Call For Papers

Keynote: Zvika Brakerski, Computer Science Department, Stanford University

Homomorphic Cryptography is one of the hottest topics in mathematics and computer science since Gentry presented the first construction of a fully homomorphic encryption scheme in 2009. Recently, a number of extensions to the original approach, as well as new paradigms have been proposed, creating a diverse basis for further theoretical research. On the other hand, we need research on practical applications of homomorphic encryption which is still less advanced. The cloud hype and different recent disclosures clearly show that there is a strong demand for secure delegation of computation. The technologies and techniques discussed in this workshop are a key to extend the range of applications that can be securely outsourced.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers with practitioners and industry to present, discuss and to share the latest progress in the field. We want to exchange ideas that address real-world problems with practical approaches and solutions.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

Implementation issues of homomorphic encryption schemes
Practical performance evaluations of homomorphic encryption schemes
Software architectures for encrypted applications
Platform and system integration for encrypted applications
Algorithmic primitives for encrypted applications
Encrypted search schemes
Encrypted e-payment solutions
Encrypted financial transactions
Encrypted applications in bio-informatics
Hybrid (partly encrypted) applications

Intended audience

Professionals, researchers and practitioners in the area of computer security and applied cryptography with an interest in practical applications of homomorphic encryption, encrypted computing, functional encryption and secure function evaluation, private information retrieval and searchable encryption.
Tentative Schedule

Submission deadline: 15. Jan. 2014
Workshop: 7. Mar. 2014


All accepted papers will be published in an LNCS volume (as part of the main FC '14 proceedings or collected in a subsidiary workshop proceedings). Submissions are limited to 12 pages including references and appendices. Authors are invited to submit anonymous versions of their papers for initial review via the submission server. Referees will do their best to avoid identification of authors of anonymous papers during the review process.
