Instructions for paper submission

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 a 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 to have post-proceedings 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.

Authors should note that, after the Workshop, a Special Issue of EuroPKI’2011 with extended versions of the best workshop papers will be published in the Computers & Mathematics with Applications journal, Elsevier. The papers included in this special issue will undergo a separate review round.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. 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.
