Call for Posters

The International Conference on Cryptology and Network Security (CANS) is a recognized annual conference, focusing on all aspects of cryptology, and of data, network, and computer security, attracting cutting-edge results from world-renowned scientists in the area.

Building on the success of the past years' conferences, CANS 2016 welcomes poster submissions to be presented during the conference. A poster submission should be a 4 to 6 page abstract, which summarizes the key merits of proposed ideas, presents initial results, and identifies challenges to develop a complete solution. Abstracts will be evaluated by the Posters Session committee based on the novelty and the potential to stimulate discussions and promote collaborations.
