Registration Deadline: September 18, 2015

The Digital Security <http://www.ru.nl/ds/> group at Radboud University, 
Nijmegen will
organize the fifth International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness,
and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre).

<http://www.ru.nl/facultyclub/> (of Radboud University),
Nijmegen, Netherlands, on 2-3 November 2015, with the support and 
funding of
Microsoft Research.

This workshop aims to bring female researchers in the field of
Cryptography and Information Security together to promote their research
topics and their careers as women in science and engineering. We hope to
encourage a tighter cooperation between women in Cryptography and
Information Security, and to motivate joint papers. In this spirit, you
are kindly invited to attend and give a short presentation of your
research topic to your fellow participants.

Though the workshop is primarily aimed at female researchers, male
researchers are also invited to take part.

We also welcome undergraduate students to this workshop and strongly
encourage supervisors to support participation, be it passive (mainly
listening) or active (all students are encouraged to submit abstracts
and give talks during the workshop).

  * 2 keynote talks,
  * Fellow researchers introducing themselves: selected fields in
cryptography, security, robustness, provable security etc. are briefly
  * A plenary discussion on positions and perspectives of women in research

IMPORTANT: A few grants will be awarded for those students who are
presenting and least able to attend.

Important dates:
-- September 04, 2015: Deadline for extended abstract of your talk
-- October 01, 2015: Notification for grant applicants + Announcement of
