Modern societies are becoming dependent on information, automation, and communication technologies more than ever. Managing the security of the emerging systems, many of them safety critical, poses significant challenges. The 13th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security (GameSec-22) will take place on October 26-28, 2022 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. It focuses on protection of heterogeneous, large-scale and dynamic cyber-physical systems as well as managing security risks faced by critical infrastructures through rigorous and practically relevant analytical methods.

GameSec 2022 invites novel, high-quality theoretical and practically relevant contributions, which apply decision and game theory to security problems. The goal of the conference is to bring together academic, government, and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major challenges and recent results that highlight the connections between game
theory, control, distributed optimization, machine learning, economic incentives, real-world security, reputation, trust and privacy problems.

GameSec-22 is planned to be a physical event. Requests of remote attendance, e.g., due to visa issues or travel restrictions, may be accommodated if necessary. For more travel details, including the up-to-date Covid regulations, please refer to

Paper Submission Guideline

Each submission should be previously unpublished work that is not currently
under submission to another conference. Submissions can be (but do not have to
be) anonymized. **Full paper** submissions are not to exceed **20 pages**
including references and well-formatted appendices. Full papers should make a
strong technical contribution and adequately highlight the novel aspects of
the work in relation to related research.

### **Submission instructions**

Prospective authors are encouraged to register their paper by uploading title,
authors, and a short abstract (a few hundred words, not an extended abstract)
by the abstract submission deadline, 23:59 PST time. Then, authors can update
the title, authors, abstract and submit a PDF file with the full paper by the
full paper submission deadline, 23:59 PST time. Submitting an abstract is not
mandatory. Authors can still submit a full paper by the final deadline without
having previously submitted an abstract.

### Paper Preparation

All submissions must adhere to the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) format (
For a detailed description, please consult the Author Guidelines for the
Preparation of Contributions to Springer Computer Science
Proceedings (
The LaTex2e template which supports hyperlinks for the online versions can be
downloaded (in zip format) at As a sample, the source files of the Author
Instructions ( are also made available by Springer. Although
discouraged to use, template files for Office 2007
Word ( and Office 2003
Word ( are also provided.

The authors are advised to carefully read the explanatory typing instruction
documents contained within the corresponding archive file. Please note that
the wide empty margins are to be expected. The LNCS series will be published
in a smaller than A4 cut, and hence the margins will be rectified by the

Authors should consult Springer's authors'
guidelines ( and use their proceedings
templates, either for
[LaTeX]( or for
for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include
their [ORCIDs]( in their papers. In addition, the
corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of
that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The
corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding
author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes
relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
