CCSW 2020: The ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop
in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS)
November 9, 2020, Orlando, Florida (possibly virtual)
Clouds and massive-scale computing infrastructures are starting to dominate computing and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Major cloud operators are now comprising millions of cores hosting substantial fractions of corporate and government IT infrastructure. CCSW is the world's premier forum bringing together researchers and practitioners in all security aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, including:
Extremely High Impact
CCSW has had a significant impact in our research community. As of May 2020, in the Google Scholar Metrics entry for CCS (which encompasses CCSW), 4 of the top 20 cited CCS papers come from CCSW. In fact, there are a few papers missing from that list that should be on, which likely brings the number to 5-6. One way to look at it is that you're as likely or perhaps more likely to have a top-20 paper publishing in CCSW than in CCS! (thanks to Ari Juels and Kristin Lauter for feedback on this)
Student stipends may be available to attend CCSW. Please apply on the CCS website for a CCS grant (if any) and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know why you would be a good fit for CCSW. We plan on awarding several student travel grants (a function also of the quality of the applications).
Submissions due: 26 July, 2020 (5 days after CCS notification, 11:59pm anywhere in the world)
Author notification: 19 August, 2020
Camera-ready: 21 August, 2020
Workshop: November 9, 2020
CCSW is soliciting full papers of up to 12 pages which will be judged based on the quality per page. Thus, shorter, high-quality papers are encouraged, and papers may be perceived as too long if they are repetitive or verbose. Submissions must be single PDF files, no more than 12 pages long in double-column ACM format (the sigconf template from https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template, with a simpler version at https://github.com/acmccs/format), excluding the bibliography, well-marked appendices, and supplementary material. Note that reviewers are not required to read the appendices or any supplementary material. Authors should not change the font or the margins of the ACM format. Submissions not following the required format may be rejected without review. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library.
Submissions must be anonymous, and authors should refer to their previous work in the third-person. Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented by one registered author. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk immediate rejection. For questions about these policies, please contact the chairs.
One best paper award will be presented during the workshop.
Please submit your paper via EasyChair.
Proposals for panels are also solicited. The proposals are to be concise, up to 2 pages in length, describe the handled topics, name potential panelists and briefly scope the panel for CCSW. Disruptive and controversial panels are particularly encouraged. Please submit your panel proposals as a PDF by email at email@example.com.
Multiple highly-visible CTOs, CISOs and applied cloud security researchers.
TBA (14-16 papers, keynotes, short papers)
