ACM CCS 2020 - October 16-23, 2020

This year CCS is experimenting a new way for authors to pre-record their talk videos during pre-recording sessions. Authors who opted this method will present their paper live through a Zoom webinar, in sessions scheduled over a week’s time before the main conference. The purpose is to allow authors to present their work to a live audience, moderated by a session chair, as a means to creating a presentation experience closer to presenting in person. The talks will be recorded during the pre-recording sessions, and played during the main conference.

The pre-recording sessions are open to the public and there is no need to register to attend. Immediately after a session, all speakers and attendees are invited to join a coffee break on to meet and chat. This also helps you get familiarized with the virtual platform of the main conference.

For the general public, click one of the buttons to join the pre-recording sessions:

Join through Zoom
Join through*

* If you have a password

When you click to join, Zoom will prompt you to “register”. Please use your FIRST and LAST name as this will facilitate Q&A.
It is recommended to write a hello message in the chat when you join so others in the audience can see who else is in the audience.
After each presentation, there will be an opportunity for live Q&A. To ask a question, click on the “Raise Hand” button at the bottom of the screen. The session chair will call on you, allowing you to unmute yourself. When you are called on, please unmute yourself and ask your question.


All the times listed below are in U.S. Eastern Daylight Saving Time (UTC -4:00)
