>Cryptographic Hash Workshop
>NIST Gaithersburg, MD (Green Auditorium)
>Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 2005
>Submission Deadline: July 15, 2005 (Workshop without Proceedings)
>Recently a team of researchers reported that the SHA-1 function 
>offers significantly less collision resistance than could be 
>expected from a cryptographic hash function of its output size. 
>NIST plans to host a Cryptographic Hash Workshop on Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 
>2005 to solicit public input in how best to respond to the current 
>state of research in this area.  The workshop has the following 
>·	Assess the status of the current NIST-approved hash 
>functions, i.e., the SHA-256 and SHA-512 families in	addition to 
>·	Discuss short term actions to mitigate the potential problems 
>with the various applications of the approved	hash functions;
>·	Discuss the conditions that would warrant an early transition 
>away from any of the approved hash functions;
>·	Discuss the potential replacement options for any of the 
>approved hash functions;
>·	Clarify the properties of unkeyed cryptographic hash 
>functions required for different applications such as	digital 
>signatures, key derivation, message authentication, and random 
>number generation.
>NIST solicits papers, presentations, case studies, panel proposals, 
>and participation from any interested parties, including 
>researchers, systems architects, vendors, and users.  NIST will post 
>the accepted papers and presentations on the workshop web site and 
>include these in a workshop handout. However, no formal workshop 
>proceedings will be published. NIST encourages presentations and 
>reports on preliminary work that participants plan to publish 
>elsewhere. Topics for submissions are included in the attached 
>document, and details about the workshop will be available at the 
>following web site shortly: http://www.nist.gov/hash-function
