We especially would like to encourage submissions of panel
proposals. These should include a very brief description of the panel
topics, as well as of the prospective panelists. Accepted panel
sessions will be presented at the conference. Moreover, each
participant will contribute a one-page abstract to be published in the
conference proceedings. Please feel free to contact us directly if you
would like to further discuss the suitability of a certain
topic. Panel submissions must not be anonymous and should be up to 2
pages, sent to fc14chair at ifca.ai.


The poster session is the perfect venue to share a provocative
opinion, interesting established or preliminary work, or a cool idea
that will spark discussion. Poster presenters will benefit from a
multi-hour session to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive
feedback from attendees. Poster submissions should be a 1-page
abstract (in the same LNCS format) describing the poster. Please keep
in mind that the poster deadline is later than the main paper
submission deadline. The poster abstracts will be published in the
proceedings. Poster proposals must not be anonymous and should be sent
to the posters chair at fc14chair at ifca.ai.


We are pleased to announce the availability of enhanced financial
support for students attending FC14. We anticipate awarding student
stipends that would cover conference registration fees and reimburse
travel expenses up to $750. Preference will be given to students who
will be presenting at the conference or associated workshops, but all
student participants are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in
applying for stipend support, please email the FC2014 general chair at
fc14general at ifca.ai with subject line "student stipend" and a letter
of support from your home institution.

This conference is organized annually by the International Financial
Cryptography Association.
