Call for Papers

Third international conference on E-voting and Identity

Motivation and Scope

Electronic voting is a very active research area covering a broad range of issues, from computer security and cryptographic issues to human psychology and legal issues. The aim of VoteID is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and governmental institutions, all working on e-voting systems. The scope covers all aspects of electronic voting systems, including, but not limited to:

  • design and evaluation of e-voting systems
  • voting theories incl. social choice theory
  • security requirements and formal analysis of e-voting systems
  • the role of identification in e-voting
  • the role of identity management systems for e-voting
  • cryptographic voting schemes
  • further methods for reconciling voter identification with vote anonymity
  • usability and accessibility issues
  • deployment and lifecycle concerns for e-voting systems
  • implementation issues and trade-offs
  • interdisciplinary issues in e-voting and identification
  • verifiable election technologies

The proceedings of VoteID 2007 and VoteID 2009 appeared as volumes 4896 and 5767 in Springer LNCS. The proceedings of VoteID 2011 will be published in LNCS as well.
