Conference Call for Papers

The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 27th USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 15–17, 2018, in Baltimore, MD, USA.

All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. Submissions are due on Thursday, February 8, 2018, 5:00 p.m. PST. The Symposium will span three days, with a technical program including refereed papers, invited talks, posters, panel discussions, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. Co-located workshops will precede the Symposium on August 13 and 14.

System security
Operating systems security
Web security
Mobile systems security
Distributed systems security
Cloud computing security
Network security
Intrusion and anomaly detection and prevention
Network infrastructure security
Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
Wireless security
Security analysis
Malware analysis
Analysis of network and security protocols
Attacks with novel insights, techniques, or results
Forensics and diagnostics for security
Automated security analysis of hardware designs and implementation
Automated security analysis of source code and binaries
Program analysis
Data-driven security and measurement studies
Measurements of fraud, malware, spam
Measurements of human behavior and security
Privacy-enhancing technologies and anonymity
Usable security and privacy
Language-based security
Hardware security
Secure computer architectures
Embedded systems security
Methods for detection of malicious or counterfeit hardware
Side channels
Research on surveillance and censorship
