Fast Software Encryption (FSE) 2023 will take place in Beijing, China on March 20-24 2023. FSE 2023 is the 29th annual conference that is widely recognized as the internationally leading event in the area of symmetric cryptology. Since 2002, FSE is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), a global organization with more than 1600 members that brings together researchers in cryptology.

FSE focuses on fast and secure primitives for symmetric cryptography, that form the workhorse for all applications of cryptography (e.g., AES, SHA-2 and SHA-3). The event covers a broad range of practical and theoretical topics including the design and analysis of block ciphers, stream ciphers, encryption schemes, hash functions, message authentication codes, authenticated encryption schemes, cryptanalysis and evaluation tools, and secure implementations.
