We are the Real World PQC workshop.

Our aim is to bring together the industry, academia and standardization bodies to think about the tasks we will encounter ahead of integrating post-quantum algorithms to the networks, protocols and systems we use today. Our aim will be informed by sharing knowledge about the latest advances of cryptanalysis, the state of different algorithms, and implementation concerns.

We believe it is very important to start organizing around this topic now as we begin to face the challenges of migrating our systems to post-quantum cryptography. Welcome to the first instantiation of our workshop!
