CRYPTO '95 General Information

August 27-31, 1995
Santa Barbara, California, USA

The program

Crypto '95 is the fifteenth in a series of workshops on cryptology held in Santa Barbara, California and is sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, and the Computer Science Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The program for the workshop will cover all aspects of cryptology. Formal proceedings will be provided at the conference.

In addition to the regular program of papers selected or invited by the program committee, there will be a rump session on Tuesday evening for informal presentations. Facilities will also be provided for attendees to demonstrate hardware, software and other items of cryptological interest. If you wish to demonstrate such items, you are urged to contact the General Chair so that your needs will be attended to. The social program will include hosted cocktail parties and dinners on Sunday and Monday, and the Beach Barbecue on Wednesday. These events are included with the cost of registration. No evening meals will be provided at the dining hall.

About the conference facilities

The workshop will be held on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The campus is located adjacent to the Santa Barbara airport and the Pacific Ocean. Accommodations are available in the university dormitories at relatively low cost for conference participants. Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to stay in the dormitories, so those bringing small children will need to make separate arrangements in one of several nearby hotels. More information on hotels is given below. Parking on campus is available at no cost to participants. Smoking inside of campus buildings is prohibited except in designated dormitory rooms.


Participation is invited by interested parties, but attendance at the workshop is limited, and pre- registration is strongly advised. To register, fill out the attached registration form and return it to the address on the form along with payment in full before July 14, 1995. Campus accommodations will be available on a first come, first serve basis for attendees who register by July 14, 1995. Registration received after July 14, 1995 may be accepted if space is available, but there are no guarantees.

The conference fees include participation in the program and all social functions, as well as membership to the IACR and a subscription to the Journal of Cryptology. The room and board charges include dormitory lodging Sunday night through Wednesday night and breakfast and lunch Monday through Thursday. Technical sessions will run from Monday morning to Thursday at noon. A very limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding.

Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are invited to apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends should be received by the General Chair before June 16, 1995. Students registering for the Conference need to provide verification of their student status with a letter from their Supervisor and a photocopy of their student card.

Cancellations received, in writing, by the General Chair before July 28, 1995 will be considered for a refund of full fees paid minus $75 for a copy of the proceedings and handling costs. No refunds will be made for cancellations received after July 28, 1995, but a copy of the conference proceedings will be mailed to those persons unable to attend.

Local Area Information

For those who choose not to stay in the dormitories, the following is a partial list of hotels in the area. Those who choose to stay off campus are responsible for making their own reservations, and early reservations are advised since August is a popular season in Santa Barbara. Note that Goleta is closer to UCSB than Santa Barbara, but a car will probably be required to travel between any hotel and the campus. All prices are subject to change: prices should be confirmed by calling the individual hotels directly. However, mention CRYPTO '95 when you are making your reservation and in several of the hotels you will be eligible for the university rate which can be significantly less than the normal rates. We are not able to block rooms in these hotels, so please make reservations as early as possible. The quality of the hotels range from rather expensive beach- front resorts to basic inexpensive accommodations.
