Dear Colleague,

This is a call for papers for the Financial Cryptography and Data
Security Conference in Cozumel, Mexico, 28-31 January, 2008

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 fundamental and applied
real-world deployments are solicited.

This year, for the first time, we are also accepting submissions for
posters and short papers. The poster session is the perfect venue to
share a provocative opinion, interesting established or preliminary
work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion. Poster presenters
will benefit from a multi-hour session to discuss their work, get
exposure, and receive feedback from attendees. The intention behind
short papers (peer-reviewed) is to encourage authors to introduce
work in progress, novel applications and corporate or industrial
experiences. Short papers will be evaluated with a focus on novelty
and potential for sparking participants' interest and future

Free Child Care

We are also 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 also 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.
