General Information

Original research papers on all technical aspects of public key cryptography are solicited for submission to PKC 2008, the 11th International Workshop on Practice and Theory in Public Key Cryptography.

Instructions for Authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/ is planning to submit before the author notification deadline (November 21, 2007) to other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Parallel submissions will be rejected from all places they have been submitted to, and further actions may be taken!

A sharp limit of 15 pages, not including references and appendices, in standard LNCS format is placed on all submissions. The paper should be intelligible and self contained without appendices, as committee members are not required to read appendices. The submission receipt deadline is Friday, September 7, 2007 5:59pm CEST. The paper must be fully anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. The paper must start with a title, an abstract, and keywords. It should be followed by a succinct statement appropriate for a non-specialist reader, specifying the subject addressed, its background, the main results, and their significance. Technical details directed to the specialist should then follow. If accepted, one of the authors is expected to present the paper at the workshop. Further submission instructions will be posted on the conference home page, http://www.iacr.org/workshops/pkc2008/, about one month before the deadline. Submissions not meeting the guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
