International Association for Cryptologic Research

Welcome to the 8th electronic issue of the IACR Newsletter!

We are entering the third calendar year of the electronic IACR Newsletter. I think it is fair to say that the current form of the Newsletter together with the Web site is well accepted by cryptographers from around the world -- at least judging by the number of inputs I receive for publication.

Noteworthy items in this issue:

  • Tom Berson's IACR Distinguished Lecture of 2000 held at Asiacrypt 2000
  • IACR election results

If you have not received the IACR Newsletter by email and would like to receive it in the future, then check out your email address in the IACR member list that is mailed yearly (last in early 2000).

Please send your input to the Newsletter to

The next issue of the IACR Newsletter is scheduled for publication in June 2001. However, announcements will be posted on the IACR Website as soon as possible.
