Latest News: Student Stipends: Limited student stipends will be available to student presenters!


The 11th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network
Security (ACNS 2013) will be held in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The
conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research on all aspects of applied cryptography as
well as network security and privacy. Submissions in emerging areas of
security including cloud security, secure infrastructure for big data
are highly encouraged. Papers describing novel paradigms, original
directions, or non-traditional perspectives are also encouraged. The
conference has two tracks: a research track and an industry track.
The industrial track will consist of presentations and tutorial
sessions, without formal proceedings. Submissions for either track
may focus on new visions, industrial challenges, case studies or
experimental reports related to implementation or deployment of
real-world systems or policies. Tutorials can cover current techniques
or best practices in applying cryptography to computer and information
systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Access control
- Applied cryptography
- Automated protocols analysis
- Biometric security and privacy
- Complex systems security
- Critical infrastructure protection
- Cryptographic primitives and protocols
- Data protection
- Database and system security
- Digital rights management
- Email and web security
- Identity management
- Intellectual property protection
- Internet fraud
- Intrusion detection and prevention
- Key management
- Malware
- Network security protocols
- Privacy, anonymity, and untraceability
- Privacy-enhancing technology
- Protection for the future Internet
- Secure mobile agents and mobile code
- Security and privacy in cloud and grid systems
- Security and privacy in smart grids
- Security and privacy in wireless networks
- Security and privacy metrics
- Security in distributed systems
- Security in e-commerce
- Security in P2P systems
- Security in pervasive/ubiquitous computing
- Trust management
- Usability and security

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that
have already been published, or are simultaneously submitted to
a journal or a conference with proceedings. All submissions should
be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author
names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be
at most 18 pages for research track and at most 8 pages for industry
track, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and
should follow Springer's LNCS style. Submissions are to be made
through the submission web page at
Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Papers must be received by the deadline of February 1, 2013 (11:59
Pacific Time). Authors should indicate whether their submission
should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper
co-authored by at least a full time student is eligible for this
award. At least one author of a accepted paper must attend the
conference. Papers accepted for the research track will be
published in proceedings published by Springer's LNCS and
available at the conference. Extended versions of selected best
papers will be invited for a special issue in the Journal of
Computer Security.
