ACM CCS 2020 - November 9-13, 2020

CCS will again include poster/demonstration sessions in order to provide a forum to present and discuss works in progress, industry demonstrations of new applications or techniques, research demonstrations and test beds, upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the field of computer and communications security. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Participation of researchers and developers from industry and posters/demonstrations reporting on joint work between industry and academia are therefore especially encouraged.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are asked to submit a short proposal that describes the main contributions of the poster or demonstration. Proposals should contain a brief abstract, place an emphasis on the motivation for the work, and summarize contributions being presented. Preliminary results may also be included. The proposal should clearly state the difference of the work that will be presented with any paper published or under submission on the same topic. Presentation proposals will be evaluated primarily on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, facilitate the exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations. Authors of accepted poster proposals will be provided instructions for preparing the posters. Online platforms will be provided to display all accepted posters and interact with attendees. Authors of demonstration proposals should be ready to present the demos in a virtual conference, with proper A/V equipment for capturing the demo and feeding into the virtual conference platform. Questions shall be directed via email to the Poster/Demo Chair.

Proposals should adhere to the ACM double-column format with 3-page maximum (i.e., including title, abstract, content, and any references). Proposals are not blinded, and must contain the authors’ names, affiliations, and contact information. Submissions that are not formatted as described above are subject to rejection without review. All submissions must designate a single corresponding author. In order to be included in the conference, at least one presenter per accepted poster/demo must register for the conference. The accepted posters/demos will be published in the proceedings.

The poster/demo submission system is available at:
