SAC Summer School

The purpose of the Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) Summer School is to provide participants with an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of specific areas of cryptography related to the current SAC topics by bringing together world-class researchers who will give extended talks (half-day) in their areas of specialty. The SAC Summer School is open to all attendees, and may be of particular interest to students, postdoctoral fellows, and other early-career researchers.

The SAC Summer School will be held prior to SAC, on August 12-13, 2019, at the University of Waterloo.


The registration fee for the SAC Summer School is $40 for regular attendees and $20 for students. Register today.


All talks will take place on the University of Waterloo main campus in Davis Centre (DC) room 1302. You can find more detailed information on the Schedule page.
