Rump Session


IACR logo

As usual, there will be a rump session at Crypto 2005, on Tuesday August 16, from 19:30. The rump session is intended to be an informal session in which participants give short and entertaining presentations on recent results, work in progress, and other topics of interest to the crypto community. Presentations that are not purely technical in nature are also possible and encouraged, provided that they are fun!
