This year, CCS will again include poster/demonstration sessions in order to provide a forum to present and discuss works in progress, industry demonstrations of new applications or techniques, research demonstrations and test beds, recent research and implementation results, upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the field of computer and communications security. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Participation of researchers and developers from industry and posters/demonstrations reporting on joint work between industry and academia are therefore especially encouraged.

Authors are asked to submit a short proposal that describes the main contributions of the poster or demonstration. Proposals should contain a brief abstract, place an emphasis on the motivation for the work, and summarize contributions being presented.  Preliminary results may also be included. Presentation proposals will be evaluated primarily on their potential to stimulate interesting discussion, facilitate the exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations. Authors of accepted poster proposals will be provided instructions for preparing the posters. Tripods will be provided to display all accepted posters. Authors of demonstration proposals should clearly describe the amount of space and any specific equipment (e.g., tables, power strips, etc.) required for the demonstration via email to the Poster/Demo co-chairs.

Posters/Demos Submission

Abstracts should adhere to the ACM double-column format with 3 pages maximum (i.e., including title, abstract, content, and any references). Proposals are not blinded, and must contain the authors' names, affiliations, and contact information. All poster titles should begin with the keyword "POSTER: ".

Update: Submissions should be emailed to both Adam Lee ( and Haining Wang ( by 1:00 PM EDT on Sunday, August 7th. Submissions that are not formatted as described above risk rejection without review.

All submissions must designate a single corresponding author. In order to be included in the conference, at least one presenter per accepted poster/demo must register for the conference. The accepted posters/demos will be published in the CD proceedings and their titles should start with "POSTER:" .
