FSE 2011 is the 18th annual Fast Software Encryption workshop, for the tenth year sponsored by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). FSE 2011 will take place in Lyngby, Denmark. Original research papers on symmetric cryptology are invited for submission to FSE 2011. The workshop concentrates on fast and secure primitives for symmetric cryptography, including the design and analysis of block ciphers, stream ciphers, encryption schemes, analysis and evaluation tools, hash functions, and message authentication codes (MACs).
Instructions for Authors
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. IACR reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions and the IACR policy on irregular submissions will be strictly enforced.
The submission must be written in English and be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The length of the submission should be at most 14 pages excluding bibliography and appendices using single column with at least 11pt size font, reasonably sized margins and in total not more than 20 pages. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Submissions to FSE 2011 should be submitted electronically in PDF format. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure is available here.
The authors of submitted papers guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop if their paper is accepted.
Electronic Pre-proceedings will be available at the workshop. Proceedings are intended to be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Authors of accepted papers will be required to complete the IACR copyright assignment form, as available on the IACR website, for their work to be published in the workshop final proceedings.
Workshop Information and Stipends
The primary source of information is this website.
A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the workshop. Students, whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves, are encouraged to apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends should be sent to the general chairs.

Recommended Submission Style
Electronic submissions to FSE 2011 should be in Portable Document Format (PDF). The submission should preferably be in A4 paper size and use Type 1 fonts (rather than Type 3 fonts which usually look fuzzy and ugly when viewed on screen).
The following procedure is recommended for generating submissions.
Preparing the LaTeX file
To get 11 point fonts, reasonable margins and A4 paper, you obtain the llncs package and use the following two lines at the beginning of your LaTeX file:
You should not use any other command to set the margin and/or change the font. This LaTeX style will be used for the preproceedings. For the final proceedings, the maximum published length is 18 pages and the formatting should be done using the single line:
Generating PDF file with pdflatex
After using the above declaration, assuming that your paper is stored in the file paper.tex, it suffices to type the command:
$ pdflatex paper
This generates a file paper.pdf ready for submission. There are other, more complex, procedures to generate such PDF files. These alternative procedures are not recommended. If, for some reason, an alternative procedure is used, the resulting PDF file should be verified using the following commands:
$ pdfinfo paper.pdf
$ pdffonts paper.pdf
These two commands respectively print general information (including paper size) and font information.
To insert graphics into your PDF file, there are two different options:
- Generate the graphics using a text description within LaTeX.
- Include an externally generated graphics file.
For the first option, authors should consider the PGF package. It can be used by including the following line in the LaTeX file:
The PGF package also offers several options for drawing arrows, diagrams and shadings. To use these options, replace the above line by:
To use externally generated graphics, a convenient method relies on the following package:
With this package, a PDF file drawing.pdf can be included using:
Authors should make sure that their externally generated graphics PDF files have a correct bounding box specification.
