18th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2013)
RHUL, Egham, U.K. -- September 9-11, 2013

ESORICS (European Symposium on Research in Computer Security) is the 
premier European research conference in computer security. ESORICS started 
in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting an 
international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. 
ESORICS 2013, the 18th symposium in the series, will be held in the UK at 
Royal Holloway, University of London.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of computer 
security are solicited for submission to ESORICS 2013. The primary focus 
is on original, high quality, unpublished research, but submissions 
describing implementation experiences and industrial research and 
development are also encouraged. All topics related to security, 
privacy and trust in computer systems and networks are of interest and 
in scope. Papers on applications of cryptography to topics in the scope of 
the conference are welcome, but papers on theoretical cryptography must 
be explicit about the relevance of the theory to the security of computer 
systems and networks.

For the first time at ESORICS, there will be awards for outstanding paper 
and outstanding student paper. A student paper is defined to be one in which 
at least one of the authors is a student who does not have a PhD at the time 
of submission. To be considered for the student paper award, the paper must 
be accompanied by a cover letter signed by all co-authors explicitly attesting 
to the central role and contributions of the student(s), and the paper must be 
presented by the student at ESORICS 2013. The cover letter should be in pdf 
format and uploaded at the same time as the paper.
