NIST plans to host a SHA-3 2014 Workshop at the University of California, Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara, CA on August 22, 2014, following Crypto 2014. DIAC 2014 (Directions in Authenticated Ciphers) will immediately follow the SHA-3 Workshop.
The length of the SHA-3 Workshop has been reduced to one day. NIST hopes this workshop will continue the vigorous participation of the cryptographic research community that made the SHA-3 Competition a success. The goal of the workshop is for the community to help NIST get a better understanding of SHA-3 and its possible applications, with particular focus on additional modes of operation for SHA-3 that might be worth standardizing in the future.
