Dear ,

We would like to draw your attention to the International Conference on Security and Cryptography (SECRYPT-2012), which has currently an open call for papers. 

Theoretical and practical advances in the fields of cryptography and coding are a key factor in the growth of data communications, data networks and distributed computing. In addition to the mathematical theory and practice of cryptography and coding, SECRYPT also focuses on other aspects of information systems and network security, including applications in the scope of the knowledge society in general and information systems development in particular, especially in the context of e-business, internet and global enterprises.

SECRYPT 2012 is part of the International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications (ICETE 2012) that has 5 more conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:

– DCNET: Int'l Conference on Data Communication Networking (
– ICE-B: Int'l Conference on e-Business (
– OPTICS: Int'l Conference on Optical Communication Systems (
– SIGMAP: Int'l Conference on Signal Processing and Multimedia Applications (
– WINSYS: Int'l Conference on Wireless Information Networks and Systems (

These six concurrent conferences are held in parallel and registration to one warrants delegates to attend all six.

ICETE is interested in promoting high quality research as it can be confirmed by last year acceptance rates, where from 409 submissions, 12% were accepted as full papers, 16% were presented as short papers and 13% as posters.

The conference program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, namely:
– Venu Govindaraju, University at Buffalo, United States
(list not yet complete)

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. DEZO
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book. 
Additionally, a short list of papers presented at the conference, will also be selected for publication in the Journal of Information Processing Systems (JIPS).
Furthermore, a short list of papers presented at the conference, will be selected for publication in a special issue of JNW – Journal of Networks

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and Elsevier Index (EI).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library ( SciTePress is member of CrossRef (

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.
