9th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security
Sophia Antipolis, French Riviera, France - September 13-15, 2004

Call for Papers [PDF] [ASCII]

Papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of computer security are solicited for submission to the Ninth European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2004). Organized in a series of European countries, ESORICS is confirmed as the European research event in computer security. The symposium started in 1990 and has been held on alternate years in different European countries and attracts an international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. From 2002 it will be held yearly. The Symposium has established itself as one of the premiere, international gatherings on Information Assurance. Papers may present theory, technique, applications, or practical experience on topics including:

access control accountability intellectual property protection security as quality of service
anonymity applied cryptography intrusion tolerance secure electronic commerce
authentication covert channels peer-to-peer security security administration
cryptographic protocols cybercrime language-based security security evaluation
data integrity denial of service attacks network security security management
dependability firewalls non-interference security models
formal methods in security inference control privacy-enhancing technology security requirements engineering
information flow control information warfare pseudonymity security verification
smartcards steganography subliminal channels survivability
system security transaction management trustworthy user devices information dissemination control
digital right management data and application security identity management trust models and trust management policies

The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case studies and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers discussing industrial research and development. Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them.

To submit a paper, send to a plain ASCII text email containing the title and abstract of your paper, the authors’ names, email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers, and identification of the contact author. To the same message, attach your submission (as a MIME attachment) in PDF or portable postscript format. Do NOT send files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Submissions must be received by March 26, 2004 in order to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by May 30, 2004. Authors of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Authors of accepted papers must follow the Springer Information for Authors’ guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript and use the templates provided there.
