Conference Call for Papers



September 7-11, 2021, Vienna, Austria

The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P) is the European sister conference of the established IEEE Symposium on S&P. It is a 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 We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in security or privacy. The emphasis of the Symposium is on papers related to building or attacking practical systems, even better if actually deployed, rather than presenting purely theoretical results. For instance, papers may present advances in the design, implementation, analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of secure systems. Given the rapidly expanding and maturing security and privacy community, we hope to increase the acceptance rate of papers that are more far-reaching and risky, as long as those papers also show sufficient promise for creating interesting discussions and questioning widely-held beliefs. Papers that shed new light on past results by means of sound theory or through experimentation are also welcome.

Topics of interest include:

– Access control

– Accountability

– AI-based security- or privacy-enhancing tools

– Anonymity

– Application security

– Attacks and defenses

– Authentication

– Blockchain

– Censorship and censorship-resistance

– Cloud security

– Cryptography with applied relevance to security and privacy

– Distributed systems security

– Embedded systems security

– Forensics

– Formal methods for security

– Hardware security

– Human aspects of security and privacy

– Intrusion detection

– IoT security and privacy

– Language-based security

– Malware

– Measurement relevant to security and privacy

– Security and privacy metrics

– Mobile security and privacy

– Network security

– Privacy-enhancing technologies

– Protocol security

– Secure information flow

– Security and privacy policies

– Security architectures

– Security of AI

– Security usability

– System security

– Web security and privacy

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


We solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge, as such papers can provide a high value to our community. Suitable papers are those that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or present a convincing, comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate.

Submissions will be distinguished by the prefix “SoK:” in the title and a checkbox on the submission form. They will be reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research contributions the emphasis will be on value to the community. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings.
