SECRYPT 2011 - The International Conference on Security and Cryptography July 18-21, 2011, University of Seville, Spain.
SECRYPT 2011 was integrated in ICETE (International Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications) a joint conference combining six complementary conferences, namely DCNET, ICE-B, OPTICS, SECRYPT, SIGMAP and WINSYS, covering a broad range of related fields, including data communication networking, e-business, optical communication systems, security processing and multimedia applications, and wireless networks.
This year SECRYPT received 160 submissions. After a strict selection process, the SECRYPT program included 22 papers as full papers (13.75% of submissions) and 16 as short papers (10% of submissions). Additionally, 20 papers were accepted for poster presentation. With these acceptance ratios, SECRYPT 2011 continues the tradition of previous conferences, a quality conference with high caliber.
The best papers of SECRYPT will be invited to appear in a post-conference book that will be published by Springer-Verlag composed by a selection of papers from ICETE.
In addition to the presentation sessions, SECRYPT 2011 included four outstanding keynote lectures, which are relevant to today’s lines of research and technical innovation. These talks were presented by internationally distinguished researchers, namely: Han-Chieh Chao, National Ilan University, Taiwan ”WiMAX?- A Case Study on Minimizing Construction Cost for IEEE 802.16j Multi-hop Relay Networks“, by Vincenzo Piuri, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy “Biometrics Privacy: Technologies and Applications”, by Enrique Cabello, University Rey Juan Carlos, Spain “Face Biometrics without Intrusion in Airport” and by Winfried Lamersdorf, University of Hamburg, Germany “Paradigms of Distributed Software Systems: Services, Processes, and Self-Organization” who helped enhancing the overall quality of this conference with their contributions.
The papers were organized in 15 sessions ranging the hot topics of nowadays such as statistics and stochastic processes to coding, from detection and estimation to Shannon theory, from data compression to data networks and systems security, cryptography, as well as many other topics.
The organizing committee included the ICETE conference co-Chairs Prof. Mohammad S. Obaidat, Monmouth University, USA and Professor José Sevillano, University of Seville, Spain and the SECRYPT program chairs Prof. Pierangela Samarati, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy and Prof. Javier Lopez, University of Malaga, Spain.
SECRYPT 2011 was sponsored by INSTICC (The Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and IEEE Systems Council. The conference was held in cooperation with IACR (International Association for Cryptologic Research), IEICE (The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers), SWIM (IEICE Special Interest Group on Software Interprise Modelling), ATI (Associación de Técnicos de Informática), CEPIS( Council of European Professional Informatics Societies), FIDETIA (Fundación para la Investigación y el Desarollo de las Tecnologías de la Información en Andalucía), INES (Iniciativa Española de Software y Servicios), ACM SIGMIS (Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems), ACM SIGSAC (Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control), ACM SIGMM (Special Interest Group on Multimedia).
Regarding the best paper award, SECRYPT has recognized the paper, "BYTE SLICING GRØSTL - Optimized Intel AES-NI and 8-bit Implementations of the SHA-3 Finalist Grøstl" from Kazumaro Aoki, Günther Roland, Yu Sasaki and Martin Schläffer as the best paper of the conference. As the best Student Paper Award, SECRYPT acknowledged the paper untitled “A Method for Flexible Reduction over Binary Fields Using a Field Multiplier” by Saptarsi Das, Keshavan Varadarajan, Ganesh Garga, Rajdeep Mondal, Ranjani Narayan and S. K. Nandy as the best student paper presented at the conference.
