Third PQC Standardization Conference

The NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Process has entered the third phase, in which 7 third round finalists and eight alternate candidates are being considered for standardization. NIST plans to hold a third NIST PQC Standardization Conference in June 2021 to discuss various aspects of these candidates, and to obtain valuable feedback for the final selection(s).
