Third AES Candidate Conference (AES3)

Near the end of Round 2 of the AES Development Effort, the Third AES Candidate Conference (AES3) was held on April 13-14, 2000, at the Hilton New York and Towers in New York, New York, USA. Over 250 people from more than 25 countries attended the conference.

At AES3, Round 2 technical analysis of the finalists was presented and discussed, along with views as to which of the finalists should be selected as the AES winner(s).

AES3 followed the Fast Software Encryption Workshop 2000 (FSE2000), which was held at the same location on April 10-12, 2000.
