NIST plans to hold a second NIST PQC Standardization Conference in August 2019 to discuss various aspects of these candidates, and to obtain valuable feedback for the selection of the finalists soon after the conference. NIST will invite each submission team of the 26 second-round candidates to give a short update on their algorithm.
