General Information

Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited
for submission to Africacrypt 2008. The conference is organized by the
Moroccan Association for Cryptography (AMC) in cooperation with IACR.
For more information see

The conference seeks original contributions in any area of cryptology
or related fields. We welcome submissions about new cryptographic
primitive proposals, cryptanalysis, security models, implementation
aspects, and applications. We also consider submissions about
cryptographic aspects of network security, complexity theory,
information theory, coding theory, number theory, and quantum computing.
We intend to have special sessions on security and privacy aspects in
wireless technologies (including mobile ad hoc networks and RFID) and
biometric access control.

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.
Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of
other conferences for that purpose. Accepted submissions may not appear
in any other conference or workshop with proceedings. The submission
must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments,
or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract,
and a list of key words, and its introduction should summarize the
contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist
reader. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

Since the final version of accepted papers will have to follow the
LNCS guidelines (see with a total
page limit of 18 pages including references and appendices, it is
advised to submit in the same format. Committee members are not
required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible
and self-contained within this length.

Papers must be submitted electronically. A detailed description of the
electronic submission procedure is available at Submissions must conform to this
procedure. Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not
be considered.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be
presented at the conference.

Conference Proceedings

Proceedings are intended to be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference.
Instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will
be sent to the authors of accepted papers.
