Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP) has been the premier forum for the presentation of developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field.

In order to further expand the opportunities for scientific exchanges, we created a new venue within the IEEE CS Technical Committee on Security and Privacy called Security and Privacy Workshops (SPW). The typical purpose of such a workshop is to cover a specific aspect of security and privacy in more detail, making it easy for the participants to attend IEEE SP and a specialized workshop at IEEE SPW with just one trip. Furthermore, the co-location offers synergies for the organizers. Historically, we have had some workshops (e.g. W2SP, SADFE) co-located with IEEE SP the last few years; the success and popularity of these workshops has led to us formalizing the process and expanding our scope.
