Call for Papers [.pdf Version]

In October of 2004, the ECRYPT Network of Excellence in Cryptology initiated the SASC workshop to highlight the state of stream cipher design and analysis. In SASC 2007, the third in the series of SASC workshops, we will meet again to consider how the state of stream ciphers might be changing, with special focus on stream ciphers that have been proposed within eSTREAM.

SASC 2007 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas about all aspects of stream ciphers. Particular attention will be focused on submissions present in the second phase of eSTREAM and we expect papers and discussions at SASC 2007 to be helpful in identifying the most promising stream ciphers for further evaluation.

Submissions to SASC 2007 are encouraged on any topic of relevance to stream ciphers. These might include, but are not limited to:

We also encourage submissions that question or comment upon

To avoid submissions to SASC 2007 from conflicting with submissions to forthcoming conferences with proceedings, SASC 2007 will have no formal proceedings though there will be a workshop record.
