Instructions for paper submission
The Workshop welcomes original papers from academic, government, and industry contributors dealing with the above or related issues. Papers which describe ongoing research or provide an excellent surveying work are welcome too. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough a blind review by at least three reviewers.
The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, 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 not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
As for all previous EuroPKI events, it is planned that accepted papers are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Therefore we require that submissions follow the LNCS guidelines (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs) with a total page limit of 16 pages including references and appendices. Up to 6 pages of additional supporting information may be provided, but committee members will read this information at their discretion, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within the 16 page LNCS limit.
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with proceedings.
Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be available at http://www.iit.cnr.it/EUROPKI09 Submissions must conform to this procedure. Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not be considered. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
