Call for Papers

ESORICS (European Symposium on Research in Computer Security) is the premier European research conference in computer security. ESORICS started in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting an international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. ESORICS 2014, the 19th symposium in the series, will be held in Wroclaw, south-west Poland, at Wroclaw University of Technology.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of computer security are solicited for submission to ESORICS 2014. The primary focus is on
  • original, high quality, unpublished research, as well as
  • submissions describing implementation experiences, industrial research and developments.

Purely theoretical papers, e.g. in cryptography, must be explicit about the relevance of the theory to the security of IT systems.

Topics of interest include in particular:
  • access control
  • accountability
  • anonymity
  • applied cryptography
  • attack methods
  • authentication
  • audit and certification
  • biometrics
  • data protection
  • design methodology for security and privacy protection
  • digital content protection
  • digital forensic
  • electronic payments
  • embedded systems security
  • inference control
  • information hiding
  • identity management
  • information flow control
  • integrity
  • intrusion detection
  • formal security methods
  • language-based security
  • mobile code security
  • phishing and spam prevention
  • personal identity documents
  • privacy
  • risk analysis and management
  • system security
  • steganography
  • trust models and management
  • trustworthy user devices
  • web security
  • usable security
  • security visualization

security and privacy:
  • architectures
  • economics
  • metrics
  • models
  • policies
  • verification

security and privacy issues in:
  • ad hoc networks
  • cloud scenarios
  • complex systems
  • computer networks
  • database systems
  • distributed systems
  • operating systems
  • telecommunication and location services
  • security and privacy for mobile code
  • pervasive/ubiquitous computing
  • social networks
  • voting and other issues of e-democracy
  • web services
  • wireless systems

There will be awards for outstanding paper and outstanding student paper. A student paper is defined to be one in which at least one of the authors is a student who does not have a PhD at the time of submission. To be considered for the student paper award, the paper must be accompanied by a cover letter signed by all co-authors explicitly attesting to the central role and contributions of the student(s), and the paper must be presented by the student at ESORICS 2014. The cover letter should be in pdf format and uploaded at the same time as the paper.
