Call for Papers and Presentations
Financial Cryptography '04
9-12 February 2004
Key West, Florida, USA
Conference Web site: http://ifca.ai/fc04
Conference: 9-12 February 2004
Submission deadline 1 September 2003 23h59 GMT
Author notification 15 November 2003
Pre-proceedings version due 15 December 2003
Original papers and presentations on all aspects of financial-data
security and secure digital commerce are solicited for submission to
the Eight Annual Conference on Financial Cryptography (FC '04). FC '04
will bring together researchers and practitioners in the financial,
legal, cryptologic, and data-security fields to foster cooperation and
exchange of ideas.
In addition to novel scientific research as in previous years, the
program for FC '04 will include sessions on digital finance and
economics and on secure financial systems and digital-cash
architectures. For the systems and finance sessions, submissions must
have a visible bearing on financial-security issues, but need not be
exclusively concerned with cryptography or security. Possible topics
for submission to the various sessions include:
Research Sessions: Submissions accepted to the research portion of the
conference will be published in full in the conference proceedings (up
to 15 pages in total).
Systems and Finance Sessions: For the systems and finance portions of
the conference, the primary emphasis is on presentation. For accepted
submissions in these sessions, a one-page abstract will be published
in the conference proceedings.
Submissions to the systems portion of the conference may include
architectural descriptions and/or accounts of industry or technical
experience with implementations of secure digital commerce systems.
Presentations may concern commercial systems, academic prototypes, or
open-source projects for any of the topics listed above. Where
appropriate, software or hardware demonstrations are encouraged as
part of the presentations in these sessions.
Contributions to the systems and the finance sessions of the
conference need not necessarily include novel contributions in the
realm of scientific research, nor must they concern financial
cryptography or security exclusively. They must, however, reflect
careful thought and effort and provide valuable, up-to-date experience
that is relevant to practitioners in the fields of financial
cryptography and security. Submissions to these sessions may consist
of a short summary of work of one to six (1-6) pages in length.
Instructions for Authors: Complete papers (or complete extended
abstracts) must be received by 23h59 GMT on 1 September 2003. All
papers must be submitted electronically. (In exceptional
circumstances, paper submissions can be accepted, but special
arrangements must be made with the program chair prior to 1 August
2003.) Papers must be formatted in standard PostScript, PDF format, or
MS Word, and should be submitted electronically according to the
instructions at http://www.ifca.ai/fc04/ prior to the deadline.
Submissions in other formats will be rejected. Papers should be
submitted electronically according to the instructions at
Papers may be submitted through the submission form available at
Submissions to the research portion of the conference may include at
most fifteen (15) single-spaced standard pages in length. Submissions
to the systems and finance portions of the conference must be short
summaries of work consisting of at most six (6) single-spaced standard
pages in length.
(As indicated above, for accepted submissions in these latter
sessions, a corresponding one-page abstract will be published in the
conference proceedings.) Author names and affiliations on submissions
must be explicit. In other words, submitted papers should not be
anonymized. Submissions must include on the first page the title of
the paper, the names and affiliations of all author, a brief abstract,
a list of topical keywords, and a conference-session category
(research, finance, or systems). Papers must describe original work.
For the research portion of the conference, submission of previously
published material and simultaneous submission of papers to other
conferences or workshops with proceedings is not permitted. Authors of
research papers found to be doubly submitted risk having all their
submissions withdrawn from consideration as well as other appropriate
The conference proceedings containing all accepted submissions will be
published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series after the conference. A pre-proceedings containing
preliminary versions of the papers will be distributed at the
conference. For accepted submissions, at least one author must attend
the conference and present. In addition, authors of accepted
submissions must prepare the pre-proceedings and final proceedings
version - a full paper or one-page abstract, as appropriate -- and
sign an IFCA copyright form <http://www.ifca.ai/documents/copyright.html>.
Questions about paper or panel submissions should be directed to the
program chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
