The International Conference on Public Key Infrastructure and its Applications (PKIA 2017) will be a premium venue for bringing together all stakeholders of a Public Key Infrastructure Ecosystem. The objective is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas from academia and industry on traditional and emerging topics and new paradigms in the areas of PKI, with a clear connection to real-world problems, systems or applications.
Applications of PKI as a technology has grown by leaps and bounds in the recent years and is on the verge of becoming synonymous with trust in electronic transactions all over the world.
The world of PKI has evolved as a robust and reliable system owing to the strong ecosystem - backed by the development in Cryptography, Protocols, Standards, Policy, Laws, Software libraries and hardware components.
The objective is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas from academia and industry on traditional and emerging topics and new paradigms in the areas of PKI, with a clear connection to real-world problems, systems or applications.
The conference therefore seeks submissions presenting innovative research and current developments in the areas of Public Key Infrastructures, Digital Certificates, Digital Signatures, Key Management, One-Time Signatures, Certificate-less secure communication, Time Stamping, PKI based Authentication etc. Submissions may focus on Modelling, Design, Analysis (incl. security proofs and attacks), Development (e.g. implementations), Deployment (e.g. system integration), and Maintenance (e.g. performance measurements, usability studies) of algorithms/protocols/standards/implementations/technologies /devices/systems standing in relation with public key cryptography. Some topics of interest include but not limited to:
Visit the International Conference CFP page HERE
Papers should be a maximum of 8 pages in the IEEE conference proceedings format available HERE
Please submit your technical papers by 15th August 2017, via EasyChair for PKIA 2017 HERE
Submissions must be original and must not substantially be a duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference/journal with formally published proceedings.
IEEE and Conference Chairs reserves the right to share information about submissions with other program committees to detect parallel submissions. Each submission must begin with a title, author names and affiliations, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.
The paper should be intelligible and self-contained without the supplementary material, as committee members are not required to read them. Authors of accepted papers must register and present the paper at the conference to be considered for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.
The papers presented at the conference will be eligible for the best paper award evaluations.
PKI India will be hosting an international conference in November 2017. We are expecting speakers from India and other foreign countries to join us for the meet.
The conference will be held in Bangalore, India.
