The Fourth Asian Workshop on
Symmetric Key Cryptography
ASK 2014

The Asian Workshop on Symmetric Key Cryptography aka ASK is a pioneering initiative by like minded scientists whose aim is to promote research on symmetric key cryptography, which includes research on various cryptographic primitives like block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions, analysis, designs, proofs and implementations of these primitives etc. This time ASK is coming to Chennai,India. The workshop will be held inside the campus of Society for Electronic Transaction and Security (SETS) on 19,20,21 and 22 December,2014 . The program will follow the design of the past ASK workshops containing two parts, invited talks and group discussions. ASK 2014 targets active students and young researchers in the field of cryptography to learn and collaborate in small interest groups. There is no participation fee, interested researchers are welcome to attend the workshop. We regret to inform you that we cannot provide any funding to cover your travel cost.
