SCN 2020

Twelfth Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks

Call For Papers

September 14-16, 2020, Amalfi (SA), Italy
- NEW SUBMISSION DATE: *May 5th, 2020*

- NEW CONFERENCE DATES: *September 14-16, 2020*.
SCN is re-scheduled right after IEEE Euro S&P in Genova!

- COVID-19: We will keep monitoring the COVID-19 diffusion, following
all the directives that will come from the National or sovra-national
institutions, in the hope it will be over by September. In the
unfortunate case in which some attendees will not be able to
participate for reasons related to COVID-19, we will implement
measures like flexible cancellation policies ands, for authors,
alternative methods for presentations such as pre-recorded videos or
live streaming.

- Proceedings & Special Issue: Springer has formally approved our
request. Also this year SCN proceedings will be published by Springer.
A special issue of Journal of Computer Security will be devoted to
selected papers from SCN 2020.

The Twelfth Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks (SCN 2020) aims to bring together researchers in the field of cryptography and information security, practitioners, developers, and users to foster cooperation, exchange techniques, tools, experiences and ideas. The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects of cryptography and information security. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research of theoretical and practical impact, including concepts, techniques, applications and practical experiences. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings.

All topic areas related to cryptography and information security are of interest and in scope. Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:
Anonymity and Privacy
Applied Cryptography and Implementations
Authentication, Identification and Access Control
Block and Stream Ciphers
Complexity-Theoretic Cryptography
Cloud Computing Security
Cryptographic Hash Functions
Cryptographic and Security Protocols
Digital Signatures and Message Authentication Codes
Distributed Systems Security
Formal Security Methods
Information-Theoretic Security
Network, Web and Wireless Security
Public-Key Encryption
Physical Cryptography
Security Architectures and Models
Software and Systems Security

Authors are invited to submit electronically (PDF format) a non-anonymous extended abstract. The extended abstract should be typeset using 11-point or larger fonts, in a single-column, single-space (between lines) format and have reasonable margins. Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submissions will be treated as confidential, and will only be disclosed to the committee and their chosen sub-referees. The submission should begin with a title, followed by the names, affiliations and contact information of all authors, and a short abstract. The length of the submission should be at most 14 pages excluding the title page, bibliography, and appendices. Within these 14 pages the submission should clearly indicate the results achieved, their significance, and their relation to other work in the area. Referees are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to a journal or to any other conference or workshop with proceedings.

Papers can be submitted via EasyChair at the following address:

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

A selection of accepted papers will be invited for a special issue of Journal of Computer Security.

Submission: May 05, 2020, 23:59 GMT
Notification to authors: June 14, 2020
Camera-Ready Version: June 28, 2020
Conference: September 9-11, 2020

All submissions are eligible for the Best Paper award. The committee may
decide to split the award between multiple papers, or to decline to make
an award.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will
be presented at the conference.

In the unfortunate case in which some attendees will not be able to
participate for reasons related to COVID-19, we will implement
measures like flexible cancellation policies and alternative methods for
presentations such as pre-recorded videos or live streaming.
