ACM WiSec 2011

Submission Instructions

All papers for WiSec 2011 must be submitted electronically through the EasyChair Conference Management System The deadline for submission is extended to December 8, 2010 at 23:59 in PST timezone (UTC -8).

Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions must fit properly on US "Letter"-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches) and must be prepared using one of the ACM proceedings templates from

We plan to have two types of papers in WiSec 2011:
  • Full papers (up to 12 pages in the ACM conference style) that report on weighty and mature research results
  • Short papers (up to 6 pages in the ACM conference style) that describe pithy results or exciting work-in-progress

Submissions for full papers must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format (note: pages must be numbered), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices and at most 12 pages overall. Submissions for short papers must be at most 6 pages overall. At the time of submission, authors should assign their submission to one of three categories ("full paper only", or "short paper only", or "full paper with possible consideration as short paper"). Those authors who choose the last category commit to shortening their paper in case it is accepted as a short paper. Committee members are not required to read appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Papers shorter than the maximum page limit are welcome and encouraged.

All submitted papers will be evaluated through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers until all reviews have been completed. Therefore, an author's name should only occur in references to that author's related work, which should be referenced in the third person and not overtly distinguishable from the referenced work of others. Author names for all papers will be revealed to reviewers after completion of the review process, to discourage abuse of the system.

Submission is a commitment from the authors that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is ACM policy ( not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.

Submissions not meeting all of the above guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Please direct any questions about the paper submission process to the Program Co-Chairs at
