This preliminary information is subject to change.

Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding information assurance, with a specific focus on commercial contexts. The conference covers all aspects of securing transactions and systems. Original works focusing on both fundamental and applied real-world deployments on all aspects surrounding commerce security are solicited. Submissions need not be exclusively concerned with cryptography. Systems security and interdisciplinary works are particularly encouraged.

The goal of the conference is to bring security and cryptography researchers and practitioners together with economists, bankers, implementers and policy-makers. Intimate and colourful by tradition, the FC program features invited talks, academic presentations, technical demonstrations and panel discussions. In addition, several workshops will be held in conjunction with the FC conference.

FC21 is the 25th FC conference and a special anniversary program is planned in addition to the regular program.

Coronavirus update: Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to organize an in-person meeting for FC21. Instead we will be hosting a virtual event with authors presenting their papers by video that will be made available online, as well as some additional live/interactive content. We are still working out the details and will provide updates when they are available. We plan to go to Grenada for FC22 instead and to postpone the anniversary celebration until then.




This conference is organized annually by the International Financial Cryptography Association.

In Cooperation with IACR.
