Financial Cryptography & Data Security is a leading conference for
research and discussion about security for finance and commerce. The
conference organizers are broadening the conference to cover all aspect
of financial and commerce security, and they have a particular interest
in human-factors issues. Reflecting this, I have been asked to co-chair
the conference with Moti Yung, and we will be putting together a Program
Committee that is receptive to interdisciplinary research on security

So, if you are doing research on the human factors of security systems
with implications for finance and commerce, please consider submitting
your work and/or attending FC'05. More information about the conference
is presented below, and on the conference web site, which will be
updated as the dates grow closer.

                    Financial Cryptography and Data Security

                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                         Ninth International Conference
                           February 28-March 3, 2005
                      Roseau, The Commonwealth Of Dominica

                    Submissions Due Date: September 10, 2004

Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC'05) is the premier
international forum for research, advanced development, education,
exploration, and debate regarding security in the context of finance and
commerce. We have augmented our conference title and expanded our scope
to cover all aspects of securing transactions and systems. These aspects
include a range of technical areas such as: cryptography, payment
systems, secure transaction architectures, software systems and tools,
user and operator interfaces, fraud prevention, payment systems, secure
IT infrastructure, and analysis methodologies. Our focus will also
encompass legal, financial, business and policy aspects. Material both
on theoretical (fundamental) aspects of securing systems and on secure
applications and real-world deployments will be considered.

The conference goal is to bring together top cryptographers,
data-security specialists, and scientists with economists, bankers,
implementers, and policy makers. Intimate and colorful by tradition, the
FC'05 program will feature invited talks, academic presentations,
technical demonstrations, and panel discussions. This conference is
organized annually by the International Financial Cryptography
Association (IFCA).

Original papers and presentations on all aspects of financial and
commerce security are invited. Submissions must have a visible bearing
on financial and commerce security issues, but can be interdisciplinary
in nature and need not be exclusively concerned with cryptography or
security. Possible topics for submission to the various sessions
include, but are not limited to:

* Anonymity and Privacy
* Auctions
* Audit and Auditability
* Authentication and Identification, including Biometrics
* Certification and Authorization
* Commercial Cryptographic Applications
