Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

All submissions should follow the LNCS template from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages (using 10-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English.

Purely theoretical papers, e.g. in cryptography, must be explicit about the relevance of the theory to the security of IT systems.

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site. Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of April 4, 2015. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.

Submissions are not anonymous.
