For years the Asiacrypt rump session has been living in the shadows of its Eurocrypt and Crypto siblings. This overshadowing officially ends now, as ASIACRYPT 2018 promises to boast the grandest rump of them all.
But first, an official communique from the IACR Rump Session Steering Committee (IACRRSSC).

Their first step immediately disappointed IACRRSSC with its nationalist undertones, as they declared that "it was time that ASIACRYPT came back to its Aussie roots, and this is a good opportunity to introduce cryptographers to the fun and cheery --- if maybe slightly broish --- culture from Down Under".
Only later was IACRRSSC slightly relieved, as the chairs-to-be announced that "presenters of boring talks better be ready to deal with our joke insertion attacks, for which offence is the best form of defence".
Their last step was more puzzling, and IACRRSSC wishes to reassure the public by saying that it is actively investigating why the triumvirate passed an order for a surprisingly large quantity of shoes.
