Call for Papers

Original research papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission to ASIACRYPT 2013, the 19th Annual International Conference on Theory and Application of Cryptology and Information Security. The conference is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research in cooperation with the Cryptology Research Society of India and Microsoft Research India.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop that has proceedings. IACR reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions and the IACR policy on irregular submissions will be strictly enforced. For further details, see http://www.iacr.org/docs/irregular.html.

The submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or obvious references. The length of the submission must be at most 14 pages excluding references and appendices. For papers that are accepted, the length of the proceedings version will be at most 20 pages in the appropriate format. The text should be in a single column format, in at least 11-point fonts and have reasonable margins, and submitted in PDF format. The submission should begin with a title, a short abstract and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at the level understandable for a non-expert reader. The reviewers are not required to read appendices and the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX. Authors should refer to the instructions listed on http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for typesetting their manuscripts. These instructions are mandatory for the final papers. The papers should be submitted electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure can be found here.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be available at the conference. Authors of accepted papers must complete the IACR copyright assignment form available at http://www.iacr.org/forms/copyright_agreement.html for their work to be published in the proceedings, and guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
