SAC 2012 will be held at the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, during August 16-17, 2012.

Previously called the Workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography, the Conference on Selected Areas in Cryptography (SAC) series was initiated in 1994, when the first workshop was held at Queen’s University in Kingston. The SAC proceedings are published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series published by Springer. More information on the past SAC conferences can be found at the main SAC conferences site.

SAC 2012 is held “in co-operation with” the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), which is the leading professional organization for cryptographic research.

The SAC conference has been held annually since 1994 in various Canadian locations, including Calgary, Kingston, Montreal, Ottawa, Sackville, St. John’s, Toronto and Waterloo.

The objective of the conference is to present cutting edge research in the designated areas of cryptography and to facilitate future research through an informal and friendly conference setting.
