Topics

New theoretical results in computer security are welcome. Also welcome
are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and
raise fundamental concerns about existing theories. Panel proposals are
sought as well as papers. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Access control		Distributed systems 	Language-based security
			security

Anonymity and		Electronic voting	Network security
Privacy   	

Authentication		Executable content	Resource usage control

Data and system		Formal methods		Security for mobile
integrity 		for security		computing
	
Database security	Information flow	Security models

Data provenance		Intrusion detection	Security protocols

Decidability and	Hardware-based 		Trust and trust
complexity		security		management
	
While CSF welcomes submissions beyond these topics, note that the main
focus of CSF is foundational security: submissions that lack
foundational aspects risk rejection.


Proceedings

Proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, will be
available at the symposium, and selected papers will be invited for
submission to the Journal of Computer Security.

Paper Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with published proceedings. Failure to clearly identify any
duplication or overlap with other published or submitted papers is
ground for rejection without full review.

Papers should be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers
submitted in a proprietary word processor format such as Microsoft Word
cannot be considered. At least one coauthor of each accepted paper is
required to attend CSF to present the paper.

Papers may be submitted using the two-column IEEE Proceedings style
available for various document preparation systems at IEEE-CS Press.
Papers should be at most 12 pages long, not counting bibliography and
well-marked appendices.

Committee members are not required to read appendices, and so the paper
must be intelligible without them. Papers not adhering to the page
limits will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Submit papers using the CSF 2011 submission site (online soon).

Panel Proposals

Proposals for panels are welcome. They should be no more than three
pages in length, and should include the names of possible panelists and
an indication of which of those panelists have confirmed a desire to
participate. They should be submitted by email to the program chair.

Five-minute Talks

CSF's popular tradition of a session of 5-minute talks will continue
this year. To offer a 5-minute talk, send a 1-page text abstract
tocsf11-chairs@infsec.cs.uni-saarland.de by June 20, 2011. Short talks
may be trailers for longer presentations at one of the affiliated
workshops, or stand entirely on their own. Abstracts will be made
available electronically but not published in the conference
proceedings. Provocative and programmatic presentations are welcome!
Note that speakers in this session must be registered for CSF.
