As usual, there will be a rump session at Crypto 2004. 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. Presentations that are not purely technical in nature are also possible (and encouraged!).
Those wishing to give a talk at the rump session must submit a short abstract, no more than two pages long, according to one of the following procedures:
Submissions should include a requested amount of time for the presentation, up to seven minutes. Depending on the submissions they receive, the chairs will select a program for the session.
The Rump Session Webcast started Tuesday August 17th at 7:00pm Pacific. The server for the webcast has two interfaces, Internet Explorer and Windows Media Server. Clients for this Webcast is available from Microsoft here. Your feedback is welcome. Please contact James Hughes.
The Webcast was recorded and posted here.
