Call for Papers

Latincrypt 2019 is the Sixth International Conference on Cryptology and Information Security in Latin America, and is organized by the Universidad de Santiago de Chile, in cooperation with IACR, the International Association for Cryptologic Research. Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission to Latincrypt 2019. The conference seeks original contributions on new cryptographic primitive proposals, cryptanalysis, security models, formal methods in cryptography, hardware and software implementation aspects, cryptographic protocols and applications, as well as submissions about cryptographic aspects of network security, complexity theory, information theory, coding theory, number theory, and quantum computing.

Instructions for authors

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. Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. Each submission must be written in English, and should begin with a title, a short abstract, a list of keywords, and an introduction that summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Submissions must be typset using LaTeX using the unmodified Springer LNCS style file. The final versions of accepted papers will be published as a volume of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The page limit for submissions is 20 pages including references and all appendices. The same page limit will apply to the final versions of papers. Authors are encouraged to additionally submit auxiliary material (like source code, long proofs etc.), which reviewers may, but do not have to, take into account when judging the merits of papers. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

All papers must be submitted electronically through the submission system of Latincrypt 2019 (see Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not be considered. No new submissions will be accepted after the abstract submission deadline (May 4th, 2019). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Submissions by program-committee members will be held to higher standards than other submissions.

Accepted papers will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science and proceedings will be available at the conference (final approval pending). Instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers.

Conflicts of interest

During submission, authors will have to indicate conflicts of interest with members of the program committee. Latincrypt 2019 follows the IACR policy on conflicts of interest. In short, authors have a conflict of interest with PC members

  • if one is or was the thesis advisor to the other, no matter how long ago;
  • if they shared an institutional affiliation within the prior two years;
  • if they published two or more jointly authored works in the last three years; or
  • if they are immediate family members.
