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
