                    February 28 - March 3, 2005
               Roseau, The Commonwealth Of Dominica

             Submissions Due Date: September 17, 2004

Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC'05) is the premier
international forum for research, advanced development,
education, exploration, and debate regarding security in the
context of finance and commerce. We have augmented our conference
title and expanded our scope to cover all aspects of securing
transactions and systems. These aspects include a range of
technical areas such as: cryptography, payment systems, secure
transaction architectures, software systems and tools, user and
operator interfaces, fraud prevention, secure IT infrastructure,
and analysis methodologies. Our focus will also encompass legal,
financial, business and policy aspects. Material both on
theoretical (fundamental) aspects of securing systems and on
secure applications and real-world deployments will be

The conference goal is to bring together top cryptographers,
data-security specialists, and scientists with economists,
bankers, implementers, and policy makers. Intimate and colorful
by tradition, the FC'05 program will feature invited talks,
academic presentations, technical demonstrations, and panel
discussions. This conference is organized annually by the
International Financial Cryptography Association (IFCA).

Original papers and presentations on all aspects of financial and
commerce security are invited. Submissions must have a visible
bearing on financial and commerce security issues, but can be
interdisciplinary in nature and need not be exclusively concerned
with cryptography or security. Possible topics for submission to
the various sessions include, but are not limited to:

* Anonymity and Privacy
* Auctions
* Audit and Auditability
* Authentication and Identification, including Biometrics
* Certification and Authorization
* Commercial Cryptographic Applications
* Commercial Transactions and Contracts
* Digital Cash and Payment Systems
* Digital Incentive and Loyalty Systems
* Digital Rights Management
* Financial Regulation and Reporting
* Fraud Detection
* Game Theoretic Approaches to Security
* Infrastructure Design
* Legal and Regulatory Issues
* Microfinance and Micropayments
* Monitoring, Management and Operations
* Reputation Systems
* RFID-Based and Contactless Payment Systems
* Risk Assessment and Management
* Secure Banking
* Secure Financial Web Services
* Securing Emerging Computational Paradigms
* Security and Risk Perceptions and Judgments
* Security Economics
* Smart Cards and Secure Tokens
* Trust Management
* Trustability and Trustworthiness
* Underground-Market Economics
* Usability and Acceptance of Security Systems
* User and Operator Interfaces

                      Submission Instructions

Submission Categories
FC'05 is inviting submissions in three categories: (1) research
papers, (2) systems and applications presentations, (3) panel
sessions. For all accepted submissions, at least one author must
attend the conference and present the work.

Research Papers
Research papers should describe novel scientific contributions to
the field, and they will be subject to vigorous peer review.
Papers can be a maximum of 15 pages in length (including
references and appendices), and accepted submissions will be
published in full in the conference proceedings.

Systems and Application Presentations
Submissions in this category should describe novel or successful
systems with an emphasis on secure digital commerce applications.
Presentations may concern commercial systems, academic
prototypes, or open-source projects for any of the topics listed
above. Where appropriate, software or hardware demonstrations are
encouraged as part of the presentations in these sessions.
Submissions in this category should consist of a short summary of
the work (1-6 pages in length) to be reviewed by the Program
Committee, along with a short biography of the presenters.
Accepted submissions will be presented at the conference (25
minutes per presentation), and a one-page abstract will be
published in the conference proceedings.

Panel Sessions
Proposals for panel sessions are also solicited, and should
include a brief description of the panel as well as prospective
participants. Accepted panel sessions will be presented at the
conference, and each participant will contribute a one-page
abstract to be published in the conference proceedings.
