37th IEEE Symposium on
Security and Privacy


Call For Posters

The 2016 Symposium marks the 37th annual meeting of this flagship conference. Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. Presenting a poster at IEEE S&P is a great chance for researchers to obtain valuable feedback on their ongoing work from knowledgeable participants at the conference.

Posters are solicited that present unpublished in-progress or late-breaking research on security and privacy related topics. Abstracts should briefly describe the particular problem being addressed, and detail your approach to the problem. Providing preliminary results is suggested but not required.

Posters from students are especially encouraged. There is limited travel support available for students attending the conference. Student travel applications are due before poster submissions, and poster acceptance does not guarantee travel support. See for details.

Poster abstracts are due Friday, April 8, 2016. At least one author of each accepted poster will be required to register by Friday, May 13, 2016 and attend the conference on Monday, May 23, 2016 to present the poster. Accepted poster abstracts will be posted on the conference website.
