This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; S&P is interested in all aspects of computer security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.

Systematization of Knowledge Papers: As in past years, we solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge, as such papers can provide a high value to our community. Suitable papers are those that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or present a convincing, comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate and may be rejected without full review. Submissions will be distinguished by the prefix “SoK:” in the title and a checkbox on the submission form. They will be reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, but they will be accepted based on their treatment of existing work and value to the community, and not based on any new research results they may contain. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings. You can find an overview of recent SoK papers at https://oaklandsok.github.io/.

DASC 2024 22nd IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing, Boracay Island, Malay, Philippines, November 5-8, 2024. (Submission Due 15 June 2024) [posted here 4/1/24]
As computer and communication systems, and other systems such as Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), and Autonomous Robotic Systems, become increasingly large and complex, their Dependability and Security play critical roles in supporting next-generation science, engineering, and commercial applications. It remains a challenge to design, analyze, evaluate, and improve the dependability and security of a large-scale computing environment. Trusted and autonomic computing/autonomous systems need synergistic research efforts covering many disciplines, from natural sciences to social sciences. It requires scientific and technological advances in a variety of fields, as well as new software, architectures, and communication technology that support the integration of the constituent technologies. IEEE DASC 2024 aims to bring together computer scientists, industrial engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange theoretical and implementation results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the areas of dependability, security, trust, and/or autonomic computing, and autonomous systems.

HealthSec 2024 Workshop on Cybersecurity in Healthcare, Held in conjunction with the 31st ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS 2024), Salt Lake City, Utah USA, October 14, 2024. (Submission Due 23 June 2024) [posted here 5/6/24]
In its most basic form, healthcare is gathering data, interpreting data into information, and transforming information into current human knowledge that can be acted upon, with each of these stages open to unintended errors and/or malicious subversion. These stages do not occur within a vacuum but rather within our existing infrastructures and social system with all their current limitations, systemic bias, and exploitable vulnerabilities. While a similar characterization can be made about security in other applied domains, healthcare is undergoing a dramatic transformation, arguably the next technological revolution, presenting immediate opportunities for improvement along with corresponding challenges in security. ur desire is to bring together diverse researchers from academia, government, and the healthcare industry to report on latest research efforts. As this is the inaugural workshop focusing on cybersecurity in healthcare, we aim to encourage, jumpstart, and grow excellent interdisciplinary contributions at the forefront of research.
