Call For Papers

The conference Selected Areas in Cryptography 2014 (SAC 2014) will be held at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on August 14-15, 2014.

Authors are encouraged to submit original papers related to the following themes for the SAC 2014 conference. Note that the first three are traditional SAC areas and the fourth topic is intended to be the special focus for this year's conference.

1. Design and analysis of symmetric key primitives and cryptosystems, including block and stream ciphers, hash function, MAC algorithms, cryptographic permutations, and Authenticated Encryption Schemes.
2. Efficient implementations of symmetric and public key algorithms.
3. Mathematical and algorithmic aspects of applied cryptology.
4. Algorithms for cryptography, cryptanalysis and their complexity analysis.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop that has proceedings. IACR reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions and the IACR policy on irregular submissions will be strictly enforced. For further details, see

Instructions for Authors

- Papers must be submitted electronically. Details about the submission process will be given on the conference web site.
- The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references.
- The length of the submission should be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices. It should be in single-column format, use at least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. The total length should not exceed 18 pages.
- The submission must be written in English, should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them.
- As the conference proceedings will be published by Springer, we recommend that the submission be typeset using LaTeX and the LNCS style available from the Springer web site . Submissions should be in PDF (a .pdf file) or PostScript (a .ps file) format.
- If at all possible, the paper should use Type 1 (outline) fonts rather than Type 3 (bitmap) fonts.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Neither late submissions, submissions by email, nor hardcopy submissions will be accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop.

For important dates:

Paper submission deadline: May 28 2014, 23:59 EST
Notification of decision: July 7, 2014
Preproceedings version deadline: July 28, 2014
Conference: August 14-15, 2014
