Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this collection is to collect high-quality survey papers on topics related to cryptography.

Overviews of the current state of cryptographic research activities are invited. They may target a specific field or area of cryptography. They may focus on: (1) identification of research gaps and future research directions; (2) ethical/social aspects of cryptography and their impact on human rights and social coherence; and (3) cryptographic practice, implementation, and standardisation. Needless to say, all submissions are subject to a normal review process.
