Proposal submission: 
--------------------

Papers should include the title, author's name(s), affiliation,
mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author. All
papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the reviewers
judging their originality, significance, correctness, presentation and
relevance.  Acceptance and final category depend on reviewer feedback.
All accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in the conference
proceedings and placed into the ACM Digital Library. Extended versions
of selected papers will be invited for possible publication in a
special issue of an international journal (TBA).  The submitted papers
should be written according to double-column ACM conference format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).  All
papers, special session, tutorial, and workshop proposals must be
submitted electronically via the SIN 2013 Submission Site
(https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIN2013/).

Paper categories:
-----------------

 o Research contributions - Submissions must not substantially
   duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or
   has submitted simultaneously to any other conference or workshop
   that has published proceedings.  Maximum length for the proceedings
   is 8 pages for full papers, 4 pages for short papers.

 o Student contributions - Doctoral / Masters Students are encouraged
   to propose papers on ongoing research.  Please add "(Student
   contribution)" to the title. Maximum length for the proceedings is
   4 pages for student papers.

 o Industrial contributions - Authors from industry and government
   enterprises are welcome to submit original papers that describe
   their experiences, challenges, and applications in
   security. Maximum length for the proceedings is 8 or 5 pages.

 o Position papers / fast abstracts - Authors are also encouraged to
   propose position papers / fast abstracts on practical studies and
   experiments, critiques of existing work, emerging issues, and novel
   ideas under development.  Maximum length for the proceedings is 2
   pages for fast abstracts and position statements.

 o Tool demos - Enterprises and research centers developing,
   implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged
   to propose application / tool demos. Maximum length for the
   proceedings is 4 pages for tool demos.
