Since its introduction in 2000, Indocrypt has been widely acknowledged as the leading Indian venue for cryptography. Additionally, Indocrypt is well known and established around the cryptographic world, attracting cryptographers from all around the world. This year, the conference returns once again to Kolkata (where it was founded).

Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission. This includes works on foundational, practical, and industry-related aspects with contributions in various areas including security models, cryptographic primitives, cryptographic protocols, cryptanalysis, hardware and software implementation aspects, and applications. Submissions focusing on cryptographic aspects of network security, complexity theory, information theory, coding theory, number theory, and quantum computing are welcome.

Instructions for authors of papers

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published/submitted in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. The Indocrypt 2016 Chairs reserve the right to share information about submissions with other program committees or journal editors to detect parallel submissions. In addition, the Indocrypt Chairs reserve the right to contact an author’s institution/corporation and/or other appropriate organizations if an irregular submission is detected.

Submissions 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 keywords. 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 (i.e. single column with at least 11pt size font with reasonably sized margins). Any number of clearly marked appendices may be supplied following the main body of the paper. However, 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. Submitted papers must be in PDF format and should be submitted electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure is available via

The proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, and will be available at the conference.
