Yet Another Conference on Cryptography is an international event organized every two years by the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulon a laboratory of Toulon university. The fifth edition YACC'10 is a conference in honour of Jacques Wolfmann for his teaching retirement. The scope covers all the Jacques's favourite research themes : finite fields, finite rings, Boolean functions, sequences, designs, coding theory, cryptography and algebraic geometry. As the previous editions, it will take place at IGESA center, on Porquerolles Island.

Some selected papers will be published in a special issue of Cryptography and Communications - Discrete Structures, Boolean Functions and Sequences, Springer-Verlag.

YACC is twinned with Western European Workshop on Research in Cryptology (WEWoRC), another meeting in the field of cryptology organized every odd years since 2005.
