Call for Papers

The program committee solicits previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of security in computing and communications. Papers without a clear application to security, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review. Simultaneous submission of the same paper to another venue with proceedings or a journal is not allowed and will be grounds for automatic rejection.

  • Anti-Forensics Techniques
  • Application Security
  • Authentication and Access Control Systems

The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in Communications in Computer and Information Science Series(CCIS), ISSN: 1865:0929. The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library. Thw volumes of this series are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services including DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, and Scopus.

Authors publishing in CCIS have to sign the Springer CCIS copyright transfer form, however, they are free to use their material published in CCIS for substantially changed, more elaborate subsequent publications elsewhere. For the preparation of the camera-ready papers/files, authors have to strictly adhere to the Springer CCIS Authors' Instructions.
