Conference on Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC 2016) August 10-12, 2016 St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada CFP: Conference on Selected Areas in Cryptography
Call for Papers:

The Conference on Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) is an annual
conference dedicated to specific themes in the area of cryptographic
system design and analysis. SAC 2016 will take place at Memorial
University in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, on August 10-12, 2016.
Following the success of the first SAC Summer School (S3) in 2015, SAC
2016 will be immediately preceded by S3, which will run August 8-9.

Authors are encouraged to submit original papers related to the
following themes for the SAC 2016 conference. Note that the first
three are traditional SAC areas, and the fourth topic is the special
focus for this year.

* Design and analysis of symmetric key primitives and cryptosystems,
  including block and stream ciphers, hash functions, MAC algorithms,
  and authenticated encryption schemes.

* Efficient implementations of symmetric and public key algorithms. 

* Mathematical and algorithmic aspects of applied cryptology. 

* Side channel, fault and related attacks on symmetric and asymmetric
  cryptographic primitives and their countermeasures.

Papers must be submitted electronically. Submission details will be
given on the conference web site.

The general theme of the 2016 SAC Summer School (S3) will be "Secure
and efficient implementation of symmetric and public key algorithms
(with special regard to side channel attacks)". Further details will
be provided on the SAC Conference web site.
