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.
