The Ninth International Conference on Provable Security (ProvSec 2015)

Kanazawa, Japan
Web Page:

The Ninth International Conference on Provable Security (ProvSec 2015) will be held in Kanazawa, Japan on November 2015. It will be organized by Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST).
Provable security is an important research area in modern cryptography. Cryptographic primitives or protocols without a rigorous proof cannot be regarded as secure in practice. In fact, there are many schemes that were originally thought as secure but eventually broken, which clearly indicates the need of formal security assurance. With provable security, we are confident in using cryptographic schemes and protocols in various real-world applications. Meanwhile, schemes with provable security sometimes give only theoretical feasibility rather than a practical construction, and correctness of the proofs may be difficult to verify. ProvSec conference thus provides a platform for researchers, scholars and practitioners to exchange new ideas for solving these problems in the provable security area.
The previous ProvSec conference series were successfully held in Wollongong, Australia (2007), Shanghai, China (2008), Guangzhou, China (2009), Malacca, Malaysia (2010), Xi’an, China (2011), Chengdu, China (2012), Malacca, Malaysia (2013) and Hong Kong, China (2014). The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, and we are discussing with journals for special issues of selected papers published in ProvSec (after significant extension). More details will be announced later.

Conference Topics:
All aspects of provable security for cryptographic primitives or protocols, include but are not limited to the following areas:
•Asymmetric provably secure cryptography
•Cryptographic primitives
•Lattice-based security reductions
•Leakage-resilient cryptography
•Pairing-based provably secure cryptography
•Privacy and anonymity technologies
•Provable secure block ciphers and hash functions
•Secure cryptographic protocols and applications
•Security notions, approaches, and paradigms
•Steganography and steganalysis

Important Dates:
Conference date: November 24-26, 2015
Paper submission deadline: June 17, 2015
Notification of acceptance: August 17, 2015
Camera ready deadline: August 24, 2015

Instructions for Authors:
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or that have been submitted in parallel with any other conference or workshop. Submissions should be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. More details will be published soon. At least one author of each accepted paper must register with the conference and present the paper.

Conference Venue:
Kanazawa is the prefectural capital of Ishikawa Prefecture and located in the central part of the mainland of Japan. It takes 45 min by airplane and 2 hours 28 min by bullet train from Tokyo. In Kanazawa, there are one of Japan's three most beautiful gardens called Kenrokuen, and Kanazawa Castle. For more information, visit
