CANS 2023 -- Call For Papers

October 31st -- November 2nd, 2023

*** Final Extended Submission Deadline: July 13, 2023 ***

The 22nd International Conference on Cryptology and Network Security
(CANS) spans current advances in all aspects of cryptology, data
protection, and network and computer security. The session proceedings
and recommendations will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series by Springer.

CANS 2023 will take place from October 31st to November 2nd , 2023,
in Augusta, Georgia, USA.



High quality papers on unpublished research and implementation
experiences may be submitted. All papers must be original and not
substantially duplicated work that has been published at, or is
simultaneously submitted to, a journal or another conference or
workshop. All submissions must be written in English and span no more
than 20 pages in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) format (a Springer template can be found in Overleaf),
including title, abstract, and bibliography. The introduction should
summarize the contributions of the paper at the level understandable
by a non-expert reader and explain the context to related work.

Submitted papers may contain supplementary material in the form of
well-marked appendices of any length. However, the main paper should
be intelligible without requiring the reader to consult supplementary
material. Submissions must be anonymous (no author names,
affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references). The conference
will also consider short papers of up to eight pages in the LNCS
format, excluding the bibliography, for results that are not yet fully
fleshed out or that simply require few pages to describe but still
make a significant contribution.

All submissions must be processed with LaTeX2e according to the
instructions given by Springer. Submitted manuscripts must be typeset
in plain Springer LNCS format, in particular without changing the font
size, margins or line spacing. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their
merits. Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via


At least one author of every accepted paper must register and pay the
full registration fee (non-student) for the conference by the early
registration deadline indicated by the organizers. Papers without a
registered author will be removed from the sessions. Authors must
present their own paper(s). Session proceedings, including all
accepted papers, will be published in LNCS and will be available at
the conference.


Submission Deadline: July 13, 2023 AoE (extended, final)
Paper Notification: August 10, 2023
Camera-Ready Deadline: August 30, 2023
