Paper Submission Information

The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research results in all practical and theoretical aspects of computer and communications security. Papers should be related to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems. Theoretical papers must make a convincing argument for the relevance of the results to secure systems. All topic areas related to computer and communications security are of interest and in scope. Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in the conference proceedings. Outstanding papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Information and System Security. Further concrete instructions and submissions rules and regulations will be published in the Call for Papers which will be accessible via the conference web page.

Paper Submission Process

Submissions must be made by the deadline of Wednesday, May 8, 2013 23:59 (UTC – 11), through this EasyChair website.

Authors will be notified of the first-phase reviews on Monday, June 24, 2013 and can send back their comments by Monday, July 1, 2013 23:59 (UTC – 11).

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Note that submitted papers cannot be withdrawn from the process after the first phase reviews are received by authors. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.

Paper Format

Submissions must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages overall. Submissions must be anonymized and avoid obvious self-references. Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
