Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format excluding

bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages in total.

Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and therefore

the paper should be intelligible without them.

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 the accepted papers). The final version of the accepted

papers must be in the format required for publications in the LNCS

series. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection

without consideration of their merits.

Papers must be received by the deadline of February 15, 2020 (11:59 PM American Samoa Time).

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will

be presented at the conference.

A paper submitted to DBSec 2020 cannot be under review for any other

conference or journal during the time it is being considered for

DBSec 2020. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2020, you must

await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your

paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission

of the paper to DBSec 2020, we will reject your paper without review

and will notify the other conference/journal as well. This restriction

applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.
