SACMAT 2019 : 24th ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Conference Series : Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Call For Papers
GENERAL CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
24th ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada
June 4-6, 2019
The organizing committee of the 24th ACM Symposium on Access Control
Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2019) invites contributions in all
aspects of access control. The symposium will provide participants the
opportunity to present work at different levels of development, from
early work on promising ideas to fully developed technical results as
well as system demonstrations.
CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS
Papers offering novel research contributions are solicited for submission.
Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by the ACM
in the symposium proceedings. In addition to the regular research track, this
year SACMAT will again host a special track -- “Blue Sky/Vision Track”.
Researchers are invited to submit papers describing promising new ideas and
challenges of interest to the community as well as access control needs emerging
from other fields. We are particularly looking for potentially disruptive and new
ideas which can shape the research agenda for the next 10 years. We encourage
submissions that present ideas that may have not been completely developed and
Submissions to the regular track covering any relevant area of access control
are welcomed. Areas include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Access control for edge computing
- Applied machine learning for access management
- Attribute-based systems
- Big data
- Cloud computing and network access control management
- Cryptographic approaches
- Cyber attacks and network dynamics
- Cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things (IoT)
- Databases and data management
- Data protection on untrusted infrastructure
- Design methodology
- Distributed and mobile systems
- Economic models and game theory
- Enforcement mechanisms
- Hardware enhanced security
- Identity management
- Identification of and protection from data leakage
- Mechanisms, systems, and tools
- Models and extensions
- Privacy-aware access control
- Policy engineering and analysis
- Risk and uncertainty
- Safety analysis
- Theoretical foundations
- Trust management
REGULAR TRACK PAPER SUBMISSION AND FORMAT
Papers must be written in English. Authors are required to use the ACM format
for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates in the following link:
The length of the paper in the proceedings format must not exceed twelve US
letter pages formatted for 8.5” x 11” paper and be no more than 5MB in size.
It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submission will
print easily on simple default configurations. The submission must be anonymous,
so information that might identify the authors - including author names,
affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious self-citations - must be excluded. It
is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is preserved when
citing their own work. Submissions should be made to the EasyChair conference
management system by the paper submission deadline of February 10, 2019:
All submissions must contain a significant original contribution. That is, submitted
papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. In particular,
simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Wherever appropriate,
relevant related work, including that of the authors, must be cited. Submissions
that are not accepted as full papers may be invited to appear as short papers. At
least one author from each accepted paper much register for the conference prior
to the camera-ready deadline.
BLUE SKY TRACK PAPER SUBMISSION AND FORMAT
All submissions to the Blue Sky/Vision Track should follow the same ACM format of
the regular track but the length of the paper in the proceedings format must not
exceed ten US letter pages. Submissions to this track should NOT be blinded for
review. Submissions to the Blue Sky track should be submitted to the EasyChair
conference management system by the paper submission deadline of February 10, 2019.
CALL FOR POSTERS
SACMAT 2019 will include a poster session to promote discussion of ongoing projects
among researchers in the access control field. Posters can cover preliminary or
exploratory work with interesting ideas, or research projects in early stages with
promising results in all aspects of access control. Authors interested in having
a poster must submit a poster extended abstracts of up to three pages (including
all sections) formatted like regular research papers, but not anonymized; titles
should start with the keyword "Poster:". Accepted poster abstracts will be included
in the conference proceedings. All submissions must be in PDF format.
Submissions should be emailed to poster session chair, Murtuza Jadliwala
(email@example.com) by Apr 1, 2019, 5pm PT.
Please include the text "2019 SACMAT POSTER" in the email subject line.
CALL FOR DEMOS
The demonstration proposal should clearly describe (1) the overall architecture of
the system or technology to be demonstrated, and (2) one or more demonstration
scenarios that describe how the audience, interacting with the demonstration system
or the demonstrator, will gain an understanding of the underlying technology.
Submissions will be evaluated based on the motivation of the work behind the
use of the system or technology to be demonstrated and its novelty.
Demonstration proposals should be no longer than four pages and should use the
formatting guidelines described above for regular papers. However, demonstration
proposals are not subject to double-blind reviewing, hence the author(s) name and
affiliation(s) should be included in the submission. A two-page description of the
demonstration will be included in the final proceedings.
Please e-mail the submission directly to the Demonstrations Chair, Axel Kern
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by Apr 1, 2019, 5pm PT.
CALL FOR PANELS
Panel proposals should be no longer than two pages, and should identify potential
panelists, indicating those who have confirmed their willingness to participate.
We especially solicit panels with participants from industry and/or government.
Proposals can be e-mailed to the Panels Chair, Aniket Kate (email@example.com) by
Apr 1, 2019, 5pm PT.
