remote presentations will be allowed.

We expect speakers to be in the Zoom session at least 15 minutes
prior to the scheduled start of their contribution. We will announce the
running order well in advance.
We will send a private message via Zoom to signal remote speaker(s)

should be prepared to be share their screen and start talking after
being introduced by us.
A final reminder: do not play copyrighted music as part of your
talks. Yes, we're serious. Yes, we know it's a bummer. Since the rump
session is recorded and posted on YouTube, if you play copyrighted
music, the IACR YouTube account is at risk of being shut down. Please
don't put us at risk!
