Call For Papers



Advances in Secure Electronic Voting Schemes 2019
in association with Financial Crypto '19
St. Kitts, 22 February 2019

Paper Submission Date: 16 November 2018 (no extension)


Financial Crypto '19:


Elections are the foundations of democracy and they have been the target for attack since the dawn of democracy. Over the last few decades the introduction of digital technologies to elections has opened up a raft of new attack vectors. Recently in the US there is discussion of placing voting technologies on the list of national, critical infrastructures. Secure voting protocols, in particular so-called end-to-end verifiable schemes, have been a hot topic of research for the last decade or so. Voting poses many challenges: the precise characterization of subtle properties including verifiability and coercion resistance, accountability etc. and the design and analysis of schemes providing these properties in a complex, hostile environment. The field requires a deep understanding of modern crypto and information security but is also highly interdisciplinary, requiring understanding of the role of humans, physical components, procedures, legal and regulatory aspects etc.



Papers should contain original research in any area related to electronic voting technologies, verifiable elections, and related concerns. Example topics include but are not limited to:
In-person voting systems
Remote/Internet voting systems
Voter registration and authentication systems
Procedures for ballot and election auditing
Cryptographic (or non-cryptographic) verifiable election schemes
Attacks on existing systems
Designs of new systems
Formal or informal security or requirements analysis
Examination of usability and accessibility issues
Research on relevant regulations, standards and laws

Papers describing experiences deploying voting systems, conducting elections, or detecting and recovering from election problems are welcome, so long as they include enough rigorous analysis to constitute original research.

Submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, correctness, and clarity.

The workshop solicits submissions of manuscripts that represent significant and novel research contributions. Submissions must not substantially overlap with works that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.

Submissions should follow the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format and should be no more than 15 pages including references and well-marked appendices. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Authors who seek to submit their works to journals may opt-out by publishing an extended abstract only.

Short papers with a length of maximal 8 pages, will also be accepted as submissions this year, and can be used to introduce work in progress, novel applications, and voting experiences. These submissions must be clearly marked "Short papers:".

Also "Systemization of Knowledge" papers will be accepted and have a page limit of 15 pages but *excluding* references. These should be marked "SoK:".

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind, and as such, must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references.
