Conference Call for Papers


After assessment of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the ESORICS 2020 Organizing Committee has made the decision to move the conference and all associated workshops to an online format. Arrangements for the virtual format are being made and we will post updates as they are announced. This new format will not affect our proceedings, which will be published as Springer LNCS proceedings.


STM (Security and Trust Management) is a working group of ERCIM (European Research Consortium in Informatics and Mathematics). STM 2020 is the sixteenth workshop in this series and will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, in conjunction with the 25th European Symposium On Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2020). The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and trust in ICTs.

Submission: June 22, 2020 July 6, 2020

Notification: August 3, 2020

Camera-ready: August 10, 2020


All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices.

All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final version of accepted papers). The final version of an accepted paper must be in the format required for publication in the LNCS series. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at:

Papers must be received by the deadline of June 22 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time). At least one author of accepted papers must guarantee that they will present their paper at the workshop. As in previous years, the proceedings are planned to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

A paper submitted to STM 2020 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for STM 2020. Furthermore, after you submit to STM 2020, you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before or after submission of the paper to STM 2020, we will reject your paper without review and will also notify the other conference/journal. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.

In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
