* Instructions for paper submission
The Workshop welcomes original papers from academic, government, and 
industry contributors dealing with the above or related issues. Papers 
which describe ongoing research or provide an excellent surveying work 
are welcome too. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough a blind 
review by at least three reviewers.

The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, 
acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a 
short abstract, and a list of key words, and its introduction should 
summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a 
non-specialist reader. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk 
rejection without consideration of their merits.

As for all previous EuroPKI events, it is planned that accepted papers 
are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
(LNCS) series. Therefore we require that submissions follow the LNCS 
guidelines (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs) with a total page 
limit of 16 pages including references and appendices.  Up to 6 pages of 
additional supporting information may be provided, but committee members 
will read this information at their discretion, so the paper should be 
intelligible and self-contained within the 16 page LNCS limit.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the 
authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any 
other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. 
Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other 
conferences for that purpose. Accepted submissions may not appear in any 
other conference or workshop with proceedings.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. A detailed 
description of the electronic submission procedure is available at 
Submissions must conform to this procedure. Late submissions and 
non-electronic submissions will not be considered. Authors of accepted 
papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.

The conference will be held in the convention centre of the CNR Research 
Area in Pisa .

Pisa is a small historical town, world-wide known for the "Torre 
pendente" (leaning tower), one of the monuments of "Campo dei Miracoli" 
(field of miracles). With its international Airport, with direct flights 
(often low cost) with several European cities (such as Paris, London, 
Amsterdam, Brussels, Munich, Madrid, etc.) and also a direct fly with 
New York (operated by Delta), Pisa represents the main entrance for 
visiting Tuscany, with its historical, cultural and natural beauties.
