IACR 2000 Elections: Candidates
I have served IACR since 1983 as Secretary, Treasurer, President, and
Director. During that time we created premier cryptologic conferences,
literature, and community. Our present challenges include electronic
publication and sponsorship of workshops. I know where we have been and I
know where we are going. Please vote for me.

Top quality papers in all areas of cryptography used to be sent primarily
to IACR conferences. Due to the explosion of conferences, IACR is at a
crossroad. This must be addressed properly. Being a member since 1983,
I am in good position to make sure that IACR conferences remain attractive.

algorithms from evil bureaucrats, all in the name of rampant capitalism...
A crusader by night, passionately promulgating the latest ultra cool web
ways to keep IACR members informed, aware, and well fed at every Crypto

Best known as the submission-server guy, I've also served on
CRYPTO and Eurocrypt program committees and am program
chair for CRYPTO 2001. I have specific goals such as further
internetizing our publications, but run mainly on a claim of
general competence and the willingness to do the work.
I will be happy to serve as director of IACR. I think the IACR should
continue being an organisation for cryptologic research with a strong link
to applied research. Making FSE an IACR conference is a step in that
direction. Member since 1991.

As the general chair, I am having a real-time experience
to prepare the first IACR-sponsored Asiacrypt conference.
If elected, I would like to do my best for IACR to promote
and maintain the worldwide integrity of cryptologic research.
The IACR's high standards for research review and publication
are exemplary, and I will work to promote and sustain them.
Accessibility to the material is essential to building a worldwide
research community, and it is my goal to extend access
in ways that are consistent with the IACR's commitments.

I have recently finished a 6 year term on the board of USENIX,
and would enjoy offering my experience and energy to the IACR,
where my professional interests now lie.
