Call For Papers


Security Operations Centers (SOC) are a field of growing interest for both researchers and SOC operators. SOC operators are increasingly recognized as a distinct class of security professionals who need tools and practices that address the distinct challenges and insights of their discipline. In parallel to this increased professionalization by the operational community is an increased interest in the academic community: researchers are studying SOC processes, workflows and training. The WOSOC workshop will serve as a common forum for both of these distinct groups to interact, present and cross-pollinate ideas across this young field.

SOC design and construction
SOC workflow and operations
Alert management, triage and prioritization
Incident response case studies
Network management techniques for encrypted traffic flows
Increasing SOC efficiency through automation
Threat hunting
Operational visualization and data summarization
Intelligence gathering, enrichment, and operations


WOSOC will accept short papers and talk proposals. We encourage researchers to submit short papers on ongoing or planned work that can be read by participants in advance of the event, and encourage operators to submit talk proposals to share insights, case studies and novel ideas. The 2023 workshop will schedule 20 minute slots for all speakers, broken into a 15 minute talk followed by a 5 minute Q&A period.

Submit papers and proposals (pdf or text format) to the WOSOC 2023 hotCRP site at

WOSOC short papers can cover emerging research, work in progress and position papers. Short papers must be between 4-8 pages excluding references. Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (.pdf).

To submit a paper, use the WOSOC 2023 hotCRP site at

Papers must use the NDSS templates. Papers must be formatted for US letter size (not A4) paper in a two-column layout, with columns no more than 9.25 in. high and 3.5 in. wide. The text must be in Times font, 10-point or larger, with 11-point or larger line spacing.

WOSOC talk proposals are intended to provide operational personnel a mechanism to discuss SOC-related topics at the workshop. Talk proposals must be submitted in text format.
