Conference Location
Call For Papers
The International Conference on Cryptology and Network Security (CANS) is a recognized annual conference, focusing on all aspects of cryptology, and of data, network, and computer security, attracting cutting-edge results from world-renowned scientists in the area. Proceedings of CANS are published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer. They are distributed at the conference and are included in all major online databases.

The 15th edition of the conference will be held in Milan, Italy. Earlier editions of CANS were held in Taipei (2001), San Francisco (2002), Miami (2003), Xiamen (2005), Suzhou (2006), Singapore (2007), Hong Kong (2008), Kanazawa (2009), Kuala Lumpur (2010), Sanya (2011), Darmstadt (2012), Parary (2013), Crete (2014), and Marrakesh (2015). CANS 2016 is held in cooperation with the International Association of Cryptologic Research (IACR).


Papers offering novel research contributions are solicited for submission to the 15th International Conference on Cryptology and Network Security (CANS 2016). The focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers suggesting novel paradigms, original directions, or non-traditional perspectives.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are submitted in parallel to a journal or a conference with formally published proceedings.

Instructions for Authors

The submission should be at most 16 pages. The conference will also consider short submissions of up to 8 pages for results that are preliminary or that simply require few pages to describe. Authors of regular submitted papers will indicate at the time of submission whether they would like their paper to also be considered for publication as a short paper (8 proceedings pages). Submitted papers should be intelligible and self-contained without appendices. Papers must be submitted only electronically. The electronic submission site is available at

Submissions must be anonymous (no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, obvious references). At least one author of every accepted paper must register to the conference by the early registration deadline indicated by the organizers. Authors have to present their own paper. Papers without a registered author will be removed from the proceedings.

Accepted papers will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and will be available at the conference. Papers should follow the formatting instructions of the Springer LNCS Style, at the time of submission.
