Sequences have important applications in ranging systems, spread spectrum communication systems, multi-terminal system identification, code division multiple access communications systems, global positioning systems, software testing, circuit testing, computer simulation, and stream ciphers. There is also an interaction between sequences and error-correcting codes.

The third international conference on sequences and their applications will be held from October 24 to October 28, 2004 at Hoam Faculty House in Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. There will be a number of invited speakers at the conference.

Original papers on all aspects of sequences and their applications are solicited. A postscript version of the abstract of at most 1500 words should be sent to the program co-chairs Tor Helleseth ( or Dilip Sarwate ( via email before June 15, 2004. The authors will be notified of acceptance by August 1, 2004. The post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as an LNCS.
