Call For Papers

Instructions for ProvSec
Provable security is an important research area in modern cryptography. Cryptographic primitives or protocols without a rigorous proof cannot be regarded as secure even in practice. In fact, there are many schemes that were originally thought as secure but eventually broken, which clearly indicates the need of formal security assurance. With provable security, we are confident in using cryptographic schemes and protocols in various real-world applications. Meanwhile, schemes with provable security sometimes give only theoretical feasibility rather than a practical construction, and correctness of the proofs may be difficult to verify. ProvSec conference thus provides a platform for researchers, scholars and practitioners to exchange new ideas for solving these problems in the provable security area.

The first ProvSec conference was successfully held on Nov. 1-2, 2007 at the University of Wollongong, Australia and the proceedings were published in LNCS Vol. 4784. The second ProvSec conference was held in Shanghai, China on Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2008 and the proceedings were published in LNCS Vol. 5324. The third conference was held in Guangzhou, China on Nov. 11-13, 2009 and the proceedings were published in LNCS Vol.5848. The Fourth ProvSec was held in Malacca, Malaysia on October 13-15, 2010. The proceedings is published as an LNCS volume entitled "Provable Security" from Springer (Online).

Topics include all aspects of provable security for cryptographic primitives or protocols,and include but are not limited to the following areas:

•Cryptographic primitives
•Security notions, approaches, and paradigms
•Formal security model
•Secure cryptographic protocols and applications
•Provable secure block ciphers and hash functions
•Digital signatures
•Privacy and anonymity technologies
•Steganography and steganalysis
•Lattice-based security reductions
•Pairing-based provably secure cryptography
Instructions for authors
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel for consideration of any other journal, conference/workshop with proceedings. The submission should begin with a title followed by a short abstract and keywords. Submissions should have at most 12 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices, and at most 20 pages in total, using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. All submissions should be anonymous. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that at least one of the authors will attend the conference and present their paper.

Submission instructions
Papers must be submitted electronically through the submission web page. Electronic submissions must conform to the procedure described in the submission server and must be received by the deadline indicated below. Electronic submission via the described interface is the only form of submission considered.

Conference Proceedings
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
