CALL FOR PAPERS (Submissions due Feb 1, 2013) 2013 ACM Asia Public-Key Cryptography Workshop (AsiaPKC 2013) May 7, 2013, Hangzhou, China http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~shxu/acm-asiapkc13/ To be held in conjunction with 8th ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS 2013) May 8-10, 2013. Hangzhou, China. http://hise.hznu.edu.cn/asiaccs/index.html Public-key cryptography plays an essential role in processing various kinds of data while assuring different flavors of cryptographic properties. The theme of this workshop is focused on novel public-key cryptosystems and techniques that can be used to solve a wide range of real-life application problems. This workshop solicits original contributions on both applied and theoretic aspects of public-key cryptography. The proceedings will be published by ACM Press as conference proceedings in USB thumb drives and in ACM digital library (i.e., the same as how the proceedings of ACM AsiaCCS 2013 will be published). Final proceedings versions for regular papers will be 10 pages and for short papers will be 6 pages, both in ACM standard double-column format. Topics of interest to the workshop include, but at not limited to: --Applied public-key cryptography for solving emerging application problems --Provably-secure public-key primitives and protocols --Key management for, and by, public-key cryptosystems --Privacy-preserving cryptographic computations --Two-party and multi-party computations --Homomorphic public-key cryptosystems --Attributed-based and functional public-key cryptography --Digital signatures with special properties --System security properties of public-key cryptography --Post-quantum public-key cryptography --Fast implementation of public-key cryptosystems Important dates: Submission due: Feb 1, 2013 Notification: Feb 27, 2013 Proceedings version due: March 10, 2013 See the workshop website (http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~shxu/acm-asiapkc13/) for more information.
