Call for Papers

The call for papers is also available in PDF.

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 http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html), 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 https://indocrypt2016.cs.haifa.ac.il/iChair/.

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

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

Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), a unique P. C. Mahalanobish institution devoted to the research, teaching and application of statistics, natural sciences and social sciences. Founded by Professor P.C. Mahalanobis in Kolkata on 17th December, 1931, the institute gained the status of an Institution of National Importance by an act of the Indian Parliament in 1959.
The Headquarters of ISI is located in the northern fringe of the metropolis of Kolkata. Additionally, there are four centres located in Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Tezpur. Research in Statistics and related disciplines is the primary activity of the Institute. Teaching activities are undertaken mainly in Kolkata, Delhi and Bangalore. Offices of the Institute located in several other cities in India are primarily engaged in projects and consultancy in Statistical Quality Control and Operations Research'.

 


Indian Currency


The Government of India has recently demonetized the old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes. This has impacted short term availability of cash at many places in the country. We advice participants from abroad to plan for this. Specifically, either carry new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2000, or carry the currency notes of Rs 100, or pay by cards wherever it is possible to do so.

 


Accommodation


Suggested hotels:


Mid and high range hotels:
We suggest The Fern Hotel and Resorts (Mid Range hotel) Website
We have negotiated a special conference rate in this hotel. For booking a room at conference rates, please book the room before November 10, 2016. To avail of this discounted rate send a mail to sales.fr.kolkata@fernhotels.com and res.fr.kolkata@fernhotels.com with CC to indocrypt2016@gmail.com The booking details will be mailed to you. If you book the room late, the rooms might still be available but not at the discounted rates.


There are many good hotels in the city. If you would like to book a high end hotel, then The Park or Taj Bengal are good options, among others.

Economy hotels:
We suggest the following two hotels. Please note that we have not negotiated any conference rates with these hotels.
(a) Airport city hotel Website
(b) Ehnotel hotel Website

Accommodation at ISI Kolkata:
Please note that we could get only a few rooms in the guesthouse and student dormitories for Indocrypt participants, as a few other coferences are also being organized by the institute during the same period. All of these rooms are already booked. The Indocrypt 2016 organizing team can't provide any more accommodation support to participants at the venue. Please make your own arrangements for stay at Kolkata during the conference.

Local travel :
Attendees staying at Fern Hotel and resorts may book airport pickup and drop cabs (cost is approx. USD 15) provided by the hotel. The charges can be paid by card at the hotel. Please mail the hotel directly to book this. (Prepaid taxis are also available at the Kolkata airport. Please go to the appropriate counter at the airport for these. It is not certain if this counter accepts card payments.)

For all the participants staying at the Fern hotel, we are providing free pickup and drop from Fern hotel to the venue on all conference days. The conference bus will start at 08:00 AM from the Fern hotel on each day.
