CHES 2017 rump session: Submission form

To request a talk slot at the CHES 2017 rump session, fill out the following form before Tuesday 26 September 2017, 11:00 Taiwan 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 CHES 2017 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 chairs (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 18:00 on Tuesday. Updated slides will not be accepted on USB sticks or by email.
