I'm happy to share that the submission deadline for the 13th WAHC (Workshop on Applied Homomorphic Cryptography) has been extended to July 24th.

We encourage submissions of any and all papers on applied privacy-protected computing based on homomorphic encryption, THE, MPC, etc..., including hybrid techniques that includes TEE's, differential privacy, etc...

WAHC is again as an official CCS-affiliated workshop, located in Copenhagen Denmark on Nov. 26th.

For the latest edition of WAHC in 2023, we especially invite papers that are related to computing hardware for privacy-protected computing. For example, we would encourage papers that focus on, for example, hardware acceleration of FHE, design and tuning of FHE schemes for specific hardware environments, software engineering to accommodate hardware easily, integration with TEEs, ASIC design, FPGAs, GPUs, embedded applications, etc.... We of course also welcome any and all papers relevant to applications of FHE and FHE topics in general.

As part of our encouragement of hardware-related activities in the coming WAHC, we are happy to announce that Prof. Ingrid Verbauwhede from KU Leuven – COSIC will be giving our keynote address this year.

We have set our paper submission and review schedule as follows:
  • Submission Deadline: 24th July
  • Acceptance Notification: 25th August
  • Camera-Ready Version: 8th September
  • Workshop: 26th November
Our workshop website is here: https://homomorphicencryption.org/workshops-wahc23/

We will accept for review both full papers (12 pages) and brief demo papers (6 pages.)  The workshop proceedings will be published as a part of the ACM CCS 2023 proceedings.

Submissions must be single PDF files, in double-column ACM format (the sigconf template from https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template, with a simpler version at https://github.com/acmccs/format), including references and appendices.  Submission information will be maintained on the workshop website:  https://homomorphicencryption.org/workshops-wahc23/

Registration for the workshop is through the CCS website (https://www.sigsac.org/ccs/CCS2023).

Kindly email if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
