Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international
forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration,
and debate regarding information assurance, with a specific focus on
financial, economic and commercial transaction security. Original works
focusing on securing commercial transactions and systems are solicited;
fundamental as well as applied real-world deployments on all aspects
surrounding commerce security are of interest. Submissions need not be
exclusively concerned with cryptography. Systems security, economic or
financial modeling, and, more generally, inter-disciplinary efforts are
particularly encouraged.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

Anonymity and Privacy
Applications of Game Theory to Security
Auctions and Audits
Authentication and Identification
Behavioral Aspects of Security and Privacy
Certification and Authorization
Cloud Computing Security
Commercial Cryptographic Applications
Contactless Payment and Ticketing Systems
Data Outsourcing Security
Digital Rights Management
Digital Cash and Payment Systems
Economics of Security and Privacy
Electronic Crime and Underground-Market Economics
Electronic Commerce Security
Fraud Detection
Identity Theft
Legal and Regulatory Issues
Microfinance and Micropayments
Mobile Devices and Applications Security and Privacy
Phishing and Social Engineering
Reputation Systems
Risk Assessment and Management
Secure Banking and Financial Web Services
Smartcards, Secure Tokens and Secure Hardware
Smart Grid Security and Privacy
Social Networks Security and Privacy

Conference March 3-7, 2014


Submissions are sought in the following categories:
(i) regular papers (15 pg LNCS format excluding references and
appendices and maximum of 18 pg, i.e., 3 pg of references/appendices),
(ii) short papers (8 pg LNCS format in total),
(iii) panels and workshop proposals (2pg), and
(iv) posters (1 pg).

Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the
full papers should be intelligible without them. The regular and
short paper submissions must be anonymous, with no author names,
affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. In contrast,
panel, workshop proposal, and poster submissions must include author
names and affiliations.

Papers must be formatted in standard LNCS format and submitted as PDF
files. Submissions in other formats will be rejected. All papers must be
submitted electronically according to the instructions and forms found
here and at the submission site. For each accepted paper the conference
requires at least one registration at the general or academic rate.

Authors may only submit work that does not substantially overlap with
work that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication
to a conference/workshop with proceedings or a journal. We consider
double submission serious research fraud and will treat it as such.
In case of doubt contact the program chairs for any clarifications at (

IMPORTANT THIS YEAR: Abstracts must be registered by October 25 for both
short and regular research papers. Papers whose abstract has not been
submitted in time will not be considered. Registering abstracts that are
currently under review at other venues is allowed, provided that the
paper is either no longer under review at another venue or withdrawn
from consideration before the submission deadline (November 2).

Regular Research Papers

Research papers should describe novel, previously unpublished scientific
contributions to the field, and they will be subject to rigorous
peer review. Accepted submissions will be included in the conference
proceedings to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions are limited to 15
pages excluding references and maximum of 18 pages (i.e., 3 pages of
references and appendices). Committee members are not required to read
the appendices, so the full papers should be intelligible without them.
Regular papers must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgements, or obvious references.

Short Papers

Short papers are also subject to peer review, however, the intention is
to encourage authors to introduce work in progress, novel applications
and corporate/industrial experiences. Short papers will be evaluated
with a focus on novelty and potential for sparking participants'
interest and future research avenues. Short paper submissions are
limited to 8 pages in standard LNCS format in total. The paper title
for short papers should necessarily include the text "Short Paper."
Short papers must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgements, or obvious references.

Panel Proposals

We especially would like to encourage submissions of panel proposals.
These should include a very brief description of the panel topics, as
well as of the prospective panelists. Accepted panel sessions will be
presented at the conference. Moreover, each participant will contribute
a one-page abstract to be published in the conference proceedings.
Please feel free to contact us directly if you would like to further
discuss the suitability of a certain topic. Panel submissions must not
be anonymous and should be up to 2 pages, sent to (


The poster session is the perfect venue to share a provocative opinion,
interesting established or preliminary work, or a cool idea that will
spark discussion. Poster presenters will benefit from a multi-hour
session to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive feedback
from attendees. Poster submissions should be a 1-page abstract (in
the same LNCS format) describing the poster. Please keep in mind that
the poster deadline is later than the main paper submission deadline.
The poster abstracts will be published in the proceedings. Poster
proposals must not be anonymous and should be sent to the posters chair
at (

Workshop Proposals

Proposals for workshops to be held at FC 2014 are also solicited. A
workshop can be full day or half day in length. Workshop proposals
should include: (i) a title, (ii) a call for papers, (iii) a brief
summary and justification - including how it would fit into the greater
FC scope, (iv) a (tentative) Program Committee and its Chair, (v)
one-paragraph biographies for key organizers, and (vi) the expected
(or previous - if workshop has been held in previous years) number of
submissions, participants and acceptance rates. Workshop proposals must
not be anonymous and should be sent to

The Rump Session

FC 2014 will also include the popular "rump session" held on one of
the evenings in an informal, social atmosphere. The rump session is
a program of short (5-7 minute), informal presentations on works in
progress, off-the-cuff ideas, and any other matters pertinent to the
conference. Any conference attendee is welcome to submit a presentation
to the Rump Session Chair (to be announced at the conference). This
submission should consist of a talk title, the name of the presenter,
and, if desired, a very brief abstract. Submissions may be sent via
e-mail, or submitted in person in the morning on the day of the session.

Student Stipends

We are pleased to announce the availability of enhanced financial
support for students attending FC14. We anticipate awarding student
stipends that would cover conference registration fees and reimburse
travel expenses up to $1,000. Preference will be given to students who
will be presenting at the conference or associated workshops, but all
student participants are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in
applying for stipend support, please email the FC2014 general chair at with subject line "student stipend" and a letter of
support from your home institution.
