The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR, https://www.iacr.org) is a non-profit worldwide scientific organization whose purpose is to further research in cryptology and related fields. IACR has established the IACR Fellows Program to recognize outstanding IACR members for technical and professional contributions that:
- Advance the science, technology, and practice of cryptology and related fields;
- Promote the free exchange of ideas and information about cryptology and related fields;
- Develop and maintain the professional skill and integrity of individuals in the cryptologic community;
- Advance the standing of the cryptologic community in the wider scientific and technical world and promote fruitful relationships between the IACR and other scientific and technical organizations.
IACR fellow is one of the highest honors in the field of cryptology.
Among top researchers in the field of cryptography, our adjunct Professor Vincent Rijmen was elected as a Fellow of IACR in 2019 for
co-designing AES, contributions to the design and cryptanalysis of symmetric primitives, and service to the IACR
Congratulations to Vincent, and all the other IACR fellows in 2019!!!
