Call For Papers



Call for Research Papers
Papers offering novel research contributions are solicited for submission.
Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by the ACM in
the symposium proceedings. In addition to the regular research track, this year
SACMAT will again host the special track -- "Blue Sky/Vision Track". Researchers
are invited to submit papers describing promising new ideas and challenges of
interest to the community as well as access control needs emerging from other
fields. We are particularly looking for potentially disruptive and new ideas
which can shape the research agenda for the next 10 years. We also encourage
submissions to the "Work-in-progress Track" to present ideas that may have not
been completely developed and experimentally evaluated.

New in ACM SACMAT 2022
We are moving ACM SACMAT 2022 to have two submission cycles. Authors submitting
papers in the first submission cycle will have the opportunity to receive a
major revision verdict in addition to the usual accept and reject verdicts.
Authors can decide to prepare a revised version of the paper and submit it to
the second submission cycle for consideration. Major revision papers will be
reviewed by the program committee members based on the criteria set forward by
them in the first submission cycle.

Regular Track Paper Submission and Format
Papers must be written in English. Authors are required to use the ACM format
for papers, using the two-column SIG Proceedings Template (the sigconf template
for LaTex) available in the following link:

The length of the paper in the proceedings format must not exceed twelve US
letter pages formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper and be no more than 5MB in size.
It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submissions will
print easily on simple default configurations. The submission must be anonymous,
so information that might identify the authors - including author names,
affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious self-citations - must be excluded.
It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is preserved
when citing their work. Submissions should be made to the EasyChair conference
management system by the paper submission deadline of:

February 25th, 2022 (FINAL DEADLINE Submission Cycle 2)
All submissions must contain a significant original contribution. That is,
submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published
or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop.
In particular, simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Wherever
appropriate, relevant related work, including that of the authors, must be cited.
Submissions that are not accepted as full papers may be invited to appear as
short papers. At least one author from each accepted paper must register for
the conference before the camera-ready deadline.

Blue Sky Track Paper Submission and Format
All submissions to this track should be in the same format as for the regular
track, but the length must not exceed ten US letter pages, and the submissions
are not required to be anonymized (optional). Submissions to this track should
be submitted to the EasyChair conference management system by the same deadline
as for the regular track.

Work-in-progress Track Paper Submission and Format
Authors are invited to submit papers in the newly introduced work-in-progress
track. This track is introduced for (junior) authors, ideally, Ph.D. and Master's
students, to obtain early, constructive feedback on their work. Submissions in
this track should follow the same format as for the regular track papers while
limiting the total number of pages to six US letter pages. Paper submitted in
this track should be anonymized and can be submitted to the EasyChair conference
management system by the same deadline as for the regular track.

Call for Lightning Talk
Participants are invited to submit proposals for 5-minute lightning talks
describing recently published results, work in progress, wild ideas, etc.
Lightning talks are a new feature of SACMAT, introduced this year to partially
replace the informal sharing of ideas at in-person meetings. Submissions are
expected  by May 27, 2022. Notification of acceptance will be on June 3, 2022.

Call for Posters
SACMAT 2022 will include a poster session to promote discussion of ongoing
projects among researchers in the field of access control and computer security.
Posters can cover preliminary or exploratory work with interesting ideas, or
research projects in the early stages with promising results in all aspects of
access control and computer security. Authors interested in displaying a poster
must submit a poster abstract in the same format as for the regular track, but
the length must not exceed three US letter pages, and the submission should not
be anonymized. The title should start with "Poster:". Accepted poster abstracts
will be included in the conference proceedings.

Submissions should be emailed to the poster chair by Apr 15th, 2022.
The subject line should include "SACMAT 2022 Poster:" followed by the poster

Call for Demos
A demonstration proposal should clearly describe (1) the overall architecture
of the system or technology to be demonstrated, and (2) one or more
demonstration scenarios that describe how the audience, interacting with the
demonstration system or the demonstrator, will gain an understanding of the
underlying technology. Submissions will be evaluated based on the motivation of
the work behind the use of the system or technology to be demonstrated and its
novelty. The subject line should include "SACMAT 2022 Demo:" followed by the
demo title.

Demonstration proposals should be in the same format as for the regular track,
but the length must not exceed four US letter pages, and the submission should
not be anonymized. A two-page description of the demonstration will be included
in the conference proceedings. Submissions should be emailed to the
Demonstrations Chair by Apr 15th, 2022.

Financial Conflict of Interest (COI) Disclosure:
In the interests of transparency and to help readers form their own judgments of
potential bias, ACM SACMAT requires authors and PC members to declare any
competing financial and/or non-financial interests in relation to the work

For the purposes of this policy, competing interests are defined as financial
and non-financial interests that could directly undermine, or be perceived to
undermine the objectivity, integrity, and value of a publication, through a
potential influence on the judgments and actions of authors with regard to
objective data presentation, analysis, and interpretation.

Financial competing interests include any of the following:

Funding: Research support (including salaries, equipment, supplies, and other
expenses) by organizations that may gain or lose financially through this
publication. A specific role for the funding provider in the conceptualization,
design, data collection, analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the
manuscript, should be disclosed.

Employment: Recent (while engaged in the research project), present or
anticipated employment by any organization that may gain or lose financially
through this publication.

Personal financial interests: Ownership or contractual interest in stocks or
shares of companies that may gain or lose financially through publication;
consultation fees or other forms of remuneration (including reimbursements
for attending symposia) from organizations that may gain or lose financially;
patents or patent applications (awarded or pending) filed by the authors or
their institutions whose value may be affected by publication. For patents and
patent applications, disclosure of the following information is requested:
patent applicant (whether author or institution), name of the inventor(s),
application number, the status of the application, specific aspect of manuscript
covered in the patent application.

It is difficult to specify a threshold at which a financial interest becomes
significant, but note that many US universities require faculty members to
disclose interests exceeding $10,000 or 5% equity in a company. Any such figure
is necessarily arbitrary, so we offer as one possible practical alternative
guideline: "Any undeclared competing financial interests that could embarrass
you were they to become publicly known after your work was published."

We do not consider diversified mutual funds or investment trusts to constitute
a competing financial interest. Also, for employees in non-executive or
leadership positions, we do not consider financial interest related to stocks
or shares in their company to constitute a competing financial interest, as
long as they are publishing under their company affiliation.

Non-financial competing interests: Non-financial competing interests can take
different forms, including personal or professional relations with
organizations and individuals. We would encourage authors and PC members to
declare any unpaid roles or relationships that might have a bearing on the
publication process. Examples of non-financial competing interests include (but
are not limited to):

* Unpaid membership in a government or non-governmental organization
* Unpaid membership in an advocacy or lobbying organization
* Unpaid advisory position in a commercial organization
* Writing or consulting for an educational company
* Acting as an expert witness
