IACR secretary candicacy statement Martijn Stam

The IACR is the foremost international academic organization in cryptology and I believe it is
of vital importance that it is being run by competent and enthusiastic people in order to best
serve the interest of cryptology in general and its membership in particular. Good communication
between the board and the members helps to set goals for our community and find ways of
achieving them. As secretary, I would strive to report back to both the board and the community
in a clear, concise, and expedient manner to assist this process. At the same time, I would try
to work with other board members to strengthen the IACR brand. As board member, I will
encourage especially the involvement of younger IACR members with an emphasis on their
integration within the community.
