[DMANET] Final Call for Papers

PaTAISC 2018

Workshop on Practical and Theoretical Aspects of Information Security and
Cryptology in the framework of

20th International Symposium on Symbolic
and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing

Timisoara, Romania
September 20-23, 2018

=== Aim ===

Information security concepts such as confidentiality, integrity,
and nonrepudiation are fundamental elements of (cyber) security issues.
These concepts are achieved with cryptographic protocols. They have an
important role to achieve information security concepts in real world. Those

are nice applications of number theory, algebraic geometry, information
and so on. Moreover, formal verification of cryptographic protocols is an
interesting and important topic in security. This special session is
intended to
foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art research in the areas of
information security and cryptology. The focus is given to the foundations
cryptography, protocol design, efficient implementations of cryptographic
protocols and formal verification. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

+ Cyber security
+ Formal verification of protocols
+ Symmetric cryptography
+ Public key cryptography
+ Post-quantum cryptography
+ Blockchain and cryptocurrencies
+ Cryptographic computations
+ Applied cryptography
+ Software/Hardware implementations
+ Cryptographic hardware and embedded systems
+ Information security
+ Network security
+ Privacy and trust
+ Access control
+ Public key infrastructure

== Paper submission ==
Papers (up to 6 pages in the two-column IEEE CPS Conference Style format or
extended abstracts (up to 2 pages) must be electronically submitted using
submission system accessible on Easy Chair.

=== Important Dates ===

24 June 2018 : Submission of papers
30 July 2018 : Notification of acceptance
1 September 2018 : Revised papers according to the reviews

Moreover, extended versions of the papers accepted and presented at the
workshop will be considered as a special issue in the International Journal
Information Security Science.
Other possibilities for publication will be announced during the workshop.
