SCN 2022

  Thirteenth Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks
  September 12-14, 2022, Amalfi, Italy


The Thirteenth Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks (SCN 
2022) aims to bring together researchers in the field of cryptography 
and information security, practitioners, developers, and users to foster 
cooperation, exchange techniques, tools, experiences and ideas. The 
conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry 
presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects of 
cryptography and information security. The primary focus is on original, 
high quality, unpublished research of theoretical and practical impact, 
including concepts, techniques, applications and practical experiences.  
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have 
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a 
conference/workshop with proceedings.

The intention of the organisers is to hold a physical event.
However, the SCN may switch to a hybrid/virtual mode whenever required 
by the National or local authorities or if deemed necessary.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be 
presented at the conference. In any case, speakers who may not feel 
comfortable in travelling at the time of the conference will be able to 
present their work remotely.

All topic areas related to cryptography and information security are of 
interest and in scope. Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:
Anonymity and Privacy
Applied Cryptography and Implementations
Authentication, Identification and Access Control
Block and Stream Ciphers
Complexity-Theoretic Cryptography
Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain
Cryptographic Hash Functions
Cryptographic Protocols
Digital Signatures and Message Authentication Codes
Distributed Systems Security
Elliptic-Curve Cryptography
Formal Security Methods
Information-Theoretic Security
Post-quantum Cryptography
Public-Key Encryption
Physical Cryptography

Authors are invited to submit electronically (PDF format) a 
non-anonymous extended abstract. We strongly encourage to typeset the 
extended abstract using Springer's LNCS LaTeX package with no changes to 
the style.
The submission should begin with a title, followed by the names, 
affiliations and contact information of all authors, and a short 
abstract. The length of the submission should be at most 24 pages, 
including bibliography but excluding clearly marked appendices. Within 
these 24 pages, the submission should clearly indicate the results 
achieved, their significance, and their relation to other work in the 
area. Referees are not required to read appendices; the paper should be 
intelligible without them. Submissions must not substantially duplicate 
work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has 
submitted in parallel to a journal or to any other conference or 
workshop with proceedings.

Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines risk rejection 
without consideration of their merits.  All submissions will be treated 
as confidential, and will only be disclosed to the committee and their 
chosen sub-referees.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the conference website.

The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science series.
