FAST SOFTWARE ENCRYPTION WORKSHOP 2000 (FSE2000) ================================================ 10-12 April 2000, New York, New York, USA CALL FOR PAPERS Fast Software Encryption is a six-year-old workshop on symmetric cryptography. Since the first workshop-held at Cambridge University in December 1993-it has grown considerably; the most recent conference, held in Rome in March 1999, had 170 people. As the U.S. government's Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) reaches a conclusion, interest in symmetric cryptography has grown considerably. In 2000, FSE is coming to the United States for the first time, to the Hilton New York and Towers, and will be held in conjunction with the 3rd AES Candidate Conference (same location, 13-14 April 2000). Instructions for Authors ------------------------ Interested parties are invited to submit original unpublished papers on the design and analysis of symmetric encryption algorithms and hash functions. In particular, we encourage submissions containing analyses of the AES. It is strongly preferred that submissions be processed in LaTeX according to http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html, since this will be a mandatory requirement for the final papers. The paper must not exceed 15 pages in length. The LaTeX files are to be sent electronically, together with the email and physical addresses of the sender. If papers are submitted in paper form, 12 copies are required. The papers must not be submitted simultaneously to other workshops or conferences with proceedings. Preproceedings will be available at the meeting and the final proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Under a separate announcement, NIST will invite people to submit papers on the AES candidates to the 3rd AES Candidate Conference (AES3). Authors should submit their paper to either AES3 or FSE2000, not to both. Papers on AES candidates submitted to FSE2000 and rejected will (with the authors' permission) automatically be submitted to AES3; submitting your paper to FSE2000 does not forfeit your ability to present at AES3.
