S&P 2014 : IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
Call For Papers
Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for computer security research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of security or privacy. Papers may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of secure systems.
Topics of interest include:
Attacks and defenses
Censorship and censorship-resistance
Distributed systems security
Embedded systems security
Mobile security and privacy
Secure information flow
Security and privacy policies
Usable security and privacy
Web security and privacy
This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; S&P is interested in all aspects of computer security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.
Given the rapidly expanding and maturing security and privacy community, we hope to increase the acceptance rate of papers that are more "far-reaching" and "risky," as long as those papers also show sufficient promise for creating interesting discussions and questioning widely-held beliefs.
Systematization of Knowledge Papers
Following the success of the previous year’s conferences, we are also soliciting papers focused on systematization of knowledge (SoK). The goal of this call is to encourage work that evaluates, systematizes, and contextualizes existing knowledge. These papers can provide a high value to our community but may not be accepted because of a lack of novel research contributions. Suitable papers include survey papers that provide useful perspectives on major research areas, papers that support or challenge long-held beliefs with compelling evidence, or papers that provide an extensive and realistic evaluation of competing approaches to solving specific problems. Submissions are encouraged to analyze the current research landscape: identify areas that have enjoyed much research attention, point out open areas with unsolved challenges, and present a prioritization that can guide researchers to make progress on solving important challenges. Submissions will be distinguished by the prefix “SoK:” in the title and a checkbox on the submission form. They will be reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research contributions the emphasis will be on value to the community. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings.
The Symposium is also soliciting submissions for co-located workshops. Workshop proposals should be sent by September 13, 2013. Details on submissions can be found at http://ieee-security.org/TC/SPW2014/
All deadlines are 23:59:59 CET (UTC+01).
