Dear colleagues and friends!

Under the current circumstance of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our participants are our priority. As such, we have decided to run SETA2020 as a virtual online conference on the same dates, September 22-25, 2020. We also decided to extend the deadline of submission and change other important dates accordingly as:

  • 22 June 2020 – Extended Submission Deadline
  • 10 Aug. 2020 – Acceptance Notification
  • 03 Sept. 2020 – Final submission of accepted extended abstracts

Please make use of this extension to prepare your submission(s) and/or to improve your previously submitted ones at the following Easychair link:

Further information will be posted soon regarding the online platform that we will be using for SETA2020.

The participiants of SETA2020 to have no registration fee for the digital conference.

Yours sincerely,
Program Committee
Tor Helleseth, Chunlei Li, and Zhengchun Zhou.

SETA is a leading international conference in the areas of sequences and their applications to communication and cryptography. The conference provides a forum for the research communities of these domains, and covers all of the fundamental, computational and implementation aspects of these fields.


The official language of the event is English.

Welcome to St. Petersburg

Few cities in the world can rival Saint Petersburg in the amazing fastness of its birth, development and flowering. There is hardly any other similarly daring and ambitious city that even in its cradle claimed for the right to be on a par with major centers of Europe. Founded by Peter the Great on the Baltic borders of Russia, Saint-Petersburg grew to become, within merely two decades, the brilliant capital of the Great Russian Empire.
