotels. The prices per night including breakfast are: 730NIS-single and 780NIS-double at the Yam hotel; 800NIS-single and 870NIS-double at Tal by the Beach and at Melody (100NIS more for a superior room); and 840NIS-single and 930NIS-double at Shalom & Relax (100NIS more for a superior room).  
Please make your booking via and use the Promo Code TPMPC2019. 

For those who wish other options, the Hilton, Carlton and Grand Beach hotels are in the area.

Buses will pick participants up from the Tal by the Beach and Shalom & Relax hotels every morning, and will return participants there at the end of every day. (Note that all of the above hotels are close to these two pick-up points.) The buses will leave approximately 1 hour before the talks begin each day. Exact times will be given closer to the workshop, and to those who sign up for the bus.

Call for Contributed Talks (closed)
TPMPC solicits contributed talks in the area of the theory and/or practice of secure multiparty computation. Talks can include papers published recently in top conferences, or work yet to be published. Areas of interest include
  • Theoretical foundations of multiparty computation: feasibility, assumptions, asymptotic efficiency, etc.
  • Efficient MPC protocols for general or specific tasks of interest
  • Implementations and applications of MPC
The TPMPC steering committee will select talks with the aim of constructing a balanced program that will be of interest to the audience. 

Details regarding contributed talks and submissions:
  • Contributed talks will be 20-30 minutes. 
  • The deadline for contributed talks is February 23 2019.
  • Please submit a short abstract (up to five pages, but preferably just one) of your proposed talk via the submission system: If your talk is an already published work, please include a link and information about where it was presented.
  • Notifications will be sent out no later than March 25 2019.
The program committee who will choose the talks is the TPMPC organization committee, consisting of Ivan Damgård, Yehuda Lindell, Jesper Buus Nielsen, Claudio Orlandi, Mike Rosulek, Thomas Schneider, and Nigel Smart.
