Conference website:

The ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) is
the flagship annual conference of the Special Interest Group on
Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) of the Association for Computing
Machinery (ACM). The conference brings together information security
researchers, practitioners, developers, and users from all over the
world to explore cutting-edge ideas and results. It provides an
environment to conduct intellectual discussions. From its inception,
CCS has established itself as a high standard research conference in
its area.

The 22nd ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security will
be held in the city of Denver, Colorado from October 12, 2015 to
October 16, 2015. Known as the Mile-High City, Denver is the 3rd
"greenest" city, and one of the top 10 safest large cities in the
U.S. The nearby Rocky Mountains offer a wealth of opportunities for
outdoor adventures, including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing,
white water rafting and, during winter, skiing and snow shoeing. The
conference venue is easily accessible from I-25, and a short 30 minute
ride from the Denver International Airport (DEN), which offers
non-stop flights to most major cities in the U.S. as well as to major
cities in Europe and worldwide.

Paper Submission Information

The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and
industry presenting novel research results in all practical and
theoretical aspects of computer and communications security. Papers
should be related to the construction, evaluation, application, or
operation of secure systems. Theoretical papers must make a convincing
argument for the relevance of the results to secure systems. All topic
areas related to computer and communications security are of interest
and in scope. ACM Press will publish accepted papers in the conference

Paper Submission Process

Submissions must be made online by the deadline of Friday, May 15,
2015 23:59 (UTC - 11) through the conference management system link

carried out in two phases and authors will have an opportunity to
comment on the first-phase reviews.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,
conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is
not allowed. Note that submitted papers cannot be withdrawn from the
process after the first phase reviews are received by authors. Authors
of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented
at the conference.

Paper Format

Submissions must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format
( proceedings-templates)
excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 12
pages overall. Submissions must be anonymized and avoid obvious
