The IACR Fellows Program was established in 2004 to recognise outstanding IACR members for technical and professional contributions. The first cohort of researchers awarded IACR Fellows includes Tom Berson, David Chaum, Don Coppersmith, Witfield Diffie, Ron Rivest and Adi Shamir.
International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) is a non-profit scientific organization whose purpose is to further research in cryptology and related fields. Cryptology is the science and practice of designing computation and communication systems which are secure in the presence of adversaries. Cryptology is the science of the making and breaking of encryption algorithms, but in the modern world it encompasses so much more. You use cryptology all the time, when banking, when using a mobile phone, when opening your car door. You are even using it now when you are reading this web page.
