Technische Universiteit Eindhoven is organizing a one-day workshop in Utrecht, the Netherlands, on Friday 17 July 2015, to publicly identify critical ongoing challenges in authenticated encryption, looking beyond the CAESAR competition. This is a workshop in the classic sense, featuring intense interactive discussions among serious people, strictly limiting the amount of time used for lectures, and keeping laptops closed.
The following invitees have confirmed their participation:
- Daniel J. Bernstein (organizer; University of Illinois at Chicago, USA; Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Netherlands)
- Carlos Cid (Royal Holloway University of London, UK)
- Joan Daemen (STMicroelectronics, Belgium; Radboud Universiteit, Netherlands)
- Orr Dunkelman (University of Haifa, Israel)
- Shay Gueron (University of Haifa, Israel; Intel, Israel)
- Kenny Paterson (Royal Holloway University of London, UK)
- Bart Preneel (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium)
- Christian Rechberger (Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Denmark)
- Patrick Schaumont (Virginia Tech, USA)
- Adi Shamir (Weizmann Institute, Israel)
- Ingrid Verbauwhede (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium)
The workshop is open to interested parties on a space-available basis. Funding from ECRYPT-CSA allows free registration until the early-registration deadline. There is a separate registration page.
The workshop will begin at 10:00 and conclude at 17:00.
The workshop will take place at Vergaderruimte Utrecht, Pieterskerkhof 23, 3512 JS Utrecht. This location is a 2-minute walk east from the Dom tower in the heart of Utrecht, a short walk from Utrecht's central train station:
- Starting from the train platform, take the escalator up into the train station.
- Walk generally east, away from the highest-numbered tracks, towards and past the lowest-numbered tracks. You're now in a shopping mall ("Hoog Catharijne"), still inside the train-station building. Continue east, eventually down an escalator, out of the building.
- Continue east until you reach a big canal ("Oudegracht"). Typically this means passing through "Drieharingstraat", but many other paths also work.
- Follow the canal east and south, crossing the canal at some point, to arrive at the huge church tower ("Domtoren"). If you get lost, ask someone to point you to the "Dom".
- Continue east on the north side of the church (at this point the tower is on the west and the main church body is on the east), on Domplein/Voetiusstraat/Pieterskerkhof. Look for the Vergaderruimte Utrecht driveway on the north side of the street (blue sign in the picture below).
- Walk up the driveway. Look for the Vergaderruimte Utrecht building on the right side (small white sign in the picture below), about 15 meters up the driveway.
- Inside the building, walk up one floor to the meeting room.
Utrecht has many hotels near the train station and is very well connected by train: for example, during the day there are trains every 15 minutes from AMS airport (Schiphol) to Utrecht, taking just 30 minutes. There are also frequent direct trains from the Rotterdam and Eindhoven train stations, which have frequent buses to the nearby RTM and EIN airports. For train travel from Europe, Utrecht has several direct ICE trains every day from Frankfurt, taking just 198 minutes, and Rotterdam has direct Thalys trains.
