Papers, up to 6 pages, excluding references and well-marked appendices. These must be well-argued and worthy of publication and citation, on the topics above. Research papers must present new work, evidence, or ideas. Position papers with exceptional visions will also be considered. Authors of accepted papers will present their work at the conference (e.g., in a 30-minute slot) and their papers will appear in the conference’s formal IEEE proceedings.To improve the fairness of the reviewing process, SecDev will follow a light-weight double-blind reviewing process. Submitted papers must (a) omit any reference to the authors’ names or the names of their institutions, and (b) reference the authors’ own related work in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized). Please see the double-blind FAQ for the answers to many common concerns about SecDev’s double-blind reviewing process. When in doubt, contact the program chairs.
At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must register for the conference and present the paper/tutorial.
We are devoted to seeking broad representation in the program and may take this into account when reviewing multiple submissions from the same authors.
