Call for Contributed Talks

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.

Submission Details:

  • Contributed talks will be 20-30 minutes.

  • The deadline for contributed talks was on Friday April 1st (anywhere on Earth).

  • Notification of acceptance is expected by April 23rd April 26th.

  • Please submit a short abstract (with a 1-2 page summary, up to five pages total) of your proposed talk via the submission system:

https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=tpmpc2022

  • Submissions should include the list of co-authors. On the submission system, you will also be asked to name the expected speaker(s), and confirm whether you will give the talk in-person (in-person talks will be prioritized, but remote talks may still be considered).

  • If your talk is an already published work, please include a link and information about where it was presented.

Student Stipends

We have a limited number of stipends to support PhD students to attend the workshop. Priority will be given to students who have little other funding (i.e. from institutions without access to large travel funds), and who would most benefit from attending (i.e. those who are working on MPC or related areas). The stipend covers registration fee for the workshop, travel to and from Aarhus as well as accommodation in Aarhus during the workshop.

If you would like to be considered, then please:

  • Send an email to malene.andersen@cs.au.dk containing at least two paragraphs addressing why you should be funded, where you are a student, and what your thesis topic is about.

  • Have your supervisor confirm your application by email.

  • The deadline for stipend applications was on Friday April 1st.
