Present CFP : 2024

The 29th Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems will take place at Karlstad University from 6th to 7th of November 2024.

Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems
NordSec is an annual research conference series that has been running since 1996. The NordSec conferences address a broad range of topics on IT security. The events bring together security researchers from the Nordic countries, Northern Europe, and beyond. In addition to being a venue for academic publishing, NordSec is an important meeting place for university faculty, students, and industry researchers and experts from the region. In 2024, the conference has special focus on Security and Privacy Engineering, acknowledging the challenge of addressing issues in the development of socio-technical systems, as found within areas of complex societal infrastructures, health and social care, smart cities and communities, national security, and many other industry sectors (e.g., automotive, energy, banking). In this edition, we also highlight the growing impact of AI/ML to the security and privacy research fields.

NordSec addresses a broad range of topics within cybersecurity, with the aim of bringing together computer security researchers and practitioners, encouraging interaction between academia and industry.

Proceedings will be published in Springer LNCS, Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Contributions should reflect original research, developments, studies, or experience. Submitted papers should not exceed 16 pages (excluding references and appendices) in Springer LNCS format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.

Submission guidelines
All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.

Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.

Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author.

We encourage the inclusion of anonymized digital research artifacts in the form of anonymized download links in the submitted manuscript. Tools like could be useful to authors to anonymize links and contents of research artifacts consisting in code repositories.

Submissions should be formatted using the Springer LNCS format and must not exceed 16 pages (excluding well-marked appendices, and references), with an overall limit of 20 pages. Appendices may be included to assist reviewers who may have questions that fall outside the stated contribution of the paper on which your work is to be evaluated or to provide details that would only be of interest to a small minority of readers. Reviewers are not required to read any appendices, so the paper should be self-contained without them. Finally, notice that, according to latest LNCS guidelines, if a paper includes appendices, they should be placed in front of the references. Please refer to the Springer Instructions for Authors document for further details!

There is an Overleaf template available for the Springer LNCS format.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.

Papers must be written in English and submitted online in PDF format at

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must agree with Springer LNCS copyright and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.

By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will physically attend the conference to present it.

NordSec 2024 will publish fully digital online proceedings with Springer Nature in the LNCS series. All authors will get time-limited full access to the full text proceedings.
