This annual conference aims to bring together cryptography researchers with developers implementing cryptography in real-world systems. The conference goal is to strengthen the dialogue between these two communities. Topics covered focus on uses of cryptography in real-world environments such as the Internet, the cloud, and embedded devices.

The 2016 edition of the workshop will be held in Stanford, CA on January 6-8, 2016. For further details, visit the workshop website.
