Call for Workshops


Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2014. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of security research.

A workshop associated with CCS must be one full day in length. Proceedings of all such workshops will be available (on a CD) to the workshop attendees. Each workshop will also have on-line proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a separate ISBN. Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chair:

Workshop Proposal Submission

For new workshops, proposals should include:

  • Workshop title
  • A draft “Call for Papers” articulating the scope and topics covered by the workshop
  • A brief summary and justification for the workshop, including anticipated benefits to the ACM CCS community.
  • Proposed format and agenda
  • Expected number of submissions and acceptance rate
  • Expected number of attendees
  • Program chair(s), and, if available, tentative program committee
  • A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience

For previously-held workshops, in addition to the above, proposals must provide the following information, for the most recent incarnation of the workshop:

  • Number of submissions
  • Number of accepted papers
  • Number of registered attendees

Please submit workshop proposals by email to the ACM CCS Workshop Chairs.
All workshop proposals will be reviewed by the CCS Steering Committee.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

  • The workshop is within the scope of computer and communications security and concerns a coherent and important technical topic of high interest in the community.
  • Its novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to other CCS workshops.
  • Its likely impact on the target community, including likely high participation.
  • One of the best ways to show likely interest is to have a strong set of researchers who have agreed to serve on the PC.
