ACM CCS 2016 Call for Sponsors

23rd ACM Conference on Computer and Communication Security
October 24 – 28, 2016, Hofburg Palace, Vienna, Austria

The ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) is the annual flagship conference of the Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). CCS is ACM’s oldest conference in the security area. It brings together researchers and developers from academia, government agencies, research labs and the corporate sector from all over the world. It provides an environment to conduct intellectual discussions and exchange ideas that are instrumental in shaping the future of computer and communications security. From its inception, CCS has established itself as a high standard research conference in the area of computer and communications security. This reputation continues to grow and is reflected in the high selectivity and prestige of the technical programs.

CCS witnessed a record increase of attendees and a significant increase in paper submissions. This is a testimony to the growth and vitality of IT security, and the growing importance of CCS as a flagship conference in this area. Over the past few years, CCS has broadened its scope to include tutorial sessions, specialized workshops, industry tracks, posters and demos. In addition, CCS has increased the number of technical tracks and the scope of the technical program committee to include a wide spectrum of research.

Due to the record increase of submissions CCS will feature in 2016 for the first time four paper tracks. Further, the Program Committe will be led by three PC Co-Chairs.

Target group

CCS 2016 will be held for the second time in a European city since 2000. The success of CCS 2013 in Berlin (first time held in Europe in 13 years) can give an estimated numbers of participants, their origin and profession we will attract in 2016 in Vienna:
