Subject: Re: [PHC] "natural" conference / workshop for PHC

Hi Thomas,

PasswordsCon will indeed be the de facto place-to-be, however we don't plan
a formal presentation of each candidate by its designers: unlike AES/SHA3,
where most submissions came from well-funded academics, it's unlikely that
most PHC submitters can travel and talk about their submission at a
dedicated conference.

There may also be a presentation about PHC at DEFCON, as a way to elicit
feedback and contributions.
