The fourth ICISC was held at 63 Building (This building is the highest
building in Korea. I think this building is just like SUNSHINE60 in
Japan) in Seoul, the capital of Korea from December 6 to 7, 2001. The
conference aims at providing a forum for presentation of new
contribution in research, development, and application in information
security and cryptology.
The program committee received 102 submissions from 17 countries
(Australia, Belgium, China, Demnmark, France, Germany, India, Italy,
Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnum, UK and USA),
of which 32 were selected for presentation in 8 sessions. The accepted
rate of papers was 31% (32/102). There was also one invited talk by
David Pointchval(ENS, France) on "Provable Security in Public Key
Cryptography". This presentation made a deep impression on me.
We participated and presented our research (Session 6: A
Multi-signature Scheme with Signers' Intentions Secure against Active
Attacks) in the conference. Korean graduate students spoke English
fluently, therefore I thought I must get used to speaking English.
