Among the total number of 240 submissions, the organising board of Asiacrypt 2016 has selected 67 best scientific researches which will be presented at the event this year. Many of the researchers were conducted in the US, Japan, Singapore and the UK.
On this occasion, Professor Adi Shamir will have a lecture at National Economics University, Hanoi, on the 40-year development of cryptology.
