The Theory of Cryptography Conference , of or in Abbreviated TCC is an annual conference for theoretical cryptography research. It was first held in 2004 at MIT , and was ook hero at MIT in 2005, beide times in February. TCC became an IACR -sponsored workshop in 2006.
From the Charter (2003)
The belang of the theoretical study of Cryptography is widely honored by now. This area has Contributed much to the practice of cryptography and secure systems as well as to the theory of computation at large.
The needs of the theoretical cryptography (TC) communities are best understood in relatie to the two communities tussen welke it resides: the Theory of Computation (TOC) community and the Cryptography / Security community. All three communities harbor grown in volume in recent years. This increase is in volume makes the hosting of TC by the bestaande TOC and Crypto conferences quite problematic. Furthermore, the perspectives of TOC and Crypto on TC Do Not necessarily fit the internal perspective of TC and the interests of TC. All synthesis indicate a value in the establishment of an independent specialized conference. A dedicated conference not only zorgt opportunities for research Dissemination and interaction, but helps shape the field, give it a recognizable identity, and communiceren zijn message.
