2nd International Workshop on Modern Cryptography and Security Engineering http://mocrysen2013.inria.fr/ 2--6 September 2013 Regensburg, Germany Preliminary Call For Papers ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To be held in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2013 - http://www.ares-conference.eu). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT DATES Submission deadline: April 30th, 2013 Author Notification: May 31st, 2013 Author Registration: June 4th, 2013 LNCS Proceedings Version: June 11th, 2013 Conference: September 2nd-6th, 2013 AIMS & SCOPE The Second International Workshop on Modern Cryptography and Security Engineering (co-located with the International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security) aims to bring together researchers working in theoretical aspects of modern cryptography (including but not restricted to design and analysis of symmetric-key primitives and cryptosystems, block and stream ciphers, hash functions and MAC algorithms, efficient implementations and analysis of public-key cryptosystems, public-key signatures, threshold schemes) with professionals working on applied aspects of security engineering, particularly people involved in standardization and in industrial deployment of cryptography (encryption schemes for databases and related security, cryptography in wireless applications, hardware for cryptanalysis, digital signatures, FPGA and smart cards security). The main goal of the workshop is to strengthen the dialogue between these two groups, which is currently perceived to be weak. Ultimately, we aim to continue bridging the gap between what academic cryptographers believe should be the goals of cryptographic design and what is actually implemented in the real world. MoCrySEn intends to provide a better understanding of real-world cryptographic issues to the theoretical community, helping to inform their research and set new research challenges for the theoretical community and enable practitioners to develop a clearer view of the current state-of-the-art in cryptographic research and what it offers to practitioners. The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to: - Symmetric-key cryptography - Public-key cryptography - Secret-sharing cryptography - Algorithmic cryptanalysis - Database encryption - Public-key signatures - Software and hardware implementation of cryptographic algorithms - Hardware security - Cryptographic schemes for mobile devices - Interaction between cryptographic theory and implementation issues LOCATION The conference will take place in the University of Regensburg, Regensburg in Germany ORGANIZATION Program Chairs Dimitris E.

In addition, submitted papers must conform to the "Springer LNCS Series" format http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html and they must not exceed more than 12 pages, excluding well-marked appendices and bibliography. 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. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation and clarity of exposition. Contact author must provide the following information at the ARES conference system: paper title, authors names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the workshop. For any questions, regarding the submission procedure please contact the workshop chairs. MoCrySEn papers will be submitted through the ARES conference system (named ConfDriver) and more details will be available in the workshop's website. PROCEEDINGS All accepted papers of the workshop will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) with IFIP logo (indexed by EI) joint with the proceedings of the CD-ARES conference. The proceedings will be available at the workshop. At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the ARES 2013 site and present the paper at the workshop. CONTACT For any related question, please contact the workshop chairs.
