Important dates 
 Deadline for the paper submission: March 3, 2014 
 Notification: April 14, 2014 

 Official languages: English and Russian 
 Paper language: English 
 Electronic presentation language: English 

Submission and Publication 

 Original papers on all technical aspects of cryptology are solicited for submission to CTCrypt 2014. Program committee plans to have regular sessions and posters presentations. It is also supposed that several invited talks from leading Russian experts in cryptography will be offered. 

 Program Committee invites submissions in the form of papers (up to 10 pages according to LaTeX options given below) in English. Proofs and other material which are omitted due to the space constraints should be put into a separate appendix dedicated for the referees. Submissions (in LaTeХ and PDF formats) should be sent as attachments by e-mail with subject line “CTCrypt 2014” to Anatoly Lunin ( The receipt confirmation will be sent within 3 days.

 Short abstracts of accepted papers will be published at CTCrypt 2014 web page before the workshop. Pre-proceedings of the workshop will be published on CD and distributed to the participants at the registration desk. Program committee plans to publish the final versions of selected papers in the post-proceedings of the workshop. The presentation of the paper at the workshop is a necessary prerequisite for the publication in the post-proceedings. 

 Please register through the registration page of

_mg_8567.jpg    The second day of the workshop, the "Practical Cryptography Day", will be dedicated to the practice of using cryptographic tools for ensuring information security in various areas: government, economy and business, private and social life, etc. The discussion is supposed to be attended by scientists, cryptographers, employees of state-owned companies, security product vendors and customers, and information security service providers. The discussion is intended to outline a strategic consolidated approach to information security in modern society. 

The questions to discuss: 
Practical aspects of cryptography usage in modern information protection tools
Legislation and regulation
Product certification
Secure application development
Security functions in software
Security inspection and monitoring, and application code analysis 
Vulnerabilities scanning techniques 
Does `certified’ mean `safe’?
Trusted environment - Myth or Reality?
Cryptography for government-controlled Internet
