CCS 2008
15th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security
Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, Alexandria, VA, USA
October 27-31, 2008

The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and
industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical
aspects of computer and communications security, as well as case
studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have relevance
to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure
systems. Theoretical papers must make a convincing argument for the
practical significance of the results. All topics related to computer
and communications security are of interest. Authors interested in
submitting but unsure if their topic is in scope should assume that it
probably is in scope but should contact the program chairs if further
guidance is desired.

Paper Submission Process.

Submissions must be made to the submission web site, by the deadline of April 14
2008. Submitted papers may not substantially overlap papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee
that their papers will be presented at the conference. 

Paper Format.

Submissions must be at most ten pages in double-column ACM format
(note: pages must be numbered), excluding the bibliography and
well-marked appendices and at most 12 pages overall. Committee members
are not required to read appendices, so the paper should be
intelligible without them. All submissions must be anonymized (an
author's name should only occur in references to that author's related
work, which should be referenced in the third person and not overtly
distinguishable from the referenced work of others). Only pdf or
postscript files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.


Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in a conference
proceedings. Outstanding papers will be invited for possible
publication in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Information
and System Security. Final proceedings versions will be 10 pages in
double-column ACM format; although authors will have the option of
buying a limited number of additional pages.  Important Dates.
