Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding information assurance in the context of finance and commerce. The conference covers all aspects of securing transactions and systems. Submissions focusing on both theoretical (fundamental) and applied real-world deployments are solicited. The goal of the conference is to bring security/cryptography researchers and practitioners together with economists, bankers, implementers, and policy-makers. Intimate and colorful by tradition, the FC program features invited talks, academic presentations, technical demonstrations, panel discussions as well as a research poster session.

FC08 will take place in Cozumel, Mexico, between 28-31 January 2008. Please browse the call for papers and the rest of the website for further information and logistics.

Free Child Care

This year we are happy to offer free child care as part of the conference. The hotel offers a kids' club, with supervised childcare and activities from 9am to 5pm for children of age 5-12 whose parents are somewhere on the premises (in the conference room is fine). This is free of charge for hotel guests. Baby-sitting is available for US$5 per child per hour. Additionally, as part of the room rate for conference attendees, children of age 0-12 are free of charge (including food).

Financial Assistance for Primary Care Giver

We will provide financial assistance to a scholar who is a primary care giver, and who has their research paper accepted for presentation. $750 will be awarded to pay for childcare and other family-related expenses related to attending the conference. Please see announcement here
This conference is organized annually by the International Financial Cryptography Association.
