Call For Papers

3rd Workshop on Attribute Based Access Control
March 21, 2018, Tempe, Arizona, USA

Attribute based access control is rapidly becoming a flexible form of access control, and has received significant attention recently. The goal of this third Workshop on Attribute Access Control (ABAC 2018), to be held in conjunction with the 8th ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security and Privacy (CODASPY 2018), is to foster a community of researchers interested in all aspects of attribute based access control. ABAC 2018 seeks submissions from diverse communities, including academic and corporate researchers, open-source projects, standardization bodies, governments, system and security administrators, software engineers and application domain experts.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of attribute based access control are solicited for submission to this workshop. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

ABAC models

Federated ABAC

ABAC administration

Attribute assurance

Safety and expressive power

Privacy-preserving ABAC models and mechanisms

ABAC model/system verification and testing

ABAC policy engineering and mining

ABAC in the context of specific technological domains such as: cloud computing, mobile computing, IoT and Blockchain

ABAC versus other access control models

ABAC in distributed systems

ABAC applications and use cases

Papers that primarily focus on other areas without a clear relationship to attribute based access control are outside the scope of this workshop.

Instructions for Paper Authors

Full-length papers can be of at most 12 pages in double-column ACM format (as specified at including the bibliography and well-marked appendices.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

We also invite short position papers on perspectives on ABAC and work in progress papers. Such papers can be of length 1-8 pages in double-column ACM format (as specified at, and must clearly state “Position Paper” or “Work in Progress”, as the case may be, in the title section of the paper. These papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

All submissions should be made electronically at:

TBA (Please see workshop website shortly)

We further invite proposals for panel discussion topics (1 page). Panel discussion topics can be directly emailed to Ram Krishnan (
