31st IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy - Call For Papers 16-19 May 2010, The Claremont Resort, Oakland, CA Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee of Security and Privacy Important Dates (all deadlines are 23:59 PST) Workshop proposals due: Friday, 21 August 2009 Research papers due: Wednesday, 18 Nov 2009 Systematization of Knowledge papers due: Tuesday, 24 Nov 2009 Acceptance notification: 1 February 2010 Final papers due: 1 March 2010 Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for computer security research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of computer security or privacy. Papers may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation of secure systems. S&P is interested in all aspects of computer security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review. *Systematization of Knowledge Papers*. In addition to the standard research papers, we are also soliciting papers focused on systematization of knowledge. The goal of this call is to encourage work that evaluates, systematizes, and contextualizes existing knowledge. These papers will provide a high value to our community but would otherwise not be accepted because they lack novel research contributions. Suitable papers include survey papers that provide useful perspectives on major research areas, papers that support or challenge long-held beliefs with compelling evidence, or papers that provide an extensive and realistic evaluation of competing approaches to solving specific problems. Submissions will be distinguished by a checkbox on the submission form. They will be reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research contributions the emphasis will be on value to the community. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings. *Workshops*. The Symposium is also soliciting submissions for colocated workshops. Workshop proposals should be sent by Friday, 21 August 2009 by email to Carrie Gates (firstname.lastname@example.org). Workshops may be half-day or full-day in length. Submissions should include the workshop title, a short description of the topic of the workshop, and biographies of the organizers.
