Call for Papers

About EuroSec

The 11th European Workshop on Systems Security (EuroSec) aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security of computer systems and networks. The objective of the workshop is to discuss novel, practical, systems-oriented work. The workshop will precede the EuroSys 2018 conference.

The Aim of EuroSec

EuroSec encourages systems security researchers to share early iterations of bleeding-edge ideas with the community, before they are further developed into full papers. Reciprocally, authors receive feedback to help steer and improve their research to its full potential. Many EuroSec papers later form the basis for full conference papers presented at one of the top venues in computer security.

Important dates

  • Paper submission deadline: February 2, 2018 (AoE) Extended to February 9, 2018 (AoE)
  • Acceptance notification: March 2, 2018
  • Final paper due: March 8, 2018
  • Workshop: April 23, 2018

Topics of Interest

EuroSec seeks contributions on all aspects of systems security. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • New attacks, evasion techniques, and defenses
  • Operating system security
  • Mobile systems security
  • Malicious code analysis and detection
  • Web security
  • Network security
  • Reverse engineering and binary analysis
  • Hardware security
  • Virtual machines and hypervisors
  • Trusted computing and its applications
  • System security aspects of privacy
  • Identity management and anonymity
  • Systems-based forensics
  • Automated techniques for vulnerability discovery, analysis, and exploitation
  • Embedded system security
  • Cybercrime ecosystem and economics (e.g., spam, phishing, clickfraud)
  • Security of critical infrastructures

In accordance with the spirit of EuroSys, we also seek:

  • Quantified or insightful experience with existing systems
  • Reproduction or refutation of previous results
  • Negative results and early ideas

Paper submissions

You are invited to submit papers of up to 6 pages, with 9-point font, in a two-column format, including figures, tables and references. Submitted papers must use the 2017 ACM sigconf proceedings template. You should not modify key aspects of the template, such as font face, spacing, etc. The template, as well as instructions on how to use it, can be found here.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Only original, novel work will be considered for publication. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of EuroSec in the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions should be made online at http://eurosec2018.sec.tu-bs.de.
