SPW 2017 Security and Privacy Workshops, 
Held in conjunction with the 38th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy 
  (SP 2017), 
San Jose, CA, USA, 
May 25, 2016.

Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP) has been the
premier forum for the presentation of developments in computer security and
electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners
in the field. To expand opportunities for scientific exchanges, the IEEE CS
Technical Committee on Security and Privacy created the Security and
Privacy Workshops (SPW). The typical purpose of such a workshop is to cover
a specific aspect of security and privacy in more detail, making it easy
for the participants to attend IEEE SP and a specialized workshop at SPW
with just one trip. Furthermore, the co-location offers synergies for the
organizers. The number of workshops and attendees has grown steadily during
recent years. Workshops can be annual events, one time events, or
aperiodic. The Security and Privacy Workshops in 2017 will be held on
Thursday, May 25. All workshops will occur on that day. Up to six workshops
will be hosted by SPW.

The 2017 Security and Privacy Workshops will be held on Thursday, May
25, 2017. All workshops will occur on that day. Up to six workshops
will be hosted by SPW.

Proposal Requirements

There will be some interaction in deciding upon and setting up a
workshop, but the initial proposal should already contain a
considerable amount of information. A workshop proposal template is
available online at the IEEE S&P "Call for Workshops" website (
http://www.ieee-security.org/TC/SP2017/cfworkshops.html), providing
instructions and a more detailed description of information to include
in proposals:

    Workshop organizers
    Workshop length
    Technical proposal
    Topics to be addressed
    Importance of these topics
    Preliminary call for papers/posters/contributions
    Preliminary program committee
    Proposed review process
    Expected number of participants
    Publication policy
    Workshop planning schedule
    Publicity plan
    Special meeting logistics requirements

Support to Workshop Organizers

All workshops associated with the IEEE Symposium on Security and
Privacy will be under the financial and legal responsibility of the
IEEE Computer Society. This has great advantages for organizers, e.g.,
with respect to risk coverage and insurance, but also entails some
responsibilities and constraints. The SPW organizers can help you with
the following: meeting rooms at the conference hotel, meeting
logistics (A/V, meals, etc.), registration, awards production,
publishing proceedings with IEEE conference publication services (via
IEEE Xplore) and workshop publicity complimentary with IEEE S&P
publicity efforts. Workshops will be advertised through, and workshop
websites can be hosted at, ieee-security.org. The SPW committee will
also help with publicity via a free ad in Security and Privacy
Magazine and a banner ad on computer.org, email lists of past
attendees (those with opt-in), and notifications to press
organizations.  Responsibilities of Workshop Organizers

Workshop organizers have responsibility for maintaining their workshop
website; publicity for their workshop; soliciting, reviewing, and
accepting papers; constructing the final program; and all interactions
with authors, speakers, etc. Reviewing should be done in accordance
with IEEE guidelines (3 reviews per paper, avoid COI, program chair
must review all comments before they are sent back to authors, etc.)
If you are interested, we will send you a more detailed list of the
responsibilities, meeting room configuration options, template
schedule for sessions, etc., and would hope to jointly set up a
successful workshop.  Workshop Evaluation Criteria

The purpose of SPW is to complement IEEE S&P and provide an
environment conducive to new ideas and discussion. The criteria for
evaluation are intended assess workshop proposals in this context by
considering the following:

    Organizational details: Is the workshop CFP clear, sensible, and thorough?
    Suitability for SPW by topic
    Suitability for IEEE S&P attendees: Would a conference attendee
      want to attend the workshop?
    Technical merit
    Conflict or overlap with existing workshops, both those hosted
      with SPW and others in the community
    Likelihood of workshop success
    Preliminary call for participation: Is it clear about the
      workshop's purpose?
    Proposal quality
    Anticipated attendance: Workshops should have between 30 and 50 attendees
    Organizing committee: One or more of the organizers should have
      experience in organizing successful technical events
