Instructions for Authors

Submissions must be at most 30 pages in the Springer's LNCS format including title page, abstract, references and appendices. Any amount of clearly marked supplementary material may be supplied, following after the main body of the paper or in separate files (for example, program code or experimental data). The submission should be intelligible without the supplementary material, as reviewers are not required to access the supplementary material.

It is mandatory that the submission be processed in LaTeX2e according to the instructions given by Springer. Submissions must be typeset in plain Springer LNCS format, in particular without changing the font size, margins or linespacing.

Submitted papers must be in PDF format and submitted electronically via the submission server. The submission server asks for a list of authors. The list is not visible to reviewers. The list of authors should include all those, and only those, who have contributed to the submission.

The submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and an introduction. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at the level understandable for a non-expert reader. The introduction should also explain the relation to related work.

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 to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or 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

  Submissions not meeting the above guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

For accepted papers the formatting instruction will be the same as for submissions and the length of the final version will be at most 30 pages, including title page, abstract, references and appendices.

Program committee members are allowed to submit one paper, and a second one if both submissions are co-authored. Any PC member submission will be held to higher standards than other submissions. Program chairs are not allowed to submit.
