•Secret-key cryptography (block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions, MAC, etc)
•Public-keycryptography(identcation protocols, digital signatures, encryption, etc)
•Design of cryptographic schemes
•Anonymity (electronic commerce and payment, electronic voting, etc)
•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.
