International Association for Cryptologic Research

Welcome to the second electronic issue of the IACR Newsletter!

With the the AES process going in its second round, Eurocrypt '99 in Prague, and many other interesting events coming up, 1999 promises to be an exciting year for cryptology and for IACR. We see also new workshops in the field, such as CHES (Workshop on Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems), and continuation of established conferences. See the Calendar section or!

It looks as if the electronic proceedings CD-ROM may finally be ready! The CD-ROM contains PDF files for all papers published in IACR proceedings from 1981-1997. It will also be available separately from Springer in the LNCS series. I've seen the collection and it's indeed a very valuable tool to have around.
