Call for Papers on "Card-based Cryptography"
A special issue of New Generation Computing solicits papers on the theme of Card-based Cryptography.
Paper Submission Deadline: May 10th, 2020 ***CLOSED***
Notification: July 12th, 2020
Revision Period: July 12th to August 12th, 2020
Publication: January 2021
Paper Submission Format: Refer to the journal home page. (Choose “Special Issue: Card-based Cryptography” in the submission system)
Scope of This Issue
The purpose of this special issue is to present recent research results on card- based cryptography; card-based protocols enable us to perform cryptographic tasks such as secure multiparty computations using a deck of physical cards. The scope also includes cryptography with everyday objects other than a deck of cards. The call is open to all. A substantially extended version of a conference paper is welcome (as long as the copyright holder grants permission).
We therefore solicit papers on diverse aspects of card-based cryptography as well as cryptography with other everyday objects, such as:
- Design and analysis of card-based protocols
- Models of card-based computations
- Card-based computational complexity
- Applications of card-based cryptography to education
- Cryptography with other everyday objects
- Real-life hands-on cryptography / Recreational cryptography
