FSE 2006 is the 13th annual Fast Software Encryption workshop, for the fifth year sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Original research papers on symmetric cryptology are invited for submission to FSE 2006. The workshop concentrates on fast and secure primitives for symmetric cryptography, including the design and analysis of block ciphers, stream ciphers, encryption schemes, analysis and evaluation tools, hash functions, and message authentication codes (MACs).

Instructions for Authors
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other international conference or workshop that has proceedings.
The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The length of the submission should be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices. It should have reasonably sized margins and fonts (at least 10pt). The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
It is strongly preferred that submissions be processed in LaTeX according to the instructions listed on http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html since these are mandatory for the final papers. Submitted papers must be in PDF or postscript format and should be submitted electronically. Detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be available via http://fse2006.iaik.tugraz.at.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop.
ProceedingsPre-proceedings will be available at the workshop. Proceedings are intended to be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Authors of accepted papers will be required to complete the IACR copyright assignment form at http://www.iacr.org/forms/copyright_agreement.html for their work to be published in the workshop proceedings.
