Call for Papers

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published in a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings, or has submitted/is planning to submit before the author notification deadline to a journal or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. IACR reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees and editorial boards to detect parallel submissions and the IACR policy on irregular submissions will be strictly enforced.

A paper submitted to TCHES must be written in English and be anonymous, with no author names, affliations, acknowledgements, or any identifying citations. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. TCHES accepts two forms of paper, termed short and long; the page limit (excluding bibliography) is 20 and 40 pages respectively. In either case, authors are encouraged to include supplementary material needed to validate the content (e.g., test vectors or source code) as an appendix: this material will not be included in the page count. In allowing long papers, the goal is to support cases where extra detail (e.g., proofs, or experimental results) is deemed essential. Authors should highlight long papers by annotating the title with \(Long Paper)", and be aware the review process may take longer: a decision may, at the discretion of the editors-in-chief(s), be deferred to the subsequent volume.
