Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC'05) is the premier international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding security in the context of finance and commerce. We have augmented our conference title and expanded our scope to cover all aspects of securing transactions and systems. These aspects include a range of technical areas such as: cryptography, payment systems, secure transaction architectures, software systems and tools, user and operator interfaces, fraud prevention, secure IT infrastructure, and analysis methodologies. Our focus will also encompass legal, financial, business and policy aspects. Material both on theoretical (fundamental) aspects of securing systems and on secure applications and real- world deployments will be considered.

The conference goal is to bring together top cryptographers, data-security specialists, and scientists with economists, bankers, implementers, and policy makers. Intimate and colorful by tradition, the FC'05 program will feature invited talks, academic presentations, technical demonstrations, and panel discussions. This conference is organized annually by the International Financial Cryptography Association (IFCA).
