Present CFP : 2019

Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding information assurance, with a specific focus on financial, economic and commercial transaction security. Original works focusing on securing commercial transactions and systems are solicited; fundamental as well as applied real-world deployments on all aspects surrounding commerce security are of interest. Submissions need not be exclusively concerned with cryptography. Systems security, economic or behavioral perspectives, and interdisciplinary efforts are particularly encouraged.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

Access Control
Anonymity and Privacy
Applied Cryptography
Auctions and Mechanisms
Authentication and Identification
Behavioral Aspects of Security and Privacy
Certification and Audits
Cloud Computing and Data Outsourcing Security
Commercial Cryptographic Applications
Contactless Payment and Ticketing Systems
Digital Rights Management
Economics of Security and Privacy
Electronic Commerce Security
Electronic Crime and Underground Markets
Fraud Detection and Forensics
Game Theory for Security and Privacy
Identity Theft
Insider Threats
Legal and Regulatory Issues
Microfinance and Micropayments
Mobile Systems Security and Privacy
Phishing and Social Engineering
Privacy and Anonymity-enhancing Technologies
Reputation Systems
Risk Assessment and Management
Secure Banking and Financial Services
Smart Contracts and Financial Instruments
Smartcards, Secure Tokens and Secure Hardware
Social Networks Security and Privacy
Trust Management
Usability and Security
Virtual Goods and Virtual Economies
Voting Systems
Web Security
New this year: Since its founding in 1997, Financial Cryptography and Data Security has published research on digital currencies. With the explosion of interest in cryptocurrencies prompted by the introduction of Bitcoin, research papers on cryptocurrencies have appeared in both the main conference and, since 2014, the Workshop on Bitcoin and Blockchain Research. In recognition of this burgeoning field, the FC steering committee has decided to incorporate the workshop into the main conference as a new blockchain track. As such, Financial Cryptography and Data Security now serves as the premier venue for cryptocurrency and blockchain research. Topics of interest for the blockchain track include, but are not limited to:

Applications Using or Built on Top of Bitcoin
The Bitcoin Protocol and Extensions
Blockchain Applications
Case Studies (e.g., of adoption, attacks, forks, scams, …)
Cryptocurrency Adoption and Transition Dynamics
Digital Cash and Payment Systems
Distributed Ledgers
Economic and Monetary Aspects of Cryptocurrencies
Economics and/or Game Theoretic Analysis of Cryptocurrency Protocols
Forensics and Monitoring
Fraud Detection and Financial Crime Prevention
Legal, Ethical and Societal Aspects of (Decentralized) Virtual Currencies
Peer-to-Peer Networks
Permissioned and Permissionless Blockchains
Proof-of-work, -stake, -burn, and Virtual Mining
Real-world Measurements and Metrics
Regulation and Law Enforcement
Relation of Cryptocurrencies to Other Payment Systems
Transaction Graph Analysis
Usability and User Studies

The intent is that the blockchain track will not be in parallel to either the rest of the conference proper, nor to the workshops. Papers from the conference, whether in the blockchain track or not, will be presented from Monday to Thursday of the conference week, without parallel sessions to the extent possible. The workshops, as in previous years, will be held in parallel to each other on Friday.
