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. 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.

The Symposium is also soliciting submissions for co-located workshops. Further details on submissions can be found at

Ongoing Submissions
To enhance the quality and timeliness of the scientific results presented as part of the Symposium, and to improve the quality of our reviewing process, IEEE S&P now accepts paper submissions 12 times a year, on the first of each month. The detailed process can be found at the conference call-for-papers page.

BioSTAR 2018 3rd International Workshop on Bio-inspired Security, Trust, Assurance and Resilience, Co-located with 39th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (IEEE S&P 2018), San Francisco, CA, USA, May 24, 2018. (Submission Due 15 January 2018) [posted here 10/23/17]
As computing and communication systems continue to expand and offer new services, these advancements require more dynamic, diverse, and interconnected computing infrastructures. Unfortunately, defending and maintaining resilient and trustworthy operation of these complex systems are increasingly difficult challenges. Conventional approaches to Security, Trust, Assurance and Resilience (STAR for short) are often too narrowly focused and cannot easily scale to manage large, coordinated and persistent attacks in these environments. Designs found in nature are increasingly used as a source of inspiration for STAR and related networking and intelligence solutions for complex computing and communication environments. Nature's footprint is present in the world of Information Technology, where there are an astounding number of computational bio-inspired techniques. These well-regarded approaches include genetic algorithms, neural networks, ant algorithms, immune systems just to name a few. For example several networking management and security technologies have successfully adopted some of nature's approaches, such as swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, sensor networks, moving target defense, diversity-based software design, etc. Nature has also developed an outstanding ability to recognize individuals or foreign objects and adapt/evolve to protect a group or a single organism. Solutions that incorporate these nature-inspired characteristics often have improved performance and/or provided new capabilities beyond more traditional methods. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by the researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of nature-inspired STAR aspects in computing and communications. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Nature-inspired anomaly and intrusion detection
- Adaptation algorithms
- Biometrics
- Nature-inspired algorithms and technologies for STAR
- Biomimetics
- Artificial Immune Systems
- Adaptive and Evolvable Systems
- Machine Learning, neural networks, genetic algorithms for STAR
- Nature-inspired analytics and prediction
- Cognitive systems
- Sensor and actuator networks and systems
- Information hiding solutions (steganography, watermarking) for network traffic
- Cooperative defense systems
- Cloud-supported nature-inspired STAR
- Theoretical development in heuristics
- Management of decentralized networks
- Nature-inspired algorithms for dependable networks
- Platforms for STAR services
- Diversity in computing and communications
- Survivable and sustainable systems
- STAR management systems
- Autonomic cyber defenses

ESSoS 2018 International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems, Campus Paris-Saclay, France, June 26-27, 2018. (Submission Due 9 March 2018) [posted here 12/11/17]
Software-based systems permeate the very fabric of our society from enterprise IT systems and mobile devices to smart home and city environments. Consequently, computer security is becoming an increasingly inter-disciplinary subject requiring attention to the various aspects of securing our software-based infrastructure. One must pay careful attention to ensure compatibility with existing software and the wider socio-technical context (e.g., users and organisations) which it inhabits. This, in turn, requires an approach that integrates insights from computer security research with rigorous software engineering methods to ensure the security and resilience of our digital infrastructure. ESSoS therefore welcomes contributions that are at the border of system security and software engineering. The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to bridge the software engineering and software security communities. The symposium features two days of technical program including two keynote presentations. In addition to academic papers, the symposium encourages submission of high-quality, informative industrial experience papers about successes and failures in secure software engineering and the lessons learned. Furthermore, the symposium also accepts short idea papers that crisply describe a promising direction, approach, or insight.
