Submission guidelines

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings published in the IFIP AICT series by Springer Science and Business Media. Previous IFIP SEC proceedings are available here.

All papers must be written in English. Submissions should be at most 16 pages long in total including references and appendices. Submissions should not be anonymised. PC members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Authors must follow the Springer LNCS formatting instructions. Papers have to be submitted via the Easychair conference system.

Each paper will receive at least three reviews. At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the early registration date indicated on the conference website and present the paper. For each accepted paper, at least one full registration is necessary. After the conference, extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in journal special issue. Those papers will undergo at least one other review round.
