Call For Papers
Cryptographers' Track RSA Conference 2003
April 13-17, 2003, San Francisco

Following the success of the two previous editions, the Cryptographers' Track at RSA Conference 2003 (CT-RSA 2003) will be run as an anonymously refereed conference with proceedings. The proceedings of CT-RSA 2001 and CT-RSA 2002 were published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series as LNCS 2020 and LNCS 2271, respectively.

Original research papers pertaining to all aspects of cryptography as well as tutorials are solicited. Submissions may present theory, techniques, applications and practical experience on topics including, but not limited to: fast implementations, secure electronic commerce, network security and intrusion detection, formal security models, comparison and assessment, tamper-resistance, certification and time-stamping, cryptographic data formats and standards, encryption and signature schemes, public key infrastructure, protocols, elliptic curve cryptography, cryptographic algorithm design and cryptanalysis, discrete logarithm and factorization techniques, lattice reduction, and provable security.

Importants dates:

Submission deadline: October 1, 2002
Acceptance notification: November 1, 2002
Proceedings version: November 17, 2002

Instructions for authors:

The program committee invites tutorials and research contributions in the broad area of applications and theory of cryptography. Correspondence, including submissions, will take place entirely via e-mail. All submissions will be blind refereed. To make a submission, please send two separate e-mail messages to marc.joye@gemplus.com.

The first message must be in ASCII format. It should include information on:

  1. The title of the submission.
  2. The names and affiliations of authors.
  3. The e-mail, telephone and facsimile numbers of the contact author.

The second message should contain the submission itself:

  1. The submission must be prepared in a way suitable for blind refereeing; the first page should contain the title of the submission, but must not contain the names or affiliations of the authors.
  2. The submission should be prepared using 11-point font or larger, with at most 12 A4/US-letter pages (excluding the bibliography and clearly marked appendices) and at most 18 pages in total. (Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX2e in preparing submissions, which would facilitate the production of the final proceedings, especially the electronic version of the proceedings.)
  3. Page format for submissions is PostScript (e.g. obtained using dvips) or PDF.
  4. The file may be compressed using "gzip" or "zip", and then encoded using "uuencode".


The proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and should be available at the conference. Clear instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. For an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, the authors of the paper must guarantee that at least one of the co-authors will attend the conference and deliver the talk (registration fees will be waived for the co-author delivering the talk).
