ACNS 2016

The 14th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network Security

London (Guildford), United Kingdom, June 19-22, 2016


The 14th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network Security will be organised by the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS) and held at the University of Surrey in London (Guildford), UK. The proceedings of ACNS 2016 will be published by Springer.

The conference seeks submissions presenting novel research on all technical aspects of applied cryptography, cyber security (incl. network and computer security) and privacy. This includes submissions from academia/industry on traditional and emerging topics and new paradigms in these areas, with a clear connection to real-world problems, systems or applications. Submissions may focus on the modelling, design, analysis (incl. security proofs and attacks), development (e.g. implementations), deployment (e.g. system integration), and maintenance (e.g. performance measurements, usability studies) of algorithms/protocols/standards/implementations/technologies/devices/systems standing in relation with applied cryptography, cyber security and privacy, while advancing or bringing new insights to the state of the art. Some topics of interest include but not limited to:

- Access control
- Applied cryptography
- Automated security analysis
- Biometric security/privacy
- Complex systems security
- Critical infrastructures
- Cryptographic primitives
- Cryptographic protocols
- Data protection
- Database/system security
- Digital rights management
- Email and web security
- Future Internet security
- Identity management
- IP protection
- Internet fraud, cybercrime
- Internet-of-Things security
- Intrusion detection
- Key management
- Malware
- Mobile/wireless/5G security
- Network security protocols
- Privacy/anonymity, PETs
- Pervasive security
- Security in e-commerce
- Security in P2P systems
- Security in grid systems
- Cloud security/privacy
- Security/privacy metrics
- Trust management
- Ubiquitous security/privacy
- Human factors in security
- Usability in security/privacy

Submission 10 February 2016, 23:59 GMT
Notification 27 March 2016
Final version 02 April 2016

Instructions for authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose. Each submission must begin with a title, author names and affiliations, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. All submissions must follow the original LNCS format (see with a page limit of 18 pages (incl. references) for the main part (reviewers are not required to read beyond this limit) and 30 pages in total. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. Any paper co-authored by at least one full-time student who will present the paper at the conference is eligible for the best student paper award (the eligibility should be mentioned upon submission). Papers should be submitted electronically via
