FC 2016 : Financial Cryptography
Conference Series : Financial Cryptography
Call For Papers
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:
Anonymity and Privacy
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 Cash and Payment Systems
Digital Rights Management
Economics of Security and Privacy
Electronic Commerce Security

The regular and short paper submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. In contrast, panel, workshop proposal, and poster submissions must include author names and affiliations.
Papers must be formatted in standard LNCS format and submitted as PDF files. Submissions in other formats will be rejected. All papers must be submitted electronically according to the instructions and forms found here and at the submission site. For each accepted paper the conference requires at least one registration at the general or academic rate.
Authors may only submit work that does not substantially overlap with work that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication to a conference/workshop with proceedings or a journal. We consider double submission serious research fraud and will treat it as such. In case of doubt contact the program chairs for any clarifications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions should be uploaded through the conference submission website.
* Regular Research Papers
Research papers should describe novel, previously unpublished scientific contributions to the field, and they will be subject to rigorous peer review. Accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions are limited to 15 pages excluding references and appendices. A total page restriction may apply for the printed proceedings version. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the full papers should be intelligible without them. Regular papers must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references.
* Short Papers
Short papers are also subject to peer review, however, the intention is to encourage authors to introduce work in progress, novel applications and corporate/industrial experiences. Short papers will be evaluated with a focus on novelty and potential for sparking participants' interest and future research avenues. Short paper submissions are limited to 8 pages in standard LNCS format in total. The paper title for short papers should necessarily include the text "Short Paper." Accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings. Short papers must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references.
