CrossFyre 2022
6 - 7 October 2022
Passau - Germany
CrossFyre Workshop 2022 (Hybrid)


The 11th International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness, and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre) is a hybrid workshop organized by University of Passau and University of Regensburg. The workshop is planned on October 6 and October 7, 2022 (Central European Time) in Passau, Germany (University of Passau, ITZ Building) and will be streamed online at the same time.

This workshop aims to bring female researchers in the field of Cryptography and Information Security together to promote their research topics and careers as women in science and engineering. We hope to encourage a tighter cooperation between women in Cryptography & Information Security and to motivate joint papers. An additional aim is to raise awareness among participants on gender-equality, to present the outcome of relevant social studies on the topic, and to discuss possible measures for improving the current situation. In this spirit, you are kindly invited to attend and give a presentation of your research topic to your fellow participants.

Though the workshop primarily aims at bringing women together to discuss their research and their career opportunities, make contacts, and exchange experiences, male researchers are also welcome. So, we encourage everyone to join the event regardless of their gender.

We welcome not only post-docs and PhD students, but also MSc and BSc students to this workshop and strongly encourage supervisors to support their students' participation. All participants are encouraged to submit abstracts and give talks during the workshop.

Participants are kindly invited to give 20-minute presentation or to present a poster about their current or past work at the workshop. The attendance and the submission to the workshop are free of charge. If you would like to attend the workshop, please register using this form. If you would like to submit your work to the workshop to present a poster or to give a talk, please first register and then submit your abstract or extended abstract via EasyChair.


  • Key-note talks
  • Fellow researchers introducing themselves: Selected fields in cryptography, security, robustness, provable security, etc. are briefly outlined
  • Discussions on gender-equality topics
  • Get-together dinner and social event (if you would like to attend or if you have a dietary restriction, please contact the organizers - we will ensure vegetarian and non-vegetarian options)


  • Even though there is a hybrid option for participation, we strongly encourage the participants to attend the workshop in person. To support this, a limited number of travel and accommodation grants will be awarded (participants who are presenting will be prioritized).
  • Child-care services will be provided for the participants in need.
