The Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) conference will be held at the University of Waterloo from August 14-16, 2019. The conference co-chairs are Kenneth Paterson (University of London/ETH Zurich) and C&O professor Douglas Stebila.
SAC has been held annually since 1994 in several Canadian cities. The topics for SAC 2019 are:
Design and analysis of symmetric key primitives and cryptosystems, including block and stream ciphers, hash functions, MAC algorithms, and authenticated encryption schemes.
Efficient implementations of symmetric and public key algorithms.
Mathematical and algorithmic aspects of applied cryptology.
Real-world cryptography/cryptographic protocols in practice.
The conference will be preceded by a Summer School on August 12-13.
