Paper Submission

Unfortunately the deadline to submit a paper to TCC 2023 has passed.

You can still access the submission server, should you need to make changes or upload a final paper version.

Instructions for Authors

The submission should begin with a title, followed by the names, affiliations and contact information of all authors, and a short abstract. It should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. The authors have two choices for the paper format. They may typeset their paper using Springer LNCS format with page numbers enabled (\pagestyle{plain}), keeping spacing, font sizes, and margins provided by the format. Alternatively, they may typeset their paper to fit on US letter or ISO A4 paper with at least 11pt font and reasonable spacing and margins. There is no page limit, but the paper should be intelligible by reviewers who are not required to read past the 15th page of the Springer format or past the 12th page of any other format (the bibliography does not need to appear in the first 12 or 15 pages, respectively). Final versions of accepted papers must be submitted in the LNCS format.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other journal, conference, or workshop that has proceedings; see the IACR policy on irregular submissions for more information. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to present the paper at the conference; presentations may be recorded and made available to the public online. Authors are strongly encouraged to post full versions of their submissions in a freely accessible online repository, such as the Cryptology ePrint archive. We encourage the authors to post such a version at the time of submission (in which case the authors should provide a link on the title page of their submission). At the minimum, we expect that authors of accepted papers will post a full version of their papers by the camera-ready deadline. Abstracts of accepted papers will be made public by the PC following the notification.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Contacting the Authors

At submission time, authors must provide one or several email addresses for corresponding authors. Throughout the review period, at least one corresponding author is expected to be available to receive and quickly answer questions (via email) that arise about their submissions.

Submission Instructions

Papers must be submitted electronically through the submission web page (see button at the top of this page). The authors are allowed to revise the paper any number of times before the submission deadline, and only the latest submitted version will be seen by the PC. Therefore, the authors are advised not to wait until the last moment for the initial submission.

Conflict of Interest Policy

Authors, program committee members, and reviewers must follow the IACR Policy on Conflicts of Interest, available from

In particular, the authors of each submission are asked during the submission process to identify all members of the Program Committee who have an automatic conflict of interest (COI) with the submission. A reviewer and an author have an automatic COI if:

Any further COIs of importance should be separately disclosed3. It is the responsibility of all authors to ensure correct reporting of COI information. Submissions with incorrect or incomplete COI information may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

1 Sharing an institutional affiliation means working at the same location or campus of the same company or university. It does not include separate universities of the same system, nor distant locations of the same company.
2 Jointly authored work refers to jointly authored papers and books, whether formally published or just posted online, resulting from collaboration on a scientific problem. It usually does not include joint editorial functions, like a jointly edited proceedings volume. For online publication, the first posting (not revisions) determines the relevant date. Multiple versions of a paper (conference, ePrint, journal) count as a single paper.
3 COIs are not restricted to automatic ones, others being possible. COIs beyond automatic COIs could involve financial, intellectual, or personal interests. Examples include closely related technical work, cooperation in the form of joint projects or grant applications, business relationships, close personal friendships, instances of personal enmity. Full transparency is of the utmost importance, and the authors and reviewers must disclose to the chairs or editor any circumstances that they think may create bias, even if it does not raise to the level of a COI. The editor or the program chair will decide if such circumstances should be treated as a COI.
