Scope The Tenth Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks (SCN 2016) aims to bring together researchers in the field of cryptography and information security, practitioners, developers, and users to foster cooperation, exchange techniques, tools, experiences and ideas. The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects of cryptography and information security. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research of theoretical and practical impact, including concepts, techniques, applications and practical experiences. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. Topics All topic areas related to cryptography and information security are of interest and in scope. Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:
  • Anonymity and Privacy
  • Applied Cryptography and Implementations
  • Authentication, Identification and Access Control
  • Block and Stream Ciphers
  • Complexity-Theoretic Cryptography
  • Cloud Computing Security
  • Cryptanalysis
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Cryptographic Hash Functions
  • Cryptographic and Security Protocols
  • Digital Signatures and Message Authentication Codes
  • Distributed Systems Security
  • Formal Security Methods
  • Information-Theoretic Security
  • Network, Web and Wireless Security
  • Public-Key Encryption
  • Physical Cryptography
  • Security Architectures and Models
  • Software and Systems Security
Submissions Authors are invited to submit electronically (PDF format) a non-anonymous extended abstract. The extended abstract should be typeset using 11-point or larger fonts, in a single-column, single-space (between lines) format and have reasonable margins. Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submissions will be treated as confidential, and will only be disclosed to the committee and their chosen sub-referees. The submission should begin with a title, followed by the names, affiliations and contact information of all authors, and a short abstract. The length of the submission should be at most 14 pages excluding the title page, bibliography, and appendices. Within these 14 pages the submission should clearly indicate the results achieved, their significance, and their relation to other work in the area. Referees are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to a journal or to any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Best Paper award All submissions are eligible for the Best Paper award. The committee may decide to split the award between multiple papers, or to decline to make an award. Presentation Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Proceedings The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

This event is organized in cooperation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research.
