39th IEEE Symposium on
Security and Privacy

Call for Posters

The 2018 Symposium marks the 39th 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Posters are solicited that present unpublished in-progress or late-breaking research on security and privacy related topics.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.

Poster abstracts are due Friday, April 20, 2018. At least one author of each accepted poster will be required to attend the conference to present the poster, and each author should present at most one poster. There will be no exceptions to this policy. Accepted poster abstracts will be posted on the conference website.
