Original papers on all aspects of applied cryptography and network security are solicited for submission to ACNS '09.

Topics of relevance include but are not limited to:

As in previous years, there will be an academic track and an industrial track. Submissions to the academic track should emphasize research contributions, while submissions to the industrial track may focus on implementation and deployment of real-world systems. Submissions for the industrial track must clearly indicate this in the title.

Instructions for authors:

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

All submissions will be blind reviewed. The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.

The final proceedings version will be a paper of at most 18 pages in the llncs style, which corresponds to around 7000 words of text. The document submitted (excluding appendices) should correspond to what the authors expect to be published if their paper is accepted without modification. We therefore strongly recommend that authors check whether their paper (without appendices) will fit within the above llncs space constraints. Committee members are not required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within this length. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.

The proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference.

Clear instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.
