Call for Papers Financial Cryptography and Data Security '09 http://fc09.ifca.ai/cfp.html Thirteenth International Conference February 23-26, 2009 Accra Beach Hotel & Resort Barbados Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration and debate regarding information assurance in the context of finance and commerce. The conference covers all aspects of securing transactions and systems. Submissions focusing on both fundamental and applied real-world deployments are solicited. The goal of the conference is to bring security and cryptography researchers and practitioners together with economists, bankers, implementers and policy-makers. Intimate and colorful by tradition, the FC program features invited talks, academic presentations, technical demonstrations and panel discussions. Original papers, surveys and presentations on all aspects of financial and commerce security are invited. Submissions must have bearing on financial and commerce security issues, but can be inter-disciplinary in nature and need not be exclusively concerned with cryptography. Topics of interest include: Anonymity and Privacy Auctions and Audits Authentication and Identification Biometrics Certification and Authorization Commercial Cryptographic Applications Digital Cash and Payment Systems Digital Incentive and Loyalty Systems Digital Rights Management Economics of Information Security Financial Regulation and Reporting Fraud Detection Game Theoretic Approaches to Security Identity Theft, Spam, Phishing and Social Engineering Infrastructure Design Legal and Regulatory Issues Microfinance and Micropayments Monitoring, Management and Operations Reputation Systems RFID-Based and Contactless Payment Systems Risk Assessment and Management Secure Banking and Financial Web Services Securing Emerging Computational Paradigms Security and Risk Perceptions and Judgments Smart Cards and Secure Tokens Transactions and Contracts Trust Management Underground-Market Economics Virtual Economies Voting Systems Important Dates Paper Submission October 17, 2008 Panel Submission October 17, 2008 Author Notification December 8, 2008 Conference Dates February 23-26, 2009 Submission Instructions Submission Categories Submissions are invited in the following categories: (1) regular papers, (2) short papers and (3) panel proposals. In accordance with previous years, we anticipate that accepted papers will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the conference. Hence, submissions must be formatted in the standard LNCS format. Regular papers should describe novel scientific contributions to the field, and they will be subject to rigorous peer review. (15 page limit). Short papers are also invited. While short papers are also subject to peer review, the intention is to encourage authors to introduce work in progress, novel applications and corporate/industrial experiences. Short papers will be evaluated with a focus on novelty and potential for sparking participants' interest and future research avenues. Short paper submissions are limited to 6 pages. We especially would like to encourage submissions of panel proposals. These should include a very brief description of the panel topics, as well as of the prospective panelists. Accepted panel sessions will be presented at the conference. Morover, each participant will contribute a two-page abstract to be published in the conference proceedings. Please contact the organizers if you would like to further discuss the suitability of a certain topic. Panel submissions should be up 2 pages long. Preparation Instructions Authors may only submit work that does not substantially overlap with work that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication to a conference with proceedings or a journal. Submissions to the research papers, systems/application presentation categories, and surveys must be received by the due date. Papers must be formatted in standard PostScript or PDF format. Submissions in other formats will be rejected. All papers must be submitted electronically according to the instructions and forms found on this web site and at the submission site. Both anonymous and non-anonymous submissions will be accepted. Papers must include on their first page the title of the paper, a brief abstract, and a list of topical keywords. As in previous years, we anticipate that the conference proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the conference, so the submissions must be formatted in the standard LNCS format (15 page limit). Authors of accepted submissions will be required to complete and sign an IFCA copyright form. A pre-proceedings volume containing preliminary versions of the papers will be distributed at the conference. The online submission server will be operational nearer to the submission date. The Rump Session FC'09 will also include the popular "rump session" held on one of the evenings in an informal, social atmosphere. The rump session is a program of short (5-7 minute), informal presentations on works in progress, off-the-cuff ideas, and any other matters pertinent to the conference. Any conference attendee is welcome to submit a presentation to the Rump Session Chair (to be announced at the conference). This submission should consist of a talk title, the name of the presenter, and, if desired, a very brief abstract. Submissions may be sent via e-mail, or submitted in person through the Monday of the conference.
