Individuals and companies active in the field are invited to present and especially to demonstrate Running Code that pushes forward the "state of the art". STATEMENT OF INTENT In spite of the excesses and tragedies of the Great Dot Com era, we have come to the realization that the Internet, Commerce, and Technology are inextricably related. We are therefore gathered together to study, as a community, the application of Cryptograpy and Information Security to the world of Finance. For it is Finance that drives Commerce, and Commerce, in the modern era, is based on the 'net. This is a technical, practical meet. Presentations of demonstrable technology in the field of Financial Cryptography are invited. As this is a practical conference, we are hoping to accept every demonstrator. THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT This conference is about implementations. Presentations are required to demonstrate working code within the first five minutes. Note that we are delighted to accept proposals from work-in-progress projects. If your demo crashes while honorably attempting to execute, the crowd will still love you. THE VENUE Our Venue is the Upper Library, within the Signet Library, which is a listed building housing the Society of Writers to Her Majesty's Signet. This exclusive conference venue is located in the centre of Edinburgh, within the Royal Mile. ADMINISTRATION Included in the conference admission will be breakfast, lunch and tea & coffee breaks. Also included will be the conference dinner in a local Edinburgh establishment. The conference administration will block-book a convenient hotel in the centre of town. Details to be advised. NEXT STEPS FOR PRESENTERS 1. Save the dates 28/29 June 2002, Friday and Saturday on your calendar. It is good to plan on a few extra days, and especially, leaving on the day after, Sunday, will help to get the best fares. 2. Prepare your presentation. Check the evolving programme at http://www.efce.net/programme.html. Propose your presentation by mailing the Programme Chair, Rodney Thayer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. 3. Book passage to Edinburgh. Don't forget to stay a few days on either side to see the sights. Check the site for Locatives and Logistics. 4. Work on your presentation. Remember, the main rule is that you demo working code. 5. Get your budget approved / allocated / applied for. Whilst a commercial conference, accepted presenters will pay a deeply discounted fee, to be announced in a forthcoming release. For planning purposes, 200 GBP (approximately 300 dollars or 320 euros) should cover presenter's admission; the hotel should be about 100 GBP ($150 or E160) per night. Also include travel and incidentals in your budget. 6. The call for delegates -- attendees who do not present -- will by published at a later date. If there is someone in your organisation who needs to survey the state of the financially cryptographic art, they can attend as a delegate. For planning purposes, 500 GBP ($750 or E800) should cover the delegate's admission. 7. If you think the conference can benefit your organisation, consider sponsoring. Contact the Sponsorship Chair Fearghas McKay, email@example.com for more details. 8. Keep an eye on the conference web site (www.efce.net) for evolving details.
