The 2nd ACM ASIA Public-Key Cryptography Workshop

(ASIAPKC 2014)

  Tuesday June 3, 2014, Kyoto, Japan

held in conjunction with The 9th ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS 2014)

(PDF) Public key cryptography plays an essential role in ensuring a variety of security properties of data processing of various kinds. The theme of this workshop is focused on novel public key cryptosystems for solving a wide range of real-life application problems. This workshop solicits original contributions on both applied and theoretic aspects of public key cryptography.

The proceedings will be published by ACM Press and appear in ACM digital library (as with the ACM ASIACCS 2014 and 1st ASIAPKC proceedings). See also ASIAPKC 2013 DBLP page as a reference. Submitted papers must be no longer than 10 pages excluding references and appendices, and no longer than 12 pages in total. Camera-ready version must be no longer than 10 pages in ACM's standard double-column format.

Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Applied public-key cryptography for solving emerging application problems
  • Provably-secure public-key primitives and protocols
  • Key management for, and by, public-key cryptosystems
  • Privacy-preserving cryptographic computations
  • Two-party and multi-party computations
  • Homomorphic public-key cryptosystems
  • Attributed-based and functional public-key cryptography
  • Digital signatures with special properties
  • System security properties of public-key cryptography
  • Post-quantum public-key cryptography
  • Fast implementation of public-key cryptosystems

Submission

   

Submission Page: Online Submission has been closed.

Instructions for authors:

Submission must be written in English. Submitted papers must be no longer than 10 pages excluding references and appendices, and no longer than 12 pages in total. Committee members are not obligated to read appendices, and a paper must be intelligible without the appendices. Submitted papers must be in the double-column ACMSIG Proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates, both Option 1 and Option 2 on the page are fine) with page numbers marked. No changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the style file. The workshop reserves the right to request the source files for a submission to verify compliance with these requirements. Submitted papers must be PDF files.

Submitted papers must be appropriately anonymized. No information about author's name should be identifiable from the paper (including abstract, related work, references). When citing one's own previous work, third person should be used. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is prohibited. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. The Program Committee reserves the right to reject any paper that does not abide by the rules without considering its technical merits.
