Crypto 2015 rump session

The Crypto 2015 rump session took place Tuesday 18 August 2015 from 19:15 PDT to 22:50 PDT. (Actually, it started several minutes late: the IACR Award Ceremony began at 19:00 PDT and went over its scheduled time despite being run by a Swiss.) Daniel J. Bernstein and Tanja Lange served as chairs.

The call for submissions has been archived below. Slides were gradually made available during the rump session from presenters who agreed to have their slides officially online. Unfortunately, the usual webcast and recording mechanisms were not provided, but there are at least some video recordings, and rumors of more comprehensive audio recordings.

The first Crypto rump session took place in 1981 and was immediately heralded as the most important meeting in cryptography. Each subsequent Crypto rump session has reached a new level of historical significance, outstripped only by the Crypto rump sessions that followed it. The Crypto 2015 rump session will attempt to live up to, and if possible exceed, the exceptionally high standards set by previous Crypto rump sessions; but it relies critically on your contributions! Do you have breaking news, progress reports, or other topics of interest to the cryptographic community? Can you keep your talk short and entertaining? Fill out the submission form and ask for a talk slot!

As an added incentive for putting serious effort into non-serious rump-session talks, the editors of the Journal of Craptology usually promise to invite a paper from the most entertaining rump-session speakers. But we haven't heard from them yet.

There is also a non-rump part of Crypto 2015. The non-rump part has its own web pages, including its own program. Warning: These links are provided purely for informational purposes. The rump-session chairs cannot guarantee the quality of the non-rump part of Crypto 2015.
