The workshop is intended for Early Career Researchers (ECRs): Graduate students (both M.Sc. and Ph.D.) and post-doctoral researchers whose research falls within the scope of the workshop (crypto implementation, physical attacks, secure testing methods, machine learning security). Candidates will be selected from the group of applicants, with a focus on students who already have a research topic that they can present, and who have better chances of pursuing an extended academic career.

The call is open to Israeli ECRs and German ECRs from universities in NRW. All participating ECRs are expected to attend the full duration of the workshop, present one poster and one short presentation, and participate in the panels.

ECRs accepted to the workshop will be offered a scholarship which will cover the cost of flights and accommodation.

  • A description of the ECR’s research topic and an explanation why it is relevant to the scope of the workshop.
  • CV (including a list of publications and preprints if available).
