20th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2015)
Vienna, Austria -- September 23-25, 2015

ESORICS is the annual European research event in Computer Security. 
The Symposium started in 1990 and has been held in several European
countries, attracting a wide international audience from both the academic
and industrial communities.  Papers offering novel research contributions
in computer security are solicited for submission to the Symposium. 
The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research
and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of 
papers discussing industrial research and development.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- access control
- accountability
- ad hoc networks
- anonymity
- applied cryptography
- authentication
- biometrics
- database security
- data protection
- digital content protection
- digital forensic
- distributed systems security
- electronic payments
- embedded systems security
- inference control
- information hiding
- identity management
- information flow control
- integrity
- intrusion detection
- formal security methods
- language-based security
- network security
- phishing and spam prevention
- privacy
- risk analysis and management
- secure electronic voting
- security architectures
- security economics
- security metrics
- security models
- security and privacy in cloud scenarios
- security and privacy in complex systems
- security and privacy in location services
- security and privacy for mobile code
- security and privacy in pervasive/ubiquitous computing
- security and privacy policies
- security and privacy in social networks
- security and privacy in web services
- security verification
- software security
- steganography
- systems security
- trust models and management
- trustworthy user devices
- web security
- wireless security

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 at 
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.

Paper submission due: April 4, 2015
Notification to authors: June 15, 2015
Camera ready due: June 29, 2015
