Instructions for Authors

Submissions must be at most 28 pages excluding the references and auxiliary supporting material, and using the Springer LNCS format (in particular, do not modify the LNCS default font sizes or margins). Details on the Springer LNCS format can be obtained via Springer's website. It is strongly encouraged that submissions are processed in LATEX. All submissions must have page numbers, e.g., using Latex command \pagestyle{plain}. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF format.

All submissions will be blind-refereed and thus must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references (however, submissions may already be uploaded to preprint servers such as the IACR eprint or arXiv). Submissions should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords, followed by an introduction, a main body, an appendix (if any), and references. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level understandable for a non-expert reader. Authors are advised to write their papers clearly and carefully, to provide good motivation for their work, and to give a high-level overview of the arguments and techniques used to obtain the main results. Papers are likely to be rejected if the results are unable to be verified by the PC within the short review timeframe.

Conference begins

Optionally, if an author desires, a clearly-marked Supplementary Material can be appended to the submission. The Supplementary Material has no prescribed form or page limit and might be used, for instance, to provide background definitions, program code, additional experimental data, etc. The IACR encourages authors to include in their Supplementary Material responses to reviews from previous IACR events. Alternatively, the auxiliary supporting material can be submitted as a separate file from the submission. The reviewers are not required to read the auxiliary supporting material and submissions should be intelligible without it. The final published version of an accepted paper is expected to closely match the submitted version.

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

For papers that are accepted, the length of the proceedings version will be at most 30 pages including the references using Springer's standard fonts, font sizes, and margins. 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 for their work to be published in the proceedings. Moreover, authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference 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 work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop with published proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with published 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.

Articles will not be reviewed by reviewers who have a conflict of interest with at least one author of the submission. Submissions must adhere to the IACR Policy on Conflicts of Interest.

Program committee members are permitted to submit either one single-author paper, or at most two co-authored papers, or at most three co-authored papers all with students.

The program committee may choose to bestow a best paper award.

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, editorial board members for journal publications (Journal of Cryptology) and journal-conference hybrid publications (ToSC and TCHES), sub-reviewers, referees for journal publications, and individuals doing ad hoc reviews for a program chair or editor
2 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.
3 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.
4 Immediate family members include at least parents, children, siblings, spouse, or significant other.
5 The date relevant for a paper in submission is the date when it was submitted.
