Full, short, and opinion papers

All papers for WiSec 2018 must be submitted electronically through the HotCRP conference management system.

Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions must fit properly on US “Letter”-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches) and must be prepared using the following ACM proceedings template. A minimal template for WiSec 2019, can also be downloaded from here. For more information and alternative formats (e.g., word), please refer to ACM proceeding templates.

Full paper submissions must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format (note: pages must be numbered), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices and at most 12 pages overall. Committee members are not required to read appendices, so papers should be intelligible without them. Short paper submissions must be at most 6 pages overall formatted in the same way as full papers. Opinion paper submissions must be at most 3 pages (excluding references) overall formatted in the same way as full papers.

All submitted papers will be evaluated through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers until all reviews have been completed. Therefore, an author’s name should only occur in references to that author’s related work, which should be referenced in the third person and not overtly distinguishable from the referenced work of others. Author names for all papers will be revealed to reviewers after completion of the review process, to discourage abuse of the system.

Registration requirement: All accepted papers should be presented at the conference. Therefore, at least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference at full (non-student) rate by the early date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper. If none of the authors of an accepted paper is registered by the indicated deadline, or the paper is not presented in the conference, it will be withdrawn from the conference proceedings. All conference proceedings will be published by ACM.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.

Submissions not meeting all of the above guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Please direct any questions about the paper submission process to the Program Chair.
