Call for Papers


lncs.jpg The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes of Computer Sciences series.

Latincrypt 2017 is the Fifth International Conference on Cryptology and Information Security in Latin America, and is organized by Cuban Society of Mathematics and Computer Science (SCMC) and the Havana University, in cooperation with IACR, the International Association for Cryptologic Research. Original papers on all technical aspects of Cryptology are solicited for submission to Latincrypt 2017. The conference seeks original contributions on new cryptography primitive proposals, cryptanalysis, security models, hardware and software implementation aspects, cryptography protocols and applications, as well as submissions about cryptography aspects of network security, complexity theory, information theory, coding theory, number theory, and quantum computing.

Instructions to 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. The length of the submission should be at most 16 pages excluding  bibliography and appendices using Springer’s LNCS package (see instructions at, with no changes to the style. Any number of clearly marked appendices may be supplied following the main body of the paper. The committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format at the Latincrypt web site. Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not be considered. No new submissions will be accepted after the paper registration deadline (26 June 2017). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Program Committee member submissions will be held to higher standards than other submissions.

Accepted papers will be published in Springer’s LNCS Series and will be available after the conference. Instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers.

The ASCrypto summer school is co-located with Latincrypt 2017 and will take place September 17–19, just before the conference.

Student-paper submission:

Student-paper submission As part of the Latincrypt commitment to the establishment of cryptographic research and cryptographic communities, Latincrypt 2017 will offer students at institutes with little guidance to submit an early version of their paper a few weeks before the registration deadline.

A limited number of submissions will be accepted by the program chairs by email before the student-paper presubmission deadline (08 May 2017) for this program on a first come first served basis. Such submissions should include besides the PDF of the manuscript (that should adhere to the instructions to authors) also a short CV of the student(s) submitting the paper, and a short letter that supports the notion that the student(s) have no access to adequate guidance in cryptographic research.

Submissions which will satisfy the criteria, will go through a special review process. One committee member will offer an early review of the paper (by 18 May 2017), allowing the student(s) time to work on the paper and to submit a revised version to the conference at the regular deadlines. Such student papers will undergo the same review process and there will be no indication that they underwent an initial review. These papers will be held to the same standards as all papers.

Please note that this track is not used for “accepting papers”. Hence, such student papers must be registered and submitted with the conference website before the regular submissions deadlines.
