Security Standardisation Research (SSR) 2018
26-27 November 2018, Darmstadt, Germany
submissions due: 22nd June 2018


Call For Papers

Papers offering research contributions to the area of security 
standardisation are solicited for submission to the SSR 2018 conference. 
Papers may present theory, applications or practical experience in the 
field of security standardisation, including, but not necessarily 
limited to:

- access control
- biometrics
- cloud computing
- critical national infrastructure (CNI) protection
- consistency and comparison of multiple standards
- critiques of standards
- cryptanalysis
- cryptographic protocols
- cryptographic techniques
- evaluation criteria
- formal analysis of standards
- history of standardization
- identity management
- industrial control systems security
- internet security
- interoperability of standards
- intrusion detection
- key management and PKIs
- management of the standardisation process
- mobile security
- network security
- open standards and open source
- payment system security
- privacy
- regional and international standards
- RFID tag security
- risk analysis
- security controls
- security management
- security protocols
- security services
- security tokens
- smart cards
- telecommunications security
- trusted computing
- web security

New this year is that SSR will also accept Systematisation of Knowledge 
(SoK) papers relating to security standardisation, which integrate 
experience and previous research, drawing new comprehensive conclusions. 
SoK papers should evaluate, systematise, and contextualise existing 
knowledge. They should provide a new viewpoint, offer a comprehensive 
taxonomy, or cast doubt on long-held beliefs, based on compelling 
evidence. We also welcome SoK papers that document existing 
standardisation practices and analyse their weaknesses and strengths.

Instructions for Authors:
Submissions must be original and must not substantially duplicate work 
that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in 
parallel to any journal or to any other conference or workshop that has 
published proceedings.

Authors submitting a systematisation of knowledge paper should have a 
title consisting of “SoK: Title”. This is to ensure that the committee 
is made aware that the paper is an SoK paper, and so will be reviewed 
with different criteria.

Submitted papers must be in PDF format and written in English. The 
submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or 
obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and 
an introduction. Papers should be at most 16 pages (excluding 
bibliography and appendices) in the standard LNCS format (see 
instructions at 
Reviewers are not obliged to read appendices, so the paper must be 
self-contained without them.

Papers that do not adhere to these requirements will be rejected without 
consideration of their merits.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in 
Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one 
author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.

Submission Site:
Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair system. The link will be 
provided on the conference website when the system is open for
