The Digital Security group at Radboud Univerity, Nijmegen will organize the fifth International Workshop on Cryptography, Robustness, and Provably Secure Schemes for Female Young Researchers (CrossFyre). This 2-day workshop will be held at Radboud University, Nijmegen, Netherlands, on 2-3 November 2015.

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. 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 their students' passive (mainly listening) or active (all students are encouraged to submit abstracts and give talks during the workshop) participation.


  • Keynote talks,
  • Fellow researchers introducing themselves: Selected fields in cryptography, security, robustness, provable security, etc. are briefly outlined,
  • A plenary discussion on positions and perspectives of women in research and gender stereotypes,
  • Social dinner


  • Some grants will be awarded for those students who are presenting and least able to attend.
  • Child-care services can be arranged for the participants upon request.
  • CrossFyre 2015 participants will be eligible to receive discounted CARDIS 2015 registration. CARDIS 2015 will be held in Bochum, Germany from 4-6 November 2015.

Disclaimer: This workshop aims to bring women together to discuss their career opportunities, network, and exchange experiences. The workshop does NOT intend to discriminate men. Male researchers are of course welcome to attend.
