Paper Submission

General Information

Submission server for TCHES 2019 Issue 2 (now accepting submissions):
https://secure.iacr.org/websubrev/tches19_2/submit/ 

TCHES requires all articles to be typeset in the new iacrtrans LaTeX class. Please make sure that your submission strictly complies with the predefined format. The class is based on standard LaTeX classes and packages (mainly the article class with amsmath), and should be similar in use to the llncs class used for Springer’s proceedings (see hints on the conversion of lncs articels below).

Converting llncs Paper to iacrtrans

If you have a paper typeset with the llncs class, conversion should be relative easy. The following steps should be sufficient in most cases (for the submission version):

  • Replace \documentclass{llncs} with \documentclass[submission]{iacrtrans}
  • Replace \bibliographystyle{splncs03} with \bibliographystyle{alpha}
  • Add a \keywords{} command before the abstract, with keywords seperated by \and
  • Remove commands that might override the class style, such as \pagestyle{...} or \thispagestyle{...}, change of margins (e.g. with the geometry package), change of fonts,...
  • See also the package documentation
