=== SCOPE ===

The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P) has been
founded as the European sister conference of the established IEEE
Symposium on Security and Privacy (S&P), and, therefore, as a premier
forum for computer security research, presenting the latest
developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We
solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research
contributions in any aspect of security or privacy. Papers may present
advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis,
verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of secure

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; Euro S&P is interested
in all aspects of computer security and privacy. Papers without a
clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered
out of scope, and may be rejected without full review.

=== SoK PAPERS ===

We also solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that
evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge, as such
papers can provide a high value to our community. Suitable papers are
those that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major
research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area
with compelling evidence, or present a convincing, comprehensive new
taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not
appropriate. Submissions will be distinguished by the prefix "SoK:"
in the title and a checkbox on the submission form. They will be
reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional
research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research
contributions the emphasis will be on value to the community. Accepted
papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the

=== BEST PAPER ===

Outstanding paper(s) will be selected by the program committee for the
best paper award. The award will be announced at the symposium.
