Crypto 2008 rump session: Submission form

To request a talk slot at the Crypto 2008 rump session, fill out the following form before Monday 18 August 2008, 22:00 Santa Barbara time. Some submissions may have to be rejected because of time constraints; please remember that the rump session is meant for short and entertaining presentations.

The file-switching time before each rump-session talk often seems longer than the talk itself, and often is longer than the talk itself. The Crypto 2008 rump session will attempt to reduce the talk-switching time by concatenating PDFs for adjacent talks. If your slides are suffering from the PDF format, please contact the rump-session chair (rumpsession at to discuss other options, but submit a PDF in the meantime. If you plan to give a talk without slides, or if you don't have slides ready yet, please prepare and submit one slide stating your name and talk title.

Online updates of slides for previous submissions will be accepted until some time on Tuesday.
