Student Stipends

Student speakers please write to the general chairs at with the subject line "CHES 2018 stipend" before August 18 (and preferably as soon as possible). Please identify your school, your advisor and the title of your talk, and indicate if this will be your first IACR conference of the year. If you desire more support than a registration fee waiver, see below.

Students who seek financial assistance (i.e. a stipend or fee waiver, or more) please also write to with the subject line "CHES 2018 stipend" before July 31 (and preferably as soon as possible). Please in your email include a short motivating paragraph specifying your school and advisor (if any). Especially if you are not presenting, ask your advisor to write us email in support (one email can pertain to multiple students).

For students from institutions in the United States there is additional support available through an NSF grant. We explicitly encourage students from the US to apply for stipends

In all cases, please await a response before registering yourself (this saves us some trouble). If you ask for assistance, you will not be assessed a late fee if we respond too late for you to make the early registration deadline. Students who receive assistance should be prepared to show a student ID or other proof of affiliation at the registration desk.

Invoices for Registration

Those who require an invoice prior to registering, or have other billing problems, please write to us at with the subject line "CHES 2018 billing" and explain your situation.
