IEEE S&P Workshops 2021 : Announcing IEEE S&P 2021 Call for Workshops
Call For Papers
Call for Workshops - IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy 2021
Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP) has been the premier forum for the presentation of developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. To expand opportunities for scientific exchanges, the IEEE CS Technical Committee on Security and Privacy created the Security and Privacy Workshops (SPW). The typical purpose of such a workshop is to cover a specific aspect of security and privacy in more detail, making it easy for the participants to attend IEEE SP and a specialized workshop at SPW with just one trip. Furthermore, the co-location offers synergies for the organizers. The number of workshops and attendees has grown steadily during recent years. Workshops can be annual events, one time events, or aperiodic.
The 2021 Security and Privacy Workshops will be held on Thursday, May 27, 2021. All workshops will occur on that day. Up to six workshops will be hosted by SPW.
### Important Dates

Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
### Proposal Requirements
There will be some interaction in deciding upon and setting up a workshop, but the initial proposal should already contain a considerable amount of information. A workshop proposal template is available online at the IEEE S&P “Call for Workshops” website ( https://www.ieee-security.org/TC/SP2021/cfworkshops.html), providing instructions and a more detailed description of information to include in proposals:
* Workshop organizers
* Workshop length
* Technical proposal
* Topics to be addressed
* Importance of these topics
* Preliminary call for papers/posters/contributions
* Preliminary program committee
* Proposed review process
* Expected number of participants
* Publication policy
* Workshop planning schedule
* Publicity plan
* Special meeting logistics requirements
If there are problems using this template, contact email@example.com.
### Support to Workshop Organizers
All workshops associated with the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy will be under the financial and legal responsibility of the IEEE Computer Society. This has great advantages for organizers, e.g., with respect to risk coverage and insurance, but also entails some responsibilities and constraints. The SPW organizers can help you with the following: meeting rooms at the conference hotel, meeting logistics (A/V, meals, etc.), registration, awards production, publishing proceedings with IEEE conference publication services (via IEEEXplore) and workshop publicity complimentary with IEEE S&P publicity efforts. Workshops will be advertised through, and workshop websites can be hosted at, ieee-security.org. The SPW committee will also help with publicity via mechanisms available to the IEEE Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, like the Cipher newsletter, and email lists of past attendees (those with opt-in).
### Responsibilities of Workshop Organizers
Workshop organizers have responsibility for maintaining their workshop website; publicity for their workshop; soliciting, reviewing, and accepting papers; constructing the final program; and all interactions with authors, speakers, etc. Reviewing should be done in accordance with IEEE guidelines (3 reviews per paper, avoid conflict of interest (COI), program chair must review all comments before they are sent back to authors, etc.) If you are interested, we will send you a more detailed list of the responsibilities, meeting room configuration options, template schedule for sessions, etc., and would hope to jointly set up a successful workshop.
### Workshop Evaluation Criteria
The purpose of SPW is to complement IEEE S&P and provide an environment conducive to new ideas and discussion. The criteria for evaluation are intended assess workshop proposals in this context by considering the following:
* Organizational details: Is the workshop CFP clear, sensible, and thorough?
* Suitability for SPW by topic
* Suitability for IEEE S&P attendees: Would a conference attendee want to attend the workshop?
* Technical merit
* Conflict or overlap with existing workshops, both those hosted with SPW and others in the community
* Likelihood of workshop success
* Preliminary call for participation: Is it clear about the workshop's purpose?
* Proposal quality
* Anticipated attendance: Workshops should have between 30 and 50 attendees
* Organizing committee: One or more of the organizers should have experience in organizing successful technical events
