PQCrypto 2016 : 7th International Conference on Post-Quantum Cryptography
Conference Series : Post-Quantum Cryptography
Call For Papers
******* CALL FOR PAPERS: PQCrypto 2016 ********
Seventh International Conference on Post-Quantum
Cryptography, Fukuoka, Japan, February 24-26, 2016
The aim of PQCrypto is to serve as a forum for
researchers to present results and exchange ideas
on the topic of cryptography in an era with large-
scale quantum computers. The conference will be
preceded by a winter school on February 22-23, 2016.
Original research papers on all technical aspects
of cryptographic research related to post-quantum
cryptography are solicited. The topics include
(but are not restricted to):
- Cryptosystems that have the potential to be safe
against quantum computers such as: hash-based
signature schemes, lattice-based cryptosystems,
code-based cryptosystems, multivariate cryptosystems
and quantum cryptographic schemes;
- Classical and quantum attacks including side-
channel attacks on post-quantum cryptosystems;
- Security models for the post-quantum era.
Instructions to authors:
Accepted papers will be published in Springer's
LNCS series. The length of the submission must
be at most 12 pages, excluding references and
appendices, in a single column format, in 11pt
fonts and with reasonable margins.
If the submission is accepted, the length of the
final version will be at most 20 pages including
references and appendices, in the llncs class format.
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work
that any of the authors has published in a journal
or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has
submitted/is planning to submit before the author
notification deadline to a journal or other
conferences/workshops that have proceedings.
The submission should begin with a title, the
authors' names and affiliations, a short abstract,
and a list of key words, and its introduction
should summarize the contributions of the paper
at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.
Submissions ignoring these guidelines may be rejected
without further consideration.
Best paper award: The Program Committee may select
one outstanding paper for the best paper award.
The initial submission deadline is October 7, 2015.
Papers submitted by this deadline may be in draft
form but must include a title and an abstract.
The final submission deadline is October 14.
Authors who submitted a paper by the October 7
deadline will be permitted to revise their papers
anytime before the final submission deadline.
Initial submission deadline: October 7, 2015
Final submission deadline: October 14, 2015
