Motivation and Scope

Pairing-based cryptography has been one of the most active areas of cryptography over the past decade. The 3rd International Conference on Pairing-Based Cryptography will bring together researchers interested in all technical aspects of pairing-based cryptography.

We solicit authors to submit papers describing their original research on all aspects of pairing-based cryptography including: cryptographic protocols; mathematical foundations; hardware and software implementations; and applied security.
