 In Association With Cryptology Research Society Of India (CRSI) and IEEE Communications Society - Delhi Chapter
 22-24 November 2022, C-DOT Delhi, India

 Advancements In Cryptology For Enhancing Security & Privacy In Communication Networks

Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) in association with Cryptology Research Society of India (CRSI) shall be hosting National Workshop on Cryptology (NWC) 2022 in its New Delhi Campus on 22nd, 23rd and 24th Nov 2022. The event shall have invited talks by eminent researchers and practitioners working in the area of Cryptology in various organizations and academic institutes across the country. Subject areas of the invited talks shall include Post-Quantum Cryptography, Light-Weight Cryptography, Homomorphic Encryption and other advanced areas in Applied Cryptology. Workshop participants’ profile is expected to be a mix of students working in the area of cryptology & Data Security, cryptography products’ users from various defense and security agencies and cryptology product developers from organizations and companies across the country.

The event is expected to increase collaboration amongst cryptology researchers within the National Community. It shall also help expose students and other workshop participants, to the cutting-edge frontiers of research and development in Cryptology and Data Security. The event shall help C-DOT to create more collaboration opportunities with academia as well as industry partners for carrying out National Projects in the areas of Cryptology and Data Security.

As a part of this workshop, an exhibit of posters in cryptology & allied areas is also planned. Those interested may refer to 'Invite for Posters' tab
