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.

In order to further expand the opportunities for scientific exchanges, this year we also encourage interested parties to organize workshops associated with the conference. 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 the specialized workshop and IEEE SP with just one trip. Furthermore, the co-location offers synergies for the organizers.


Workshop submissions should be sent to oakland07-pchairs@ieee-security.org.

Workshop submissions due: October 27, 2006.
Acceptance decision: November 17, 2006.

There will be some interaction in deciding upon and setting up a workshop, but the initial proposal should already contain as much as possible of the following information: A workshop associated with IEEE SP 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 brings some requirements. The SP organizing committee can help you with the following: meeting rooms at the conference hotel, collection of advance workshop registration fees, budgeting assistance, interaction with the IEEE, and linking to the workshop web pages from the main SP web pages. All the actual running of the workshop remains the responsibility of the workshop organizers. If you are interested, we will send you a more detailed list of the responsibilities, meeting room options, etc., and would hope to jointly set up a successful workshop.
