This conference is one of the leading international events for e-voting

experts from all over the world. In 2016 the two previously bi-annually held

conferences, EVOTE and VoteID, were merged into the annual E-VOTE-ID

conference. The second joint conference will take place in October 2017.

One of its major objectives is to provide a forum for interdisciplinary and open

discussion of all issues relating to electronic voting. Cumulatively, since 2004 some

1,000 experts from all over the world have attended this conference to discuss

electronic voting and related topics.

The aim of the conference is to bring together e-voting specialists working in

academia, politics, government and industry in order to discuss various aspects of all

forms of electronic voting (including, but not limited to, polling stations, kiosks, ballot

scanners and remote voting by electronic means) in the three following tracks below

and a PhD colloquium:

Track on Security, Usability, and Technical Issues Design,

analysis, formal modeling or research implementation of:

- Electronic voting protocols and systems;

- Voter identification and authentication;

- Ballot secrecy, receipt-freeness and coercion resistance;

- Election verification including end-to-end verifiability and risk limiting audits;

- Requirements;

- Evaluation and certification, including international security standards,

  e.g. Common Criteria or ITSEC;

- Human aspects of security mechanisms in electronic voting and

  in particular of verifiability mechanisms;

- Or any other security and HCI issues relevant to electronic voting.

Track on Administrative, Legal, Political, and Social Issues

- Discuss legal, political and social issues of electronic voting

  implementations, ideally employing case study methodology;

- Analyze the interrelationship with, and the effects of electronic voting

  on democratic institutions and processes;

- Assess the cultural impact of electronic voting on institutions,

  behaviours and attitudes of the Digital Era;

- Discuss the administrative, legal, political and social risks of electronic voting;

- How to draft electronic voting legislations;

- Public administrations and the implementation of electronic voting;

- Understandability, transparency, and trust issues in electronic voting;

- Data protection issues;

- Public interests vs. PPP (public private partnerships).

Track on Election and Practical Experiences

- Review developments in the area of applied electronic voting;

- Report on experiences with electronic voting or the preparation thereof

  (including project progress reports, case law, court decisions, legislative steps,

  public and political debates, election outcomes, etc.);

Experience reports need not contain original research, but must be an accurate,

complete and, where applicable, evidence-based account of the deployment.

Submissions will be judged on quality of the system or of the analysis, and the

applicability of the results to other democracies.


PhD Colloquium

The colloquium continues the tradition of PhD workshops on e-voting. Since 2006

the PhD seminars have focused on various aspects of e-voting including technical

aspects, legal challenges, identity management, verifiability of the vote, etc. The

workshops took place in various locations in Austria, Catalonia, Denmark, Estonia,

Germany, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.

The goal of the colloquium is to foster understanding and collaboration between

PhD students from various disciplines working on e-voting. To this end, the

program allows plenty of space for discussion and initiating collaboration based on

presentations by attendees.

What makes this colloquium special is that it is truly interdisciplinary, where PhD

students from legal backgrounds are joined by PhD students with computer science

and cryptography backgrounds and by social scientists. Master students in e-voting

and related areas are also welcome to participate.

Each interested participant should submit his/her research proposal (or alternatively

ideas for papers, open problems, or other issues where feedback from colleagues

would be helpful etc.) of some two pages length using the conference platform. In

addition to this proposal, participants are asked to fill out a questionnaire about

their PhD project. This questionnaire will be send by email to participants who have

submitted their proposal.


Format of the Conference

The format of the conference is a three-day meeting. The PhD colloquium takes

places on the day before the formal conference begins. No parallel sessions will be

held, and sufficient space will be given for informal communication.


Invited Speakers

This year we have already confirmed two keynote speakers:

David Basin - ETH Zurich

Ralf Küsters - University of Stuttgart


Paper Submission

Paper submissions can be in two formats-either as a full paper or an abstract.

- Full paper submissions (up to max 16 pages, including abstract, figures, bibliography);

- Abstract submissions (2 pages, roughly 1,200 words).

All submissions will be subject to double-blind reviews.

Submissions must be anonymous (with no reference to the authors).

Submissions are to be made using the EasyChair conference system at, which serves as the online

system for the review process. During submission, please select the appropriate track

or the PhD colloquium. The track chairs reserve the right to re-assign papers to other

tracks in case of better fit based on reviewer feedback and in coordination with other

track chairs. LNCS style has to be used (see the Springer guidelines at,

including templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word).

If you think that one or more of the programme committee members could have

a conflict of interest with your submission, please let the general chairs know at

[log in to unmask] In turn, according settings in the EasyChair

system will be set, so that the respective member/s is/are not involved in the review

way it is intended to make accepted publications accessible.



The conference will be held in the beautiful Renaissance castle of Hofen at Lochau/

Bregenz on the shores of Lake Constance in Austria.

On the evening of 24 October a welcome reception for all conference participants

E-Voting System Demonstration Session

We also invite demonstrations of electronic voting systems, to be presented in an

open session on Tuesday 24 October during the welcome reception. Participation

is open to all conference participants, but we request a one-page summary by

30 September to [log in to unmask] describing the system's requirements and

properties, such as:

- whether the system is intended for use in controlled (i.e. in polling stations) or

  uncontrolled environments (i.e. remotely via the Internet or in kiosks);

- which types of elections it accommodates;

- whether it addresses the needs of voters with disabilities;

- what sort of verifiability it provides;

- the extent to which it guarantees vote privacy;

- whether it has been deployed in a real election;

- where to go for more information.
