Call For Papers
Since 1980 in Oakland, 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 We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of security or privacy.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:

    Access control and authorization
    Accountability
    Anonymity
    Application security
    Attacks and defenses
    Authentication
    Censorship resistance
    Cloud security
    Distributed systems security
    Economics of security and privacy
    Embedded systems security
    Forensics
    Hardware security
    Intrusion detection and prevention
    Malware and unwanted software
    Mobile and Web security and privacy
    Language-based security
    Network and systems security
    Privacy technologies and mechanisms
    Protocol security
    Secure information flow
    Security and privacy for the Internet of Things
    Security and privacy metrics
    Security and privacy policies
    Security architectures
    Usable 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.

Systematization of Knowledge Papers

As in past years, we solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge, as such papers can provide a high value to our community. Suitable papers are those that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or present a convincing, comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate. 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, but they will be accepted based on their treatment of existing work and value to the community, and not based on any new research results they may contain. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings.

Ongoing Submissions

To enhance the quality and timeliness of the scientific results presented as part of the Symposium, and to improve the quality of our reviewing process, IEEE S&P now accepts paper submissions 12 times a year, on the first of each month. The detailed process is as follows.

    A rolling deadline occurs on the 1st of each month, at 3:00 PM (UTC-7, i.e., PDT). This deadline is strict and no extensions will be granted.
    Within two months of submission, author notifications of Accept/Revise/Reject decisions will be sent out.
    Within one month of acceptance, all accepted papers must submit a camera-ready copy incorporating reviewer feedback. The papers will immediately be published, open access, in the Computer Society’s Digital Library, and they may be cited as “To appear in the IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy, May 20XX”.
    A limited number of papers will be invited to submit a revision; such papers will receive a specific set of expectations to be met by that revision. Authors may take up to three months from decision notification to produce a revised manuscript and submit it as part of the standard deadline on the 1st of the month. Authors will receive decisions on revisions within one month. See below for additional details on the resubmission procedure.
    Rejected papers must wait for one year, from the date of original submission, to resubmit to IEEE S&P.
        A paper will be judged to be a resubmit (as opposed to a new submission) if the paper is from the same or similar authors, and a reviewer could write a substantially similar summary of the paper compared with the original submission. As a rule of thumb, if there is more than 40% overlap between the original submission and the new paper, it will be considered a resubmission.
    All papers accepted by February 1st, 2019, or that are submitted as a revision by February 1st, 2019 and the revision is then accepted, will be included in the proceedings of the symposium in May, 2019 and invited to present their work. Other papers will be included in the 2020 proceedings.
        As a result, for authors who anticipate using the full three months to respond to a Revision decision, the final submission deadline for possible inclusion in the 2019 proceedings is September 1st, 2018.
        For authors who anticipate using only one month to respond to a Revision decision, the final submission deadline for possible inclusion in the 2019 proceedings is November 1st, 2018.
        The final submission deadline for possible inclusion in the 2019 proceedings is December 1st, 2018, but only for papers accepted without revision.

Revised Submissions

As described above, some number of papers will receive a Revise decision, rather than Accept or Reject. This decision will be accompanied by a detailed summary of the expectations for the revision, in addition to the standard reviewer comments. Authors may take up to three months to prepare a revision, which may include running additional experiments, improving the paper’s presentation, or other such improvements. Papers meeting the expectations will typically be accepted. Those that do not will be rejected. Only in exceptional circumstances will additional revisions be requested.

Upon receiving a Revise decision, authors can choose to withdraw their paper or not submit a revision within three months, but they will be asked to not submit the same or similar work again (following the same rules as for Rejected papers) for 1 year from the date of the original submission.

Revised submissions should be submitted on the first of the month, just as with new submissions. Revisions must be accompanied by a summary of the changes that were made.
