Once submitted to NPSec, a paper
cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or
journal until the NPSec acceptance decision is known. To
do so is to risk wasting one of our community's scarcest
resources: reviewer effort. Similarly, a paper that is
under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or
journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to NPSec.
Submit a paper to NPSec 2005.
Note: Registration Policy
The organizers of NPSec have

"At least one of the authors of
