Rump session call for submissions - FSE 2019

Chairs: Pierre Karpman and Brice Minaud

Submission instructions

In the year of grace 2019, the FSE rump session takes place in Paris. Benefiting from millennia of grand culture -- from the early Magdalenian paintings of Lascaux to the stunning architecture of the Chambord hunting grounds --, Paris is undoubtedly the best country for a rump session to take place. High-quality submissions are solicited in the following topics and more: conference announcements, advertisements for job openings, breaking results, making fun of Parisian cryptographers, etc.

The proceedings of this acclaimed rump session will be published in the highly successful ToCS series. The best submissions to include at least one Parisian word will also be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the world-famous Journal de cryptologie symétrique de Paris.

Additionally, a few prestigious prizes will be awarded to the most outstanding contributions:

  • Le prix de l'académie des sciences (Le Price of la Academy of Sciences), for the best technical contribution
  • Le prix Racine (Le Price Root), for the most elegant and elaborate presentation
  • Le méta-prix Poincaré-Magritte-Couperin (Le Price Gödel-Escher-Bach), for the best presentation that offers a prize
  • Le prix De Funès (Le Price of Funès), for the overall most entertaining talk
