In keeping with tradition, there will be an evening rump session
at Asiacrypt 2001. The rump session is intended to be an informal session in which
participants give short presentations on recent results, work in progress, and
other topics of interest to the crypto community (possibly including
presentations of a less technical nature - even humorous!). Bill Caelli will chair
this year's rump session, which will take place on Monday December 10, beginning
at 7:15 PM. Those wishing to give a talk at the rump session must submit a short
abstract according to one of the following procedures:
- Electronic submission:
Send email to Colin Boyd
before 10 AM GMT Friday, December 7 with your
submission in ASCII text. If you wish, you may also send your electronic
presentation and we will load it onto the computer that will be used at the
- Hardcopy submission at conference: Hand the submission to either
Colin Boyd or Bill Caelli at the conference before noon on Monday, December 10.
Submissions should consist of:
- Speaker name and affiliation (optionally including other authors).
- Requested amount of time for the presentation, up to ten minutes.
- Abstract of one or more paragraphs, but definitely no more than two pages.
Depending on the submissions received, the chairs will select a program for
the session. It is intended to allow rump session talks to be made available
on the conference web site after the conference, at the discretion of the
authors and program chair.
