International Association for Cryptologic Research

Welcome to the 16th electronic issue of the IACR Newsletter!

Just before the holiday season, here is an update of information from IACR. Summary of the highlights in this issue: the election results, the IACR Fellows program, and online access to the Journal of Cryptology.

But I found the most interesting bit the "new" book reviewed by Peter Landrock - in fact, a translation of an Arabic volume more than 1000 years old.

This issue is again marked by some production delay on behalf of your editor, for which I apologize, but I am afraid this state will not change until Eurocrypt 2004!

The next issue of the IACR Newsletter is scheduled for publication in February 2004. However, announcements will be posted on the IACR Website as soon as possible.
