# Paper Submission

Last updated: June 14, 2017 at 23:40 pm

Submitted extended abstracts will undergo a peer review process. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series printed by Springer International Publishing. The submitted papers should be at least eight pages in length due to the LNCS formal requirements, and in order to allow a thorough evaluation. In their submission, the authors are requested to indicate in the authors field in the paper if they are students (this information will be removed for the final version).

Authors of accepted papers will also be invited to submit an extended journal version of their papers to be published in a special issue of Cryptography and Communications — Discrete Structures, Boolean Functions and Sequences. The journal paper must be significantly different from the extended abstract, to have a different title and to include at least 30% of new/additional content. The journal papers will be subject to a new reviewing process. Further details will be published in due time.

### Initial submission

The deadline for submitting contributed papers in the PDF format is May 1, 2017 May 8, 2017. All papers must be submitted through the Easychair conference management system. Authors may use an existing account or create a new one, as explained on the EasyChair website.

Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=5icmcta.

Authors should prepare their papers by using the conference LaTeX document class llncs.cls or by using the provided template file for MS Word. The authors should carefully read the guidelines for the proceedings authors available on the Springer website. The website also contains a template file (zip) for both LaTeX and MS Word, which includes necessary files and formatting instructions.

### Final submission

The notifications of acceptance/rejection have been communicated on June 12, 2017.

The deadline for submitting the final version is July 1, 2017. The PDF file of the final paper in the Springer format must be uploaded through the EasyChair conference management system by replacing the existing submission (please do not forget to remove the “student” label near the names of the student authors). The authors should carefully read the guidelines for the proceedings authors available on the Springer website. The $$\TeX$$ files and all necessary supplemental files (figures, charts, etc.) should be ready to be sent in case we ask to do so, but should not be sent before we ask for them.

Please note that at least one author must be registered before submitting the final version. Details on the registration can be found here.

The authors must also submit a signed Consent to Publish form, through which the copyright of the paper is transferred to Springer. The form is available here. Please send the signed forms to by July 1st.
