Call for Papers

The Workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) is an annual conference 
dedicated to specific themes in the area of cryptographic system design and 
analysis. Authors are encouraged to submit original papers related to the themes
for the SAC 2005 workshop:

    *     Design and analysis of symmetric key cryptosystems
    *     Primitives for symmetric key cryptography, including block and stream 
          ciphers, hash functions, and MAC algorithms
    *     Efficient implementations of symmetric and public key algorithms
    *     Cryptographic algorithms and protocols for ubiquitous computing (RFID,
          sensor networks)

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has 
published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other journal and 
conference or workshop that has proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear
in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. 

Submission Format:

    * The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, 
      acknowledgments, or obvious references.
    * The length of the submission should be at most 12 pages excluding 
      bibliography and appendices. It should be in single column format, use at 
      least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. The total length should
      not exceed 20 pages.
    * The submission should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of
      keywords. 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
    * We recommend that the paper be typeset using LaTeX and the LNCS style 
      available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs. Submissions should 
      preferably be in PDF format (i.e., a .pdf file), although PostScript
      (i.e., a .ps file) will be allowed. US letter paper size is preferred 
      over A4. If at all possible, the paper should use Type 1 fonts (rather 
      than Type 3 fonts).
    * Papers must be submitted electronically by May 13, 2005, 18:00 EST. A 
      detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be made 
      available at https://www.cosic.esat.kuleuven.be/websubmission/sac2005/.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of
their merits. Neither late submissions, submissions by email, nor hardcopy 
submissions will be accepted. Authors unable to submit electronically should 
contact the co-chairs by April 14, 2005.

Conference Proceedings

The proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) Series (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html).
As in previous years, the Workshop Record will be available to participants 
during the Workshop. Instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings 
version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. Authors of an accepted 
paper must guarantee that at least one of the authors will attend the workshop 
and present their paper.
