The Tenth International Conference on Provable Security (ProvSec 2016) will be held on November 10-12 2016 in Nanjing, China. It will be organized by Nanjing University of Finance and Economics.

Provable security is an important research area in modern cryptography. Cryptographic primitives or protocols without a rigorous proof cannot be regarded as secure in practice. In fact, there are many schemes that were originally thought as secure but eventually broken, which clearly indicates the need of formal security assurance. With provable security, we are confident in using cryptographic schemes and protocols in various real-world applications. Meanwhile, schemes with provable security sometimes give only theoretical feasibility rather than a practical construction, and correctness of the proofs may be difficult to verify. ProvSec conference thus provides a platform for researchers, scholars and practitioners to exchange new ideas for solving these problems in the provable security area.

The previous ProvSec conference series were successfully held in Wollongong, Australia (2007), Shanghai, China (2008), Guangzhou, China (2009), Malacca, Malaysia (2010), Xi'an, China (2011), Chengdu, China (2012) and Melaka, Malaysia (2013), Hong Kong, China (2014), Kanazawa, Japan (2015). The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
