Call for papers:


SECITC brings together computer security researchers, cryptographers, industry representatives and graduate students interested in any aspect of information security and privacy. One of SECITC’s primary goals is to bring together security and privacy researchers and professionals from different communities and provide a forum allowing the informal exchanges necessary for the emergence of new scientific and industrial collaborations. SECITC 2016 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10006 and for SECITC 2015 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 9522 in a book titled “Innovative Security Solutions for Information Technology and Communications”. Paper submission and refereeing for SECITC 2017 will take place via EasyChair and the post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

One originality of SECITC is its Exploits Session. In this session, new exploit authors will be invited to explain how exploits were discovered and submit a formal research paper describing their discoveries. While the discovery of new exploits is a high-risk high-gain investment that requires creativity and tenacious work, exploits are usually difficult to publish in mainstream research conferences. Exploit paper acceptance criteria will be the exploit’s nature, novelty and impact.

The conference topics comprise all aspects of information security, including but not limited to the following areas:
Access control, Algorithmic tools for security and cryptography, All aspects of cryptography, Application security, Attacks and defences, Authentication biometry, Censorship and censorship-resistance, Cloud Security, Distributed systems security, Embedded systems security, Digital forensics, Hardware security, Information flow analysis, Internet of Things (IoT) Security, Intrusion detection, Language-based security, Malware, Mobile security and privacy, Network security, New exploits, Policy enforcements, Privacy and anonymity, Protocol security, Reverse-engineering and code obfuscation, Security architectures, Security aspects of alternative currencies, Side channel attacks, Surveillance and anti-surveillance, System security.

Instructions for authors:

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel for consideration of any other journal, conference/workshop with proceedings. The submission should begin with a title followed by a short abstract and keywords. Submissions must be in PDF format and should have at most 12 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices, and at most 20 pages in total, using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. All submissions must be anonymous. The reviewers are not required to read appendices—the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers should guarantee that at least one of the authors will attend the conference and present their paper.
Paper submission and review process is handled via EasyChair platform. All submissions must be in PDF format. For paper submission follow the following link:

As the final accepted papers will be published in LNCS by Springer, it is recommended that the submissions be processed in LaTeX2e according to the instructions listed on the Springer’s LNCS Webpage: These instructions are mandatory for the final papers.
In particular, Springer’s LNCS paper formatting requirements can be found at:

David Nacacche

Wiki: “David Naccache is a cryptographer, currently a professor at the École Normale Supérieure and a member of its Computer Laboratory. He was previously a professor at Panthéon-Assas University. He received his Ph.D. in 1995 from the École nationale supérieure des télécommunications. Naccache’s most notable work is in public-key cryptography, including the cryptanalysis of digital signature schemes. Together with Jacques Stern he designed the similarly named but very distinct Naccache-Stern cryptosystem and Naccache-Stern knapsack cryptosystem.
In 2004 David Naccache and Claire Whelan, then employed by Gemplus International, used image processing techniques to uncover redacted information from the declassified 6 August 2001 President’s Daily Brief Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US.”
LinkedIn: “David Nacacche is a researcher in information security with a focus on efficient implementations and attacks. Also, he is a forensic expert by the French Supreme Court (Cour de Cassation) and by the International Criminal Court (Den Haag). David has a substantial experience (and training) in law (administrative, criminal and civil) and management.
He spends his (little) spare time as a Gendarmerie operational reserve officer, helping in investigations and treating matters at the crossroads of criminal law and ICT.”


Damien Vergnaud

Damien Vergnaud is an associate professor at École Normale Supérieure (Paris, France). He holds a doctorate degree in mathematics from the Université de Caen Basse-Normandie (France). His research interests include the design of efficient and secure cryptographic protocols, theoretical aspects of provable security and number theory.


Ferucio Laurentiu Tiplea

Ferucio Laurentiu Tiplea received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi, Romania, in 1993. He joined the Department of Computer Science of the aforementioned university in 1990, where he is currently Professor of Computer Science. Dr. Tiplea’s research interests lie in the area of theories and tools for high-level modeling, design, and analysis of systems, computability and complexity, and cryptography and computer security. He published more than 80 papers in professional journals and refereed conference proceedings in these areas, co-edited five conference volumes, contributed to six edited volumes, and delivered invited talks at many universities and international conferences. Dr. Tiplea was the recipient of several fellowships, such as the Fulbright Fellowship, German Academy Fellowship, DAAD Fellowship, Monbusho Fellowship. From December 2003 to May 2006 he held a Visiting Professor position at University of Central Florida, School of Computer Science, Orlando (USA).
