Frequently Asked Questions

Can I present something I'll try to submit elsewhere for publication?

Yes! The core idea for WEWoRC is to serve as a workshop for reserachers in cryptology, mostly for junior researchers. You are invited to present your ideas, to discuss them with your fellows, and to gather new ideas.

The extended abstract you send us is going to be printed as a part of the pre-proceedings, handed out to the participants. The pre-proceedings are no peer-reviewed publication, so it does not interfere with other conferences or journals.

In contrast to many other conferences on cryptography, you are not required to submit your paper to the post-proceedings.

Am I allowed to give a talk on topics I have published elsewhere?

Yes. The core idea for WEWoRC is ... see above. Of course, your abstract should not be identical to a publication under someone else's copyright.

So there are two different proceedings at WEWoRC?

Yes, there are the informal pre-proceedings with all the extended abstracts, and the post-proceedings, reviewed by a program committee of experienced researchers. The post-proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) series of the GI.

For the post-proceedings, the usual rule applies: no double-publication of the same paper in another peer-reviewed publication.

I did not submit my paper elsewhere. I hope my paper will make it into the post-proceedings. How does it get there?

This takes seven easy steps:

  1. Submit an extended abstract of your work to us (deadline: Wed, May 13, 2015)
  2. Give a good presentation of your work at WEWoRC.
  3. Receive an invitation to submit a paper to the post-proceedings.
  4. Write the full paper (if you haven't done so already).
  5. Submit the full paper to us (deadline: Fri, Dec 4, 2015).
  6. The program committee reviews your paper.
  7. If your paper got accepted, revise it according to the comments from the program committee (if there are such comments) and submit the "camera-ready" version to us.
