41st IEEE Symposium on
Security and Privacy

Call for Posters

UPDATE: Now that S&P 2020 will be a virtual conference, we wanted to update you on how posters will be handled. For accepted poster, the author(s) will pre-record a short video (probably around 2 minutes; details to be finalized) explaining the poster and its content. These videos will be archived. During the one-hour virtual poster session, each poster will be assigned a separate video breakout room. The author(s) will use that room to interact with poster “visitors,” who stop by to hear about the work and view the poster via screenshare or attachment. Attendees will be able to move between breakout rooms as needed to visit with multiple posters. At least one author of each accepted poster should plan to remain in the breakout room for the entire one-hour virtual session. That means that, for example, if one research group submits two posters, then at least two people must be available to host the breakouts, one per poster. All information below not related to physical attendance remains correct.

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 Posters are solicited that present unpublished in-progress or late-breaking research on security- and privacy-related topics.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 6, 2020. 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.
