The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plans to hold the 5th NIST PQC Standardization Conference from April 10-12, 2024, in Rockville, Maryland. The purpose of the conference is to discuss various aspects of the algorithms (both those selected and those being evaluated) and obtain valuable feedback for informing decisions on standardization. NIST will invite the submission teams for BIKE, Classic McEliece, Falcon, and HQC to give an update on their algorithms.
In addition, NIST is soliciting research and discussion papers, surveys, presentations, case studies, panel proposals, and participation from all interested parties, including researchers, system architects, implementors, vendors, and users. NIST will post the accepted papers and presentations on the conference website after the conference; however, no formal proceedings will be published. NIST encourages the submission of presentations and reports on preliminary work that participants plan to publish elsewhere.
