The Rump Session will be live streamed to Zoom attendees, and both video and slides will be made available online to the wider world afterwards. The act of submitting will be taken as your consent to these terms. Note that it is your responsibility as a Rump Session Contender that no plagiarism or copyright infringements take place. Make sure you are close to the stage near the appointed time.


Your slides must be submitted as a PDF, which we will collect together to avoid laptop changes during the presentation. If you have a sufficiently entertaining reason why you should be exempted from this requirement, let us know in your submission. If you plan to give a talk without slides, or if you do not have slides ready yet, please prepare and submit one slide with your name and talk title. If your proposed submission has any special requirements — e.g. other presentation formats, extra microphones, extraterrestrial lighting cues, etc. — please describe your full requirements in the form under the format field in your original submission and we will let you know what is or is not possible.

Detailed Instructions

Any submissions not following these guidelines may be rejected. Some submissions may have to be rejected or shortened because of time constraints. Please remember that the Rump Session is meant for short and entertaining presentations. We will only be accepting a very limited number of talks (if any) related to any conference/meeting announcements or job adverts since these types of announcements are now well served by the IACR's calendar of events and open positions in cryptology pages. However, if you want to submit one slide only for such events then we may display these during the break of the Rump Session. To encourage you all to send in and give humorous talks, the "Best Paper" at the Rump Session is solicited to submit to the Journal of Craptology and will receive a special prize. At the discretion of the rump session chairs, other prizes may be awarded for talks of exceptional quality and/or hilarity.

A final reminder: do not play copyrighted music as part of your talks. Yes, we're serious. Yes, we know it's a bummer. Since the rump session is recorded and posted on YouTube, if you play copyrighted music, the IACR YouTube account is at risk of being shut down. Please don't put us at risk!
