Call for Papers

For the past two decades, the International Iranian Society of Cryptology (ISC) Conference on Information Security and Cryptology (ISCISC) has been the flagship event in the field of information security and cryptology in Iran. Now, we are pleased to announce the 21st International ISC Conference on Information Security and Cryptology (ISCISC 2024), organized by Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran, and in collaboration with the Iranian Society of Cryptology. The conference will take place on October 16 and 17, 2024.
ISCISC 2024 aims to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners who share a keen interest in various aspects of information security and cryptology. Our goal is to provide a dynamic forum where academicians, specialists, and students from all around the world can convene to discuss the latest developments in theory and practice across diverse areas of information security. The conference will foster collaboration, knowledge exchange, and innovation.
We invite researchers, developers, and practitioners to submit their original papers and propose workshops on emerging topics related to cryptology and information security. Industrial exhibitions will run alongside the main conference, providing additional opportunities for engagement. Keynote and plenary speeches, as well as panel discussions, will enrich the conference experience.
