PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format,
including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee
members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper
should be intelligible without them. Submissions are to be made to
the submission web site at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dbsec2015 .
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 February 21, 2015 (11:59 PM American Samoa time).
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will
be presented at the conference. Accepted papers will be published
by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
The final version of the accepted papers must be in the format
required of publications in the LNCS series (a Latex source file
will be required).
A paper submitted to DBSec 2015 cannot be under review for any other
conference or journal during the time it is being considered for
DBSec 2015. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2015,
you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you
submit your paper to another conference or journal either
before/after submission of the paper to DBSec 2015, we will reject
your paper without review and will notify the other
conference/journal as well. This restriction applies to identical
as well as to substantially similar papers.
