Financial Cryptography and Data Security 2018


Twenty-Second International Conference
February 26–March 2, 2018
Santa Barbara Beach Resort


From Europe, the best connections to Curaçao are via Amsterdam, with several daily flights on KLM and TUI. From North America, possibilities include American via Miami or Charlotte, Air Canada via Toronto, and Jet Blue via New York JFK. There are also some flights from Latin America and the Caribbean.

The nearby island of Aruba is a much more popular destination for North American visitors, with many more flight connections from the USA in particular, so an option to consider is to fly to Aruba instead, and from there to Curaçao on a separate ticket. There are many daily flights between the islands with Air Aruba and Insel Air (the latter is more frequent but is reputed to be somewhat less reliable). We are trying to arrange special deals on activities and accommodation for attendees connecting or overnighting in Aruba; watch this space!

We have arranged discounts for FC18 attendees with the SkyTeam alliance to Curaçao and with the oneworld alliance to both Curaçao and Aruba.

Airport transfers

The conference hotel is somewhat isolated, and it's a bit of a journey from Willemstad (the capital) and from Hato International Airport. The agency we're working with for the conference excursion and activities, Business Serenity, also offers a transfer service and has arranged promotional pricing for FC18 attendees. You can book airport transfers directly via their website using promocode: IFCACUR17.

Feel free also to send your flight number and arrival time to the General Chair. We can try to let you know about others arriving at the same time so that you can arrange to share a taxi.


Although most FC attendees will likely not need a visa, nationals of some countries do require a visa to travel to Curaçao. Information is available here.




This conference is organized annually by the International Financial Cryptography Association.
