- special linguistic aspects of cryptology
- the influence of cryptography on the course of history
- teaching and promoting cryptology in schools, universities, and the public
We welcome everybody interested in the field of historical cryptology to participate in the event. We invite submissions to HistoCrypt for presentation at the conference, which will be evaluated by the program committee. Participation in the conference is mandatory for at least one author of each accepted paper.
We invite paper submissions in two distinct tracks:
- regular papers up to 10 pages (including references) on substantial, original, and unpublished research, including evaluation results, where appropriate
- short papers up to 4 pages (including references) on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress, negative results, surveys, tutorials, or opinion pieces
Presentations of accepted papers are either oral, poster, or demo, which will be decided by the program committee.
Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in the HistoCrypt 2023 proceedings.

We are hopeful that the 2023 conference can take place as physical meeting in the first place.
In case that conditions and travel options become limited again, we will try hard to arrange a hybrid event with physical meeting and the possibility to present online.
Should circumstances beyond the control of the organizers make the physical meeting impossible, the organizers shall undertake every reasonable effort to implement the conference as a virtual meeting.
Should this prove to be impossible, the organizers reserve the right to cancel this edition of the conference, and publish the accepted papers in the proceedings.
News will be posted on the website.
