ACNS 2020 -- Call for Papers
22-25 June 2020
Rome, Italy

First submission deadline: 9 Sept 2019
Second submission deadline: 20 Jan 2020

The 18th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network Security (ACNS 2020) will be held in Rome, Italy on 22-25 June 2020. The conference will be organised by the Computer Security group at Sapienza University. The proceedings of ACNS 2020 will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.

ACNS is an annual conference focusing on current developments that advance the areas of applied cryptography and its application to systems and network security. The goal is to represent both academic research works as well as developments in industrial and technical frontiers.

The conference seeks submissions presenting novel research on all technical aspects of applied cryptography, cyber security (including network and computer security) and privacy. Submissions may focus on the modelling, design, analysis (including 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.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

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

Besides the main conference, ACNS also seeks workshop proposals. Each satellite workshop will provide a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of cybersecurity research. Papers accepted at the workshops will have post-proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series as well.

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. Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, 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 20 pages (incl. references) for the main part (reviewers are not required to read beyond this limit) and 30 pages in total. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. Paper rejected at the first round can be submitted at the second round (together with a response letter addressing the reviewers’ points). Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX. 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. To encourage promising students to publish their best results in ACNS, 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, with a cash reward of Euro 1000 sponsored by Springer.
