Call For Papers

Associated with 2016 Financial Cryptography and Data Security

Secure computation is becoming a key feature of future information systems. Distributed network applications and cloud architectures are at danger because lots of personal consumer data is aggregated in all kinds of formats and for various purposes. Industry and consumer electronics companies are facing massive threats like theft of intellectual property and industrial espionage. Public infrastructure has to be secured against sabotage and manipulation. A possible solution is encrypted computing: Data can be processed on remote, possibly insecure resources, while program code and data is encrypted all the time. This allows to outsource the computation of confidential information independently from the trustworthiness or the security level of the remote system. 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) *

Software architectures for encrypted applications
Platform and system integration for encrypted applications
Algorithmic primitives for encrypted applications
Hybrid (partly encrypted) applications
Hardware implementations of encrypted computing
Implementation of homomorphic encryption schemes
Practical performance evaluations of homomorphic encryption schemes
Practical aspects of functional encryption
Privacy-preserving set operations
Secure information sharing
Circuit transformation of algorithms
Obfuscation techniques
Encrypted search schemes
Encrypted e-payment solutions
Encrypted financial transactions
Encrypted applications in bio-informatics

* 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.

* Schedule *

Submission Deadline: Nov. 16, 2015
Acceptance Notice: Jan. 16, 2016
Camera Ready Due: Jan. 31, 2016
Workshop: Feb. 22, 2016

* Submission *

Accepted submissions will be published in a Springer LNCS volume (as part of the main FC '16 proceedings or typically collected in a subsidiary workshop volume). Papers are limited to 12-16 pages including references and appendices. This year, we also encourage authors to submit Demos which are limited to 6-8 pages and feature a presentation with an extensive code review. Authors are invited to submit their work via the EasyChair submission server
