Submission Server

Papers must be submitted via IACR submission server. The submission deadline is September 10, 2012, 8:00 UTC (17:00 JST).

Instruction to Authors

The submission should be at most 12 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices, using reasonable margins and 11pt fonts. The submitted paper should be self-contained and intelligible without appendices, as committee members are not required to read them. Authors are encouraged to prepare their submission following Springer's guidelines.

Submissions must be fully anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. The submission should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords, and the introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Submissions ignoring these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. If accepted, one of the authors is expected to present the paper at the conference.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere, or has submitted in parallel to any journal or any other conference/workshop with proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Submissions violating these rules will be rejected and may entail further consequences. IACR reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions and the IACR policy on irregular submissions will be strictly enforced.
