Event description:

Associated with Financial Crypto & Data Security 2015

The cloud hype and recent disclosures show there is demand for secure and practical computing technologies. The workshop addresses the challenge to safely outsource data processing onto remote computing resources by protecting programs and data even during processing. This allows users to confidently outsource computation over confidential information independently from the trustworthiness or the security level of the remote delegate. The technologies and techniques discussed in this workshop are key to extend the range of applications that can be securely and practically outsourced.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, government and industry to present, discuss and share the latest progress in the field relevant to real­world problems with practial approaches and solutions.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

Implementation of homomorphic encryption schemes
Practical performance evaluations of homomorphic encryption schemes
Practical aspects of functional encryption
Software architectures for encrypted applications
Platform and system integration for encrypted applications
Algorithmic primitives for encrypted applications
Encrypted search schemes
Encrypted e-payment solutions
Encrypted financial transactions
Encrypted applications in bio-informatics
Hybrid (partly encrypted) applications
Hardware implementations of encrypted computing
Secure information sharing

== Intended audience

Professionals, researchers and practitioners in the area of computer security and applied cryptography with an interest in practical applications of homomorphic encryption, encrypted computing, functional encryption and secure function evaluation, private information retrieval and searchable encryption.

== Schedule

Submission deadline: Oct. 16, 2014
Acceptance Notification: Nov. 16, 2014
Camera Ready Due: Dec. 31, 2014
Workshop: Jan. 30, 2015

== Submission

Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS volume (as part of the main FC '15 proceedings or collected in a subsidiary workshop proceedings). Submissions are limited to 12 pages including references and appendices. Authors are invited to submit anonymous versions of their papers for initial review via the submission server:


Referees will do their best to avoid identification of authors of anonymous papers during the review process.
