Edinburgh is again host to the international *engineering* conference
on Financial Cryptography.  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".


      "The study of money, above all other fields in economics,
      is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or
      to evade truth, not to reveal it."
         -- John Kenneth Galbraith,
            Money: Whence it came, where it went - 1975, p15

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.


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.


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.


1. Save the dates 22/23 June, 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
   <a href="http://www.efce.net/programme.html">evolving programme</a>.
   Propose your presentation by mailing the Programme Chair,
   <a href="mailto:programme@efce.net"> Ian Grigg </a>.

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

7. If you think the conference can benefit your organisation,
   consider sponsoring.  Contact the Sponsorship Chair
   <a href="mailto:sponsor@efce.net"> Rachel Willmer </a>
   for more details.

8. Keep an eye on the <a href="http://www.efce.net/"> conference web site </a>
   for evolving details.
