Submission deadline has passed.


DIAC 2015 calls for submissions of talks on the topics listed below.

Talk submissions should be related to the field of authenticated encryption. Talk submissions addressing latest updates of CAESAR candidates are welcomed. This type should identify themselves as such; for fairness there should be only one submission per candidate. A talk of this type is expected to highlight the latest comparisons, upcomming tweaks, proofs, software/hardware implementations, etc.

Submissions are expected to be on the very latest results and ideas, including work in progress. Submissions are therefore not expected to be full papers; they are expected to be explanations of what talks will contain. However, detailed explanations will help in selecting and organizing talks, and there is no prohibition on submission of papers in cases where papers are available.

DIAC 2015 will not publish formal conference proceedings. There is no prohibition on talk submissions for papers that have been submitted to conferences with proceedings.

To submit, send a PDF by email by September 1, 2015, 17:00 SGT to

with subject line:
DIAC 2015 Submission: [title]

and replacing [title] by the the title of the submission . Submissions are not expected to be anonymous.



The list of topics above is copied from the DIAC 2014, DIAC 2013 and DIAC 2012 workshops, which in turn draws on discussions at the January 2012 Dagstuhl workshop on Symmetric Cryptography, including suggestions from Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Eli Biham, Joan Daemen, Orr Dunkelman, Lars Knudsen, Bart Preneel, and Greg Rose.
