                   Hamburg, Germany, 18 - 20 September 2006


Call for Papers


Papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of computer
security are solicited for submission to the Eleventh European Symposium on
Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2006). Organized in a series of
European countries, ESORICS is confirmed as the European research event in
computer security.

The symposium started in 1990 and has been held for alternate years in
different European countries and attracts an international audience from
both the academic and industrial community. From 2002 it has been held on
yearly. The Symposium has established itself as one of the premiere
international gatherings on information assurance. Papers may present
theory, mechanisms, applications, or practical experience on the following

 * access control                           * intellectual property
 * accountability                           * intrusion tolerance
 * applied cryptography                     * language-based security
 * authentication                           * network security
 * covert channels                          * peer-to-peer security
 * cryptographic protocols                  * privacy-enhancing technology
 * cybercrime                               * secure electronic commerce
 * data and application security            * security as quality of service
 * denial of service attacks                * security evaluation
 * digital rights management                * security management
 * distributed trust management             * security models
 * formal methods in security               * security requirements
 * identity management                      * smartcards
 * inference control                        * subliminal channels
 * information assurance                    * system security
 * information dissemination controls       * trust models
 * information flow controls                * trustworthy user devices
 * information warfare


The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case
studies and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers
discussing industrial research and development. Proceedings will be
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the
bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font), and at most
20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices,
and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Authors are encouraged
to follow the Information for LNCS Authors provided by Springer when
preparing their submission.

The paper submission site
https://www.softconf.com/starts/ESORICS06/submit.html is open. Submissions
must be received by March 31, 2006 in order to be considered. Notification
of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by May 30, 2006. Authors
of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must
guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Authors of
accepted papers must follow the guidelines in the Information for LNCS
Authors for the preparation of the manuscript and use the templates provided
there. Papers included in the conference proceedings must be typeset in
