The 6th International Conference on Pairing-Based Cryptography will be held in Beijing, China, 22nd -24th November 2013. The conference is sponsored by Information Security Center of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Chinese Association for Cryptologic Research, As in previous years, the focus of Pairing 2013 is on all aspects of pairing-based cryptography, including: cryptographic primitives and protocols, mathematical foundations, software and hardware implementation, as well as applied security.

The first International Conference on Pairing-based Cryptography (Pairing 2007) was held in Tokyo, Japan, followed by Pairing 2008 in Egham, UK, Pairing 2009 in Palo Alto, USA, and Pairing 2010 in Yamanaka Hot Spring, Japan,Pairing 2012 in Cologne, Germany.

Instructions for authors

Authors are invited to submit papers describing their original research on all aspects of pairing-based cryptography, including (but not limited to) the topics stated below. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or that has been submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop. Submissions should be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Papers should be at most 18 pages, including the bibliography and appendices, using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them.

Submitted papers should follow the formatting instructions of the Springer LNCS Style. Please check the Information for LNCS Authors page at Springer for style and formatting guidelines. The final version of accepted papers should be at most 18 pages in standard LNCS style.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register with the conference and present the paper in order to be included in the proceedings.
