Instructions for Authors

It is mandatory that the submission be processed in LaTeX2e and use the latest version of Springer's LNCS format according to the instructions given by Springer (guidelines may be found here). Submissions must use the default margins and font: the LaTeX file preamble must be \documentclass{llncs} without any other package (e.g. times) modifying the font or the layout. Submissions must display page numbers (e.g. by adding \pagestyle{plain} to the document preamble). References should include DOIs where possible. The use of BibTex in conjunction with LNCS’s bibliography style splncs04.bst is strongly recommended; the use of CryptoBib is encouraged.

Submissions must be at most 27 pages long excluding references. 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. When applicable, we encourage the authors to include in their supplementary materials their responses to reviews from prior IACR events, as described in the Guidelines for Authors. The final published version of an accepted paper should have at most 30 pages in total.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Conference begins

For further details, consult the paper submission page.

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. There is no requirement to include keywords, but they may be supplied if the authors wish that. 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.

For papers that are accepted, the length of the proceedings version will be at most 30 pages using Springer’s standard fonts, font sizes, and margins. The proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be available at the conference. Authors of accepted papers must complete the IACR copyright assignment form for their work to be published in the proceedings. Moreover, authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented by one of the authors and agree that the presentations will be video recorded during the event. The camera-ready version of the accepted articles will be automatically uploaded to the IACR ePrint server.

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. Authors may wish to consult the IACR Guidelines for Authors.

Conflicts of Interest

Authors, program committee members, and reviewers must follow the IACR Policy on Conflicts of Interest, available from https://www.iacr.org/docs/.

In particular, the authors of each submission are asked during the submission process to identify all members of the Program Committee who have an automatic conflict of interest (COI) with the submission. A reviewer1 has an automatic COI with an author if:

A reviewer has an automatic COI with a submission if:

Any further COIs of importance should be separately disclosed. It is the responsibility of all authors to ensure correct reporting of COI information. Submissions with incorrect or incomplete COI information may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

COIs are not restricted to automatic ones, others being possible. COIs beyond automatic COIs could involve financial, intellectual, or personal interests. Examples include closely related technical work, cooperation in the form of joint projects or grant applications, business relationships, close personal friendships, instances of personal enmity. Full transparency is of utmost importance, authors and reviewers must disclose to the chairs or editor any circumstances that they think may create bias, even if it does not raise to the level of a COI. The editor or program chair will decide if such circumstances should be treated as a COI.

1 Reviewers include program committee members for conference publications and individuals doing ad hoc reviews for the program chairs.
2 Thesis includes any doctoral thesis as well as graduate theses which have a substantial novel research component (which may include Master’s, Diplom, etc.).
3 Sharing an institutional affiliation means working at the same location/campus of the same company/university. It does not include separate universities of the same system nor distant locations of the same company. However, if one of the involved (reviewer/author) is a manager (direct or through a chain of managers) of the other, a conflict of interest exists, even if the two work in different locations.
4 Jointly authored work refers to jointly authored papers and books, whether formally published or just posted online, resulting from collaboration on a scientific problem. It usually does not include joint editorial functions, like a jointly edited proceedings volume. For online publication, the first posting (not revisions) is the relevant date. Multiple versions of a paper (conference, ePrint, journal) count as a single paper.
5 Immediate family members include at least parents, children, siblings, spouse, or significant other.
6 The date relevant for a paper in submission is the date when it was submitted.
