38th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy

  • Fairmont Hotel 170 South Market Street San Jose, CA, 95113 United States (map)

Since 1980 in Oakland, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for computer security research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of security or privacy. Papers may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of secure systems.

Topics of interest include:

  • Access control and authorization
  • Accountability
  • Anonymity
  • Application security
  • Attacks and defenses
  • Authentication
  • Censorship resistance
  • Cloud security
  • Distributed systems security
  • Economics of security and privacy
  • Embedded systems security
  • Forensics
  • Hardware security
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Malware and unwanted software
  • Mobile and Web security and privacy
  • Language-based security
  • Network and systems security
  • Privacy technologies and mechanisms
  • Protocol security
  • Secure information flow
  • Security and privacy for the Internet of Things
  • Security and privacy metrics
  • Security and privacy policies
  • Security architectures
  • Usable security and privacy

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; S&P is interested in all aspects of computer security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.
