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 to 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. 


Important Dates:

  • Submission deadline Friday, January 26, 2024 
  • Hotel Reservation Deadline:  Tuesday, March 19, 2024
  • Conference Registration Deadline:  Wednesday, April 3, 2024 (advance registration required)
  • Conference dates:  April 10-12, 2024
