CMS 2005 is the 9th Communications and Multimedia Security conference. Previous conferences have been held in Darmstadt (CMS 2001), Portoroz (CMS 2002), Torino (CMS 2003), and Windermere (CMS 2004). CMS is a joint working conference of IFIP TC6 and TC11. The CMS conference attempts to be a forum for researchers working on all aspects of communications and multimedia security. This year the organizers especially encourage submissions on topics such as security of information hiding, combined encryption and watermarking schemes, XML security
and network security. Papers should have practical relevance to the construction or evaluation of secure systems; theoretical papers should demonstrate their practical significance.

Topics: We solicit papers describing original ideas and research results related to the Communication and Multimedia Security area. Suggested topics include - but are not limited to:

Applied cryptography
Privacy protection
Security for mobile devices
Security of multimedia content
Network security
Secure Electronic Commerce

Instruction for Authors:

The on-site proceedings will be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions must be written in English, formatted in the Springer LNCS style (limited to 10 pages). In order to enable double-blind refereeing, the paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification; its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper.
Authors are requested to submit original papers only. Papers that have previously been published and papers that are currently being considered for publication by another journal or conference are not eligible.
All submitted papers will be refereed by members of the Program Committee for correctness, originality, relevance to the conference, and quality of presentation.
