24th International Conference on Fast Software Encryption
Fast Software Encryption 2017



General Information

Welcome to the 24th International Conference on Fast Software Encryption (FSE 2017).

FSE 2017 is the 24th edition of Fast Software Encryption conference, and one of the conferences organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). FSE 2017 will take place in Tokyo, on March 5-8, 2017.

Original research papers on symmetric cryptology are invited for submission to FSE 2017. The scope of FSE concentrates on fast and secure primitives for symmetric cryptography, including the design and analysis of block ciphers, stream ciphers, encryption schemes, hash functions, message authentication codes, (cryptographic) permutations, authenticated encryption schemes, cryptanalysis and evaluation tools, and security issues and solutions regarding their implementation. From this year, FSE 2017 also solicits submissions for Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers. These papers aim at revieweing and contextualizing the existing literature in a particular area in order to systematize the existing knowledge in that area. To be considered for publication, they must provide an added value beyond prior work, such as novel insights or reasonably questioning previous assumptions.

New publication model as of FSE 2017

From this year, FSE has moved to an open-access journal/conference hybrid model. Submitted articles undergo a journal-style reviewing process. Accepted papers are published in Gold Open Access (free availability from day one) by the Ruhr University of Bochum in an issue of the newly established journal IACR Transactions on Symmetric Cryptology.

For any further information, please view the FAQ page and the Call for Papers.
