CALL FOR PAPERS May 9-12, 2004 The Claremont Resort Berkeley/Oakland, California, USA 2004 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy in cooperation with The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) Symposium Committee: General Chair: Lee Badger (DARPA) Vice Chair: Steve Tate (University of North Texas) Program Co-Chairs: David A. Wagner (University of California at Berkeley, USA) Michael Waidner (IBM Zurich Research Lab, Switzerland) http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~daw/oakland04-cfp.html Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of computer security or electronic privacy are solicited for submission to the 2004 symposium. Papers may represent advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, or empirical evaluation of secure systems, either for general use or for specific application domains. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: Commercial and Industrial Security Mobile Code and Agent Security Network Security Data Integrity Information Flow Viruses and Other Malicious Code Authentication Secure Hardware and Smartcards Intrusion Detection Language-Based Security Security of Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks Electronic Privacy Distributed Systems Security Anonymity and Pseudonymity Access Control and Audit Security Verification Security Protocols Biometrics Peer-to-Peer Security Database Security Denial of Service Program Committee: Tuomas Aura, Microsoft Research, UK David Basin, ETH Zversity of Maryland, USA Josh Benaloh, Microsoft Research, USA Marc Dacier, Eurecom, France Herve' Debar, France Tlcom R&D, France Cedric Fournet, Microsoft Research, UK Virgil Gligor, University of Maryland, USA Trent Jaeger, IBM Research, USA Richard Kemmerer, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA Markus Kuhn, University of Cambridge, UK Heiko Mantel, DFKI, Germany John McHugh, CERT, USA John McLean, Naval Research Laboratory, USA Catherine Meadows, Naval Research Laboratory, USA John Mitchell, Stanford University, USA Andrew Myers, Cornell University, USA Vern Paxson, ICSI and LBNL, USA Birgit Pfitzmann, IBM Research, Switzerland Bart Preneel, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium Michael Reiter, Carnegie Mellon University, USA Avi Rubin, Johns Hopkins University, USA Pierangela Samarati, Universita' degli Studi di Milano, Italy Christoph Schuba, Sun Microsystems, USA Jonathan Shapiro, Johns Hopkins University, USA Michael Steiner, IBM Research, USA Paul Syverson, Naval Research Laboratory, USA Jonathan Trostle, Security Research Consultant, USA Gene Tsudik, University of California, Irvine, USA David Wagner, University of California, Berkeley, USA Michael Waidner, IBM Research, Switzerland Dan S. Wallach, Rice University, USA Andreas Wespi, IBM Research, Switzerland Avishai Wool, Tel Aviv University, Israel INSTRUCTIONS FOR 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. If there are any doubts on whether a paper counts as already published or not then the authors should contact the program chairs prior to submission. Papers should be in Portable Document Format (.pdf), at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font, single column format, and reasonable margins on 8.5"x11" or A4 paper), and at most 25 pages total. We request the submissions be in US letter paper size (not A4) if at all possible. Authors are urged to follow the NSF "Fastlane" guidelines for document preparation (http://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/a1/pdfcreat.htm), and to pay special attention to unusual fonts. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Papers should be submitted in a form suitable for anonymous review: remove author names and affiliations from the title page, and avoid explicit self-referencing in the text. Formatting and length requirements for the proceedings will be announced after acceptance notification. Please submit papers via the Web; the submission address will be published 4 weeks before the deadline. All deadlines are in CET (Central European Time), which is GMT+1, i.e., in Zurich local time. For any questions, please contact the program chairs, at email@example.com. Paper submissions due: November 5, 2003, 18:00:00 CET (GMT+1) Acceptance notification: January 21, 2004 Final papers due: February 23, 2004 Submissions received after the submission deadline or failing to conform to the guidelines above risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate clearances; authors of accepted papers will be asked to sign IEEE copyright release forms. Where possible all further communications to authors will be via email. PANEL PROPOSALS The conference may include panel sessions addressing topics of interest to the computer security community. Proposals for panels should be no longer than five pages in length and should include possible panelists and an indication of which of those panelists have confirmed participation. Please submit panel proposals by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Panel proposals due: November 5, 2003, 18:00:00 CET (GMT+1) Acceptance notification: January 27, 2004 Where possible all further communications to authors will be via email. 5-MINUTE TALKS A continuing feature of the symposium will be a session of 5-minute talks, where attendees can present preliminary research results or summaries of works published elsewhere. Poster presentations related to these talks are also possible. Abstracts for 5-minute talks should fit on one 8.5"x11" or A4 page, including the title and all author names and affiliations. Please submit abstracts by email to email@example.com. 5-minute abstracts due: March 15, 2004, 18:00:00 CET (GMT+1) Acceptance notification: March 31, 2004 Where possible all further communications to authors will be via email.
