Submission guidelines

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings published in the IFIP AICT series by Springer Science and Business Media.

All papers must be written in English. Submissions should be at most 14 pages long in total including references and appendices. Submissions should not be anonymised. PC members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.

After the conference, extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the journal Computers & Security. Those papers will undergo at least one other review round.

The best student paper will receive the Yves Deswarte Best Student Paper Award. The paper must be original and carried out principally by the student presenting the paper, and the student must be the lead author. A student who is to be considered for the best paper award must be a full time (as determined by the student’s institution) registered undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral student at the time of submission of the paper.
