Instructions for Authors
Send a cover letter and 12 copies of an extended abstract to be
received by November 17, 1997 (or postmarked by
November 7, 1997 and sent via airmail) to the Program Chair at the
address given below.
The extended abstract (a short draft of the full paper, typically 10
pages in length) should start with the title, the names of the
authors, and an abstract followed by a succinct statement appropriate
for a non-specialist reader specifying the subject addressed, its
background, the main achievements, and their significance to financial
data security. Submissions are limited to 15 single-spaced pages of
12pt type. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to
authors no later than January 12, 1998.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will
be presented at the conference.
Proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag in
their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Preproceedings
will be available at the conference, but final versions will not be
due until afterwards, giving authors the opportunity to revise their
papers based on presentations and discussions at the meeting.
Instructions and deadlines for submission of final papers will be sent
later to authors of accepted papers.
In addition to the regular conference program, a rump session will be
held to provide an opportunity for less formal presentations.
Although the rump session will be organized during the conference
itself, any advance proposals may be sent to the Program Co-Chair at
the email address given below. Rump session contributions will not
appear in the conference proceedings.
A very limited number of stipends may be available to those unable to
obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are
accepted and who will present the paper themselves are encouraged to
apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends should be
addressed to one of the General Chairs.
Information about conference registration and on travel, hotels, and
Anguilla itself will follow in a separate general announcement. There
are special reduced registration rates for full-time academics and
students. Further information about registration is available online
via the URL listed below.
A workshop, intended for anyone with commercial software development
experience who wants hands-on familiarity with the issues and
technology of financial cryptography, is planned in conjunction with
FC98, to be held during the week following the conference. Further
information about the workshop is available online via the URL listed
below. For information about workshop registration, please contact
one of the General Chairs.
On Thursday, February 26, 1998, there will be a total eclipse of the
sun. The narrow zone of 100% totality will pass just south of
Anguilla, and there should be an excellent view of the eclipse from
the conference site.
