The Workshop welcomes original papers from academic, government, and
industry contributors dealing with the above or related issues. Papers which
describe ongoing research or provide an excellent surveying work are welcome
too. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough blind review by at
least three reviewers.

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 key words, and its introduction should
summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a
non-specialist reader. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk
rejection without consideration of their merits.

Pre-proceedings will be made available at the workshop. As for all previous
EuroPKI events, it is planned that accepted papers are published by Springer
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Therefore we require
that submissions follow the LNCS guidelines (see  with a total page limit of 16 pages
including references and appendices.  

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors
has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference
or workshop with formally published proceedings. Information about
submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that
purpose. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or
workshop with proceedings. 

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. A detailed
description of the electronic submission procedure will be available at
Submissions must conform to this procedure. Late submissions and
non-electronic submissions will not be considered. Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
