ACNS
 
International Conference on
Applied Cryptography and Network Security
                                 

ACNS is
an annual conference
focusing on current developments that advance the areas of applied cryptography, cybersecurity (including network & computer security) and privacy. The goal is to represent both academic research works as well as developments in industrial and technical frontiers. ACNS receives strong support in the communities of cryptography and security, which is reflected from its organizers, program committee, and very competitive paper acceptance rate.

ACNS gives the best student paper award, to encourage promising students to publish their best results at this promising conference. There is a monetary prize of Euro 1000 sponsored by Springer from 2019.


ACNS initiated satellite workshops
from 2019. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of cybersecurity research.
