35th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy


Call For Posters

The 2014 Symposium marks the 35th annual meeting of this flagship conference. Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field.

Posters are solicited that present recent and late-breaking research on security and privacy related topics. Presenting a poster at the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy is a great chance for researchers to obtain valuable feedback on their ongoing work from knowledgeable participants at the conference. Accepted poster abstracts will be posted on the conference website.

Posters from students on new and exciting problems are especially encouraged. There is limited travel support available for students attending the conference. Please note that getting a poster accepted does not guarantee travel support. See for details.

At least one author of each accepted poster will be required to register for the conference to present the poster. This should be the most valuable part of participation, as authors will be able to engage conference attendees in extended conversations about their ongoing work!
