Call for Posters

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 Posters are solicited that present unpublished in-progress or late-breaking research on security- and privacy-related topics. Additionally, posters presenting interdisciplinary work that is relevant to security and privacy research but was published outside the security community are welcome.

Poster abstracts are due Monday, April 1, 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 but not included in the conference proceedings.
