economic and commercial transaction security. Original works focusing on
securing commercial transactions and systems are solicited; fundamental as
well as applied real-world deployments on all aspects surrounding commerce
security are of interest. Submissions need not be exclusively concerned

Workshop proposal submission: August 11, 2017
Workshop proposal notification: August 21, 2017
Paper submission: September 15, 2017
Paper notification: November 17, 2017
Poster and panel submission: November 24, 2017
Poster and panel notification: December 1, 2017
Final pre-proceeding papers: December 22, 2017



Submissions are sought in the following categories:
(i) regular papers (15 pages LNCS format excluding references and
(ii) short papers (8 pages LNCS format in total),
(iii) panel and workshop proposals (2 pages), and
(iv) posters (1 page).

The regular and short paper submissions must be anonymous, with no author
names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. In contrast,
panel, workshop proposals, and poster submissions must include author names
and affiliations.

Papers must be formatted in standard LNCS format and submitted as PDF
files. Submissions in other formats will be rejected. All papers must be
submitted electronically according to the instructions and forms found here
and at the submission site. For each accepted paper/poster the conference
requires at least one registration at the general or academic rate, and
paper authors must sign the IFCA copyright form (http://ifca.ai/documents/
copyright.html) when submitting the final version.

Authors may submit only work that does not substantially overlap with work
that is currently submitted or has been accepted for publication to a
conference/workshop with proceedings or a journal. We consider double
submission serious research fraud and will treat it as such. In case of
doubt contact the program chairs for any clarifications at fc18chair at ifca.ai

Paper submissions should be uploaded through the conference submission
website, where authors should also report any conflicts with program
committee members. A conflict exists if an author has the same affiliation
as a committee member, has ever acted as their PhD supervisor or been
supervised by them, or if they have been co-authors on a paper within the
past two years.

Poster submissions and panel proposals should be sent to fc18chair at ifca.ai.

Papers that are submitted but ultimately not accepted to the main
conference may be considered for acceptance at one of the associated
workshops.  If you would like to take advantage of this, please indicate
this preference when submitting your paper.


Research papers should describe novel, previously unpublished scientific
contributions to the field, and they will be subject to rigorous peer
review. Accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings
to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series. Submissions are limited to 15 pages in standard LNCS format
excluding references and appendices. A total page restriction may apply for
the printed proceedings version. Committee members are not required to read
the appendices, so the full papers should be intelligible without them.
Regular papers must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgments, or obvious references.


Short papers are also subject to peer review; however, the intention is to
encourage authors to introduce work in progress, novel applications, and
corporate/industrial experiences. Short papers will be evaluated with a
focus on novelty and potential for sparking participants' interest and
future research avenues. Short paper submissions are limited to 8 pages in
standard LNCS format in total. The paper title for short papers should
necessarily include the text "Short Paper:" Accepted submissions will be
included in the conference proceedings. Short papers must be also anonymous
with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references.


We especially would like to encourage submissions of panel proposals. These
should include a brief description of the panel topics, as well as of the
prospective panelists. Accepted panel sessions will be presented at the
conference.  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 fc18chair 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. Poster proposals must not be
anonymous and should be sent to the posters chair at fc18chair at ifca.ai.


Proposals for workshops to be held at FC18 are also solicited. A workshop
can be full day or half day in length. Workshop proposals should include:
(i) a title; (ii) a call for papers; (iii) a brief summary and
justification, including how it would fit into the greater FC scope; (iv) a
(tentative) Program Committee and its Chair(s); (v) one-paragraph
biographies for key organizers; and (vi) the expected (or previous, if the
workshop has been held in previous years) number of submissions,
participants and acceptance rates. Workshop proposals must not be anonymous
and should be sent to fc18workshops at ifca.ai.


FC18 will also include the popular "rump session" held on one of the
evenings in an informal, social atmosphere. The rump session is a program
of short (5 minutes), informal presentations on works in progress,
off-the-cuff ideas, and any other matters pertinent to the conference. Any
conference attendee is welcome to submit a presentation to the Rump Session
Chair (to be announced at the conference). This submission should consist
of a talk title, the name of the presenter, and, if desired, a very brief
abstract. Submissions may be sent via e-mail, or submitted in person in the
morning on the day of the session.


IFCA is seeking funding to continue its program of financial support
specifically for students attending FC, and students are encouraged to
submit work in anticipation that funding will be found. Previous grants
prioritized students presenting at the conference or associated workshops
and students fresh to the field, but all students are encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in applying for stipend support, please email the
FC18 general chairs at fc18general at ifca.ai with subject line "student
stipend" and a letter of support from your thesis supervisor or home
institution confirming your student status and stating that a stipend would
help make it possible for you to attend the conference.
