Call For Papers


The 26th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
21-25 March 2011, Tunghai University, Taichung, Taiwan
Track on Computer Security (10th edition)

SAC 2011

For the past twentytwo years the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has been a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer
engineers and application developers to gather, interact, and present
their research. SAC is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP (; its proceedings
are published by ACM in both printed form and CD-ROM; they are also
available on the web through the ACM Digital Library
( More information about SIGAPP and past editions
of SAC can be found at

2011 Track on Computer Security (10th edition)

The Security Track reaches its tenth edition this year, thus appearing
among the most established tracks in the Symposium. The list of issues
remains vast, ranging from protocols to workflows.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to

* software security (protocols, operating systems, etc.)
* hardware security (smartcards, biometric technologies, etc.)
* mobile security (properties for/from mobile agents, etc.)
* network security (anti-virus, anti-hacker, anti-DoS tools,
firewalls, real-time monitoring, etc.)
* alternatives to cryptography (steganography, etc.)
* security-specific software development practices (vulnerability
testing, fault-injection resilience, etc.)
* privacy and anonymity (trust management, pseudonymity, identity
management, electronic voting, etc.)
* safety and dependability issues (reliability, survivability, etc.)
* cyberlaw and cybercrime (copyrights, trademarks, defamation,
intellectual property, etc.)
* security management and usability issues (security configuration,
policy management, usability trials etc.)
* workflow and service security (business processes, web services, etc.)

Submission Guidelines

The submission guidelines must be strictly followed for a paper to be

Original papers from the above mentioned or other related areas will be
considered. Only full papers about original and unpublished research are
sought. Parallel submission to other conferences or other tracks of SAC
2011 is forbidden. Each paper must be BLIND in the sense that it must
only include its title but not mention anything about its authors.
Self-reference must be blind too. All submissions must be formatted
using the ACM conference-specific LaTeX style, which can be obtained
from the symposium web page (
The standard extension of a submission in the stated format is 6 pages.
Longer papers (up to 8 pages maximum) will imply an additional charge.
All papers must be submitted by *24 August 2010*.

There is a symposium-wide paper management system for SAC 2011, which
authors must use to submit their papers.

Review and publication of accepted papers

Each paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by
at least three referees.Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC
2011 proceedings. Some papers may only be accepted as poster papers, and
will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the proceedings.
According to the authors' guidelines, which can be obtained from the
symposium web page (, at
least one author per paper must register before their paper is included
in the proceedings.
