Call for Paper ESORICS 2009

Call for papers

Papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of computer security are solicited for submission to the Fourteenth European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2009). Organized in a series of European countries, ESORICS is confirmed as the leading European research event in computer security. The symposium started in 1990 and has been held on alternate years in different European countries and attracts an international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. From 2002 it has been held yearly. The Symposium has established itself as one of the premiere, international gatherings on Information Assurance.


Papers may present theory, technique, applications, or practical experience on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Access conrol
  • Anonymity
  • Application-level security
  • Attacks and defenses
  • Authentication
  • Distributed systems security
  • Embedded system security
  • Forensics
  • Hardware-based security
  • Information flow
  • Intrusion detection
  • Malicious code
  • Language-based security
  • Network security
  • Physical security
  • Privacy-preserving systems
  • Recovery
  • Secure protocols

The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case studies and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers discussing industrial research and development. Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Paper Submission

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable margins), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Papers must be submitted using the conference web site and following the requirements stated there. Authors of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Additionally, they must follow the Springer Information for Authors’ guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript and use the templates provided there.
