has since established its presence in the cryptographic community. To
support the academic exchange, RSA conference offers a special
academic discount for registration, as well as a waiver for the
speakers presenting their papers that were accepted to CT-RSA 2012.

Instructions for Authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the
authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with
proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author
notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that
have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other
conference or workshop that has proceedings.

The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title,
a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The length of the submission
should be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices using
single column with at least 11pt size font, reasonably sized margins
and in total not more than 18 pages. (A total of 16 pages will be
applied to those papers accepted for publication in the proceedings.)
Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper
should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

The proceedings are going to be published by Springer-Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and available at the
conference. It is strongly preferred that submissions be processed in
LaTeX according to the instructions listed on, since these are
mandatory for the final papers. Submitted papers must be in PDF or
postscript format and should be submitted electronically. A detailed
description of the electronic submission procedure will be available

The authors of submitted papers guarantee that their paper will be
presented at the conference if their paper is accepted. Registration
fees will be waived for speakers.
