Instructions for Authors

Submissions must be at most 30 pages in Springer's LNCS format including title page, abstract, references and appendices. Any amount of clearly marked supplementary material may be supplied, following the main body of the paper or in separate files; however, reviewers are not required to read any supplementary material, and submissions are expected to be intelligible and complete without it.

It is mandatory that the submission be processed in LaTeX2e according to the instructions given by Springer here. 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 in a manner that is understandable to a general cryptographic audience, and should discuss the relation with relevant works. Submissions must not substantially duplicate published work or work that has been submitted in parallel to any other journal or conference/workshop with published proceedings, and cannot be submitted to any other venue before the notification date. 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 here.

  Submissions not meeting these 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. In borderline cases, submissions by PC members will be held to a higher standard. Program chairs are not allowed to submit.

Conference Proceedings

Proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference. Authors of accepted papers must sign the IACR copyright form for their work to be published in the proceedings. Authors must guarantee that one of them will present their paper at the conference, and should grant permission to the IACR to distribute the presentation slides as well as a recording of the presentation as per the IACR copyright and consent form.


Students whose papers have been accepted and who present their talks at the conference will have their registration waived. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students, whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves, are encouraged to apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends should be sent to the general chair.
