7th International Conference on Cryptology AFRICACRYPT 2014
May 28,30, 2014, Marrakech, Morocco

Africacrypt is an Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptology. Africacrypt 2014 is organized by the ENSIAS School of Engineering and the University Mohamed V Souissi, Rabat, in cooperation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
The aim of Africacrypt 2014 is to provide an international forum for practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government from all over the world for a wide ranging discussion of all forms of cryptography and its applications.
The conference seeks original contributions in any area of cryptology or related elds. We welcome submissions about, but not limited to:
•Secret-key cryptography (block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions, MAC, etc)
•Secret-key cryptanalysis
•Public-keycryptography(identcation protocols, digital signatures, encryption, etc)
•Public-key cryptanalysis
•Cryptographic protocols
•Design of cryptographic schemes
•Security proofs
•Anonymity (electronic commerce and payment, electronic voting, etc)
•Information theory
•Foundations and complexity theory
•Elliptic curves, lattices and coding theory
•Efficient implementations and practical applications

Instructions for Authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Submissions will take place entirely via a web system.
All submissions will be blind reviewed. The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.
The final proceedings version will be a paper of at most 18 pages in the llncs style. The document submitted (excluding appendices) should correspond to what the authors expect to be published if their paper is accepted without modification. We therefore strongly recommend that authors check whether their paper (without appendices) wills t within the above llncs space constraints. Committee members are not required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within this length.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.


The proceedings with revised selected papers will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and will be available at the conference.
Clear instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
