ECRYPT II Hash Workshop 2011

Call for Papers

Call for Papers

In view of the rapid developments in the theory, cryptanalysis, design and implementation of cryptographic hash functions, and the ongoing SHA-3 competition, the symmetric crypto lab (SymLab) of ECRYPT II organizes a dedicated workshop. The workshop will take place right after Eurocrypt 2011. The aim of the workshop is to attract researchers and developers both from academia and industry. We encourage presentations and reports on preliminary work that the participants plan to publish later elsewhere.

Hash-2011 encourages submissions on any topic related to cryptographic hash functions. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • cryptanalysis of hash functions
  • theory of hash functions
  • design of hash functions
  • implementations of hash functions
  • reports on the deployment of hash functions in real-world applications

Important dates

Submission deadline: March 31, 2011 (23:59 CEST)
Author Notification: April 20, 2011
Workshop: May 19-20, 2011

Instructions for Authors

In order to prevent submissions to Hash-2011 from conflicting with submissions to forthcoming conferences with proceedings or journals, Hash-2011 will have no formal proceedings, but a conference record will be available.

The submission must be written in English and 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 14 pages excluding bibliography and appendices using single column with at least 11pt size font, reasonably sized margins and in total not more than 20 pages. 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.

Submissions to Hash-2011 should be submitted electronically in PDF format.

The authors of submitted papers guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop if their paper is accepted.
