Real World Cryptography Workshop 2015

The RWC series of workshops aims to bring together cryptography researchers with developers implementing cryptography in real-world systems. The main goal of the workshop is to strengthen the dialogue between these two communities. Topics covered will focus on uses of cryptography in real-world environments such as the Internet, the cloud, and embedded devices. The 2015 edition of the workshop will be held in London, UK, 7-9 January 2015. The conference venue is the New Academic Building (NAB), London School of Economics, 54 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3LJ. This year the steering committee accepts submissions for presentation in the workshop. The deadline for full consideration is November 1st, 2014. For more information please visit:

International Conference on Smart Grid 2018

The International Conference on Smart Grid ( is opened at 
Nagasaki, Japan that will be organized on December 4-6, 2018. 
icSmartGrid has been technically co-sponsored by IEEE IES and IAS. All presented 
papers at icSmartGrid will be published in IEEE Xplore, WEB of Science (Clarivate 
Analytics) and SCOPUS. 
The purpose of the icSmartGrid is to bring together researchers, engineers, 
manufacturers, practitioners and customers from all over the world to share and discuss 
advances and developments in Smart Grids research and applications. 
After the successes of the previous editions of Smart Grids Workshops on behalf of 
European Commission Joint Research Centre in Antalya in 2013 and 2014, and in 
February and April 2015, and with technical co-sponsorship of IEEE IES in March 2016 
in Istanbul, icSmartGrid will continue promoting and disseminating the knowledge 
concerning several topics and technologies related to smart energy systems and 
sources. It is therefore aimed at assisting researchers, scientists, manufacturers, 
companies, communities, agencies, associations and societies to keep abreast on new 
developments in their specialist fields and to unite in finding alternative energy solutions 
to current issues such as the greenhouse effect, sustainable and clean energy issues. 
In addition, Successful applications of Smart grid, Smart grid policies, Integration of 
renewable energy sources to smart grid, Production of energy using smart grid 
technologies, Hybrid smart grid energy system technologies, Novel energy conversion 
studies in smart grid systems, Driving circuits for smart grid energy systems, Control 
techniques for smart grid energy systems, Performance analysis of smart grid energy 
systems under different loads, Computational methods and artificial intelligence studies 
in smart grids, Optimized power delivery and generation and Self-healing are included in 
the topics of Smart Grids Conference.

17th Cryptology And Network Security Conference (CANS2018)



*** Submission deadline extended to May 17, 2018 - 23:59 UTC ***


17th International Conference on Cryptology and Network Security (CANS 2018)

Naples, Italy -- September 30 - October 03, 2018


The International Conference on Cryptology And Network Security (CANS) is a 

recognized annual conference, focusing on all aspects of cryptology, and of 

data, network, and computer security, attracting cutting-edge results from 

world-renowned scientists in the area. CANS 2018 will be held in  Naples (Italy) 

in collaboration with Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) and Parthenope 

University of Naples. Earlier editions were held in Taipei ('01), San Francisco ('02), 

Miami ('03), Xiamen ('05), Suzhou ('06), Singapore ('07), Hong Kong ('08), 

Kanazawa ('09), Kuala Lumpur ('10), Sanya ('11), Darmstadt ('12), Parary ('13), 

Crete ('14), Marrakesh ('15), Milan ('16) and Hong Kong ('17). All accepted papers 

will be presented at the conference and will appear in the conference proceedings, 

which will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.

High quality papers on unpublished research and implementation experiences are 

solicited for submission. All papers must be original and not substantially 

duplicate work that has been published at or is simultaneously submitted to a 

journal or another conference/workshop with proceedings.


All submissions must be written in English, at most 20 pages in Springer's Lecture 

Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format, including title,  abstract, and bibliography. 

The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at the level 

understandable for a non-expert reader. The introduction should also explain the 

relation to related work. At most 4 pages of supplemental material may be provided 

as well-marked appendices, however, the paper should be intelligible without this 

material. Submissions must be anonymous (no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, 

or obvious references).


The conference will also consider short papers, that is, submissions of up to 8 pages 

(in the LNCS format), for results that are not yet fully fleshed out y or that simply 

require few pages to describe but still make a significant contribution.

All submissions must be processed with  LaTeX2e according to the instructions given by 

Springer. Submitted manuscripts must be typeset in plain Springer LNCS format, in 

particular without changing the font size, margins or line spacing.Submissions not 

meeting these guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.


Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via easychair


At least one author of every accepted paper must register to the conference by the early 

registration deadline indicated by the organizers. Papers without a registered author will 

be removed from the proceedings. Authors have to present their own paper(s). Proceedings 

including all accepted papers will be published in LNCS and will be available at the conference.
