ACM CCS 2022 ACM CCS 2022, Los Angeles, CA, USA, November 7-11, 2022. [posted here 1/24/22]
The 29th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) seeks submissions presenting novel contributions related to all real-world aspects of computer security and privacy. Theoretical papers must make a convincing case for the relevance of their results to practice. Authors are encouraged to write the abstract and introduction of their paper in a way that makes the results accessible and compelling to a general computer-security researcher. In particular, authors should bear in mind that anyone on the program committee may be asked to review any paper.

WPES 2022 21st Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society, Held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2022, Los Angeles, CA, USA, November 7, 2022. [posted here 7/11/22]
The need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. This workshop discusses the problems of privacy in the global interconnected societies and possible solutions. The 2022 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the twenty-first in a yearly forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's electronic society. The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of electronic privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law and business that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues.

ASHES 2022 6th Workshop on Attacks and Solutions in Hardware Security, Held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2022, Los Angeles, CA, USA, November 11, 2022. [posted here 6/27/22]
ASHES deals with any aspects of hardware security, and welcomes any contributions in this area, including practical, implementation-related, or theoretical works. Among others, ASHES particularly highlights emerging methods and application areas. This includes new attack vectors, novel designs and materials, lightweight security primitives, nanotechnology, and PUFs on the methodological side, as well as the internet of things, automotive security, smart homes, pervasive and wearable computing on the applications side. Please see our call for papers for further details. In order to meet the requirements of its rapidly developing area, ASHES hosts four categories of papers: Classical full and short papers, as well as systematization of knowledge papers (which overview, structure, and/or categorize a certain subarea), and wild and crazy papers (whose purpose is rapid dissemination of promising, potentially game-changing new ideas without full demonstration). All accepted ASHES papers are invited for extended versions at a special, annually appearing ASHES issue at Springer’s Journal of Cryptographic Engineering (JCEN). Again, our call for papers has all the specifics.

GNNet 2022 1st Graph Neural Networking Workshop, Co-located with ACM CoNEXT 2022, Rome, Italy, December 9, 2022. [posted here 9/26/22]
While AI/ML is today mainstream in domains such as computer vision and speech recognition, traditional AI/ML approaches have produced below-par results in many networking applications. Proposed AI/ML solutions in networking do not properly generalize, can be unreliable and ineffective in real-network deployments, and are in general unable to properly deal with the strong dynamics and changes (i.e., concept drift) occurring in networking applications.

Graphs are emerging as an abstraction to represent complex data. Computer Networks are fundamentally graphs, and many of their relevant characteristics – such as topology and routing – are represented as graph-structured data. Machine learning, especially deep representation learning, on graphs is an emerging field with a wide array of applications. Within this field, Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) have been recently proposed to model and learn over graph-structured data. Due to their unique ability to generalize over graph data, GNNs are a central tool to apply AI/ML techniques to networking applications.

The goal of GNNet is to leverage graph data representations and modern GNN technology to advance the application of AI/ML in networking. GNNet provides the first dedicated venue to present and discuss the latest advancements on GNNs and general AI/ML on graphs applied to networking problems. GNNet will bring together leaders from academia and industry to showcase recent methodological advances of GNNs and their application to networking problems, covering a wide range of applications and practical challenges for large-scale training and deployment.

Euro S&P 2023 8th IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy, Delft, Netherlands, July 3-7, 2023. [posted here 11/7/22]
The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (Euro S&P) is the younger, more adventurous, and tastier sibling conference of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (“Oakland” or “NorCal S&P”) conference. It is a premier forum for computer security and privacy research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in security or privacy, as well as Systematization of Knowledge papers that systematize previous results. EuroS&P is interested in all aspects of applied computer security and privacy. We especially encourage papers that are far-reaching and risky, provided those papers show sufficient promise for creating interesting discussions and usefully questioning widely-held beliefs. Papers without a clear connection to security or privacy will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.
