Instructions for Authors

Format

A paper submitted to TCHES must be written in English and be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or any identifying citations. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Submissions should be typeset in the LaTeX style available at https://tches.iacr.org/index.php/TCHES/submission, noting that TCHES only accepts electronic submission in PDF format. Please use the submission mode (\documentclass[submission]{iacrtrans}) that displays line numbers to ease the review process.

TCHES accepts two forms of paper, termed short and long; the page limit (excluding bibliography) is 20 and 40 pages respectively. Authors are encouraged to include additional supplementary material needed to validate the content (e.g., test vectors or source code) as separate files. In order to ensure that appendices are also reviewed, they need to be included before the bibliography within the 20 or 40-page limit during submission. In allowing long papers, the goal is to support cases where extra detail (e.g., proofs, or experimental results) is deemed essential. Long papers need to be marked as such by checking the respective box in the submission system and by annotating the title with "Long Paper:". Authors need to justify the need to submit the content as long paper in a justification letter included in the supplementary materials. Long papers submitted without proper justification will be returned without review. Authors of long papers should be aware that the review process may take longer: a decision may, at the discretion of the editor(s)-in-chief, be deferred to the subsequent volume.

TCHES solicits submission of Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers, i.e., papers whose goal is to review and contextualize existing literature in a particular area in order to systematize existing knowledge. To be considered for publication, SoK papers must provide significant added value beyond prior work, such as novel insights or reasonably questioning previous assumptions. Authors should highlight SoK papers by annotating the title with "SoK:".

Warning Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
