IACR logo

Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission to Eurocrypt 2002, the 21st Annual Eurocrypt Conference. Eurocrypt 2002 is organized by the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).


Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their papers electronically. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will appear by September 15, 2001 at  Electronic submissions must conform to this procedure and be received by  November 5, 2001, 08:00 GMT  in order to be considered. Authors unable to submit electronically are invited to send a cover letter and 23 copies of an anonymous paper (double-sided copies) to the Program Chair at the postal address below. Submissions must be received by the Program Chair on or before November 5, 2001 (or postmarked by October 29, 2001, and sent via airmail or courier). Late submissions and submissions by fax will not be considered. The cover letter should contain the paper's title and the names and affiliations of the authors, and should identify the contact author including e-mail and postal addresses.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop with proceedings. The paper 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. The paper should be at most 12 pages excluding the bibliography and clearly marked appendices, and at most 35 pages in total, using at least 11-point font and reasonable margins. 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. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by January 16, 2002. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.


Proceedings will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference. Clear instructions about the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. The final versions of the accepted papers will be due on February 15, 2002.

Submission deadline: November 5, 2001

Acceptance notification: January 16, 2002
