Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission to Crypto 2000, the Twentieth Annual IACR Crypto Conference. Crypto 2000 is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR), in cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, and the Computer Science Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara. Important Dates are:
|Conference||August 20 -- 24, 2000|
|(Electronic) Submission Deadline||February 10, 2000, 17:00 EST|
|Notification of decision||April 26, 2000|
|Proceedings version deadline||May 30, 2000|
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Submission Format: The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The length of the paper should be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices, and at most 26 pages total. It should use at least 11-point fonts and have reasonable sized margins. The Introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Electronic submission: This is strongly encouraged. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will appear by January 21, 2000 at http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/users/mihir/crypto2k/electronic.html. Electronic submissions must conform to this procedure and be received by February 10, 2000, 17:00 EST in order to be considered.
Hardcopy submission: Authors unable to submit electronically are invited to send a cover letter and 20 hardcopies of their submission (double-sided) to the Program Chair at the postal address below. Submissions must be received by the Program Chair on or before February 02, 2000 (or postmarked by January 28, 2000, and sent via airmail or courier). Late submissions and submissions by fax will not be considered. The cover letter should contain the paper's title and the names and affiliations of the authors, and should identify the contact author including e-mail and postal addresses.
Decisions and presentation: Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by April 26, 2000. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
Conference Proceedings: Proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference. Clear instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. The final copies of the accepted papers will be due on May 30, 2000.
