Present CFP : 2019

The 17th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network Security (ACNS 2019) will be held in Bogotá, Colombia from June 5 to June 7, 2019. The conference will be organised by the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science of the Universidad del Rosario. The proceedings of ACNS 2019 will be published by Springer. This year, a 1000 EUR prize for the Best Student Paper award will be sponsored by Springer.

ACNS is an annual conference focusing on current developments that advance the areas of applied cryptography and its application to systems and network security. The goal is to represent both academic research works as well as developments in industrial and technical frontiers.

The conference seeks submissions presenting novel research on all technical aspects of applied cryptography, cyber security (including network and computer security) and privacy. Submissions may focus on the modelling, design, analysis (including security proofs and attacks), development (e.g. implementations), deployment (e.g. system integration), and maintenance (e.g. performance measurements, usability studies) of algorithms, protocols, standards, implementations, technologies devices, systems standing in relation with applied cryptography, cyber security and privacy, while advancing or bringing new insights to the state of the art. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Access control

Applied cryptography

Automated security analysis

Biometric security/privacy

Block chain and cryptocurrencies

Cloud security/privacy

Complex systems security

Critical infrastructure

Cryptographic primitives

Cryptographic protocols

Data protection

Database/system security

Digital rights management

Email, app and web security

Future Internet security

Human factors in security

Identity management

IP protection

Internet fraud, cybercrime

Internet-of-Things security

Intrusion detection

Key management


Mobile/wireless/5G security

Network security protocols

Privacy/anonymity, PETs

Security in e-commerce

Security in grid systems

Security in P2P systems

Security/privacy metrics

Trust management

Ubiquitous security/privacy

Usability in security/privacy


Submission: 22 January 2019 23:59 AOE (Anywhere on Earth)

Notification: 22 March 2019

Final Version: 5 April 2019


Instructions for authors: Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose. Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. All submissions must follow the original LNCS format (see with a page limit of 18 pages (incl. references) for the main part (reviewers are not required to read beyond this limit) and 30 pages in total. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. Any paper co-authored by at least one full-time student who will present the paper at the conference is eligible for the best student paper award (the eligibility will be clarified with authors of accepted papers following the notification). Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format through EasyChair (link will be provided soon). Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX.
