Starting this year, FSE has moved to a new open-access journal/conference hybrid model. Submitted articles undergo a journal-style reviewing process. Accepted papers are published in Gold Open Access (free availability from day one) by the Ruhr University of Bochum in an issue of the newly established journal IACR Transactions on Symmetric Cryptology.

The yearly FSE event will consist of presentations of the articles accepted to the journal IACR Transactions on Symmetric Cryptology, as well as invited talks and social activities. This new model has been established as a way to improve reviewing and publication quality while retaining the highly successful community event FSE.

For this first conference FSE 2017 on the new model, authors can submit papers to the IACR Transactions on Symmetric Cryptology three times, every three months on a predictable schedule (the following years will include four rounds). Authors are notified of the decisions about two months after submission. In addition to accept and reject decisions, papers may be provided with "minor revision" decisions, in which case the paper is conditionally accepted and an assigned shepherd will verify if the changes are applied, or "major revision" decisions, in which case authors are invited to revise and resubmit their article to one of the following two submission deadlines, otherwise the paper will be treated as a new submission. We endeavor to assign the same reviewers to revised versions.

Papers accepted for publication before the end of January 2017 will be presented at that year’s conference. Note that it is mandatory that accepted papers at the IACR Transactions on Symmetric Cryptology journal are presented at the corresponding FSE event.

The next deadlines are:
  • First round: June 1, 2016
  • Second round: September 1, 2016
  • Third round: November 23, 2016

The 19th annual Fast Software Encryption workshop (FSE 2012) was held at the Washington Marriott Hotel in Washington DC, USA, on March 19-21, 2012. The general chair was Bruce Schneier and the program chair was Anne Canteaut.

The conference attracted 143 delegates from 30 countries, including 27 students.

The technical program featured 24 papers selected from 90 submissions, along with two invited lectures, one on "Provable" security against differential and linear cryptanalysis" by Kaisa Nyberg (Aalto University and Nokia), and one on "The history of linear cryptanalysis" by Mitsuru Matsui (Mitsubishi Electric Corporation).

As last year, FSE 2012 did not have printed pre-proceedings, but instead made the papers available online, before and during the conference. Revised versions of the accepted papers are going to appear in the proceedings of the conference published by Springer. The presentation slides for the technical sessions and the rump session can be found on the conference website at: http://fse2012.inria.fr/index.php?page=program http://fse2012.inria.fr/index.php?page=rump
