Call for Papers

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of access
control are solicited for submission to the 19th ACM Symposium on
Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2014, Accepted papers will be presented at the
symposium and published by the ACM in the symposium proceedings.  
June 25-27, 2014
London, Ontario, Canada

*New for 2014*
We have expanded the scope to include several new topics that have relevance to access control. These include cyber-physical systems, applications, systems, hardware, cloud computing, and usability. The Program Committee for this year reflects this expanded scope.

Paper Submission and FormatPapers are to be submitted electronically
using the EasyChair conference management system
( Papers must
be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" X 11" paper, and
be no more than 5MB in size. It is the responsibility of the authors
to ensure that their submission will print easily on simple default

Papers must be written in English. Authors are required to use the ACM
format for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates
( The length of
the paper (in the proceedings format) must not exceed ten US letter
pages, excluding well-marked appendices, and no more than twelve pages
in total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices,
so papers must be intelligible without them.

The submission must be anonymous, so information that might identify
the authors - including author names, affiliations, acknowledgements,
or obvious self-citations - must be excluded. It is the authors'
responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is preserved when citing
their own work.

All submissions must contain a significant original contribution. That
is, submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,
conference or workshop. In particular, simultaneous submission of the
same work is not allowed. Where appropriate, relevant related work,
including that of the authors, must be cited.

Panel Proposal Submission
Panel proposals should be no longer than two pages, and should
identify potential panelists, indicating those who have confirmed
their willingness to participate. We especially solicit panels with
participants from industry and/or government. Proposals can be
e-mailed to the Panels Chairs, Florian Kerschbaum
( and Lujo Bauer (

System Demonstration Submission

Since 2011, SACMAT has included system demonstration sessions during
the symposium.  To be considered for presentation, authors should
submit a *four-page* demonstration proposal prepared according to the
formatting guidelines described above for regular papers. However,
demonstration proposals are *not* subject to double-blind review,
hence author name(s) and affiliation(s) should be included in the
submission. Demonstration proposals will be included in the final
proceedings.  Demonstration proposals should clearly describe (1) the
overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated, and (2)
one or more demonstration scenarios that describe how the audience,
interacting with the demonstration system or the demonstrator, will
gain an understanding of the underlying technology. Submissions will
be evaluated based on the motivation of the work behind the use of the
system or technology to be demonstrated and its novelty.

Authors can submit their four-page proposals via EasyChair
(  Questions
about the system demonstration session or demonstration proposals can
be emailed to the demonstrations chair, Adam J. Lee
