The organizers of the workshop solicit papers discussing the technical and operational difficulties of anti-malware testing. This may include surveys and position papers, proposals for innovative approaches, quantitative analysis of testing, and field reports or research results on testing. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics that may be covered:

- Static file sample testing (“On-demand testing”)
- Malware sample storage and labelling
- Sample selection for static testing
- Dynamic testing using malicious URL
- URL samples selection
- Internal testing for product improvement
- User-experience evaluation and testing
- Comparative testing
- Remediation testing
- Automated testing facilities
- Testing with human subjects
- Testing “in-the-cloud” anti-malware products
- Measuring anti-malware vendor responsiveness (“time to protect”)
- Interpretation and validation of test results
- Economics of anti-malware testing

Paper submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with publically available proceedings. Papers must be written in English. Maximum paper length will be 4-6 printed pages in IEEE 2-column style. Authors of accepted papers must register for the workshop (minimum one registration per paper) and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.
