CCSW 2024: The ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop
in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS)

18th October 2024, Salt Lake City, U.S.A.

dates | submission | organizers


The CCSW workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in all security aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, including:


·      Secure cloud resource virtualization mechanisms

·      Secure data management outsourcing

·      Practical privacy and integrity mechanisms for outsourcing

·      Foundations of cloud-centric threat models

·      Secure computation outsourcing

·      Remote attestation mechanisms in clouds

·      Sandboxing and VM-based enforcements

·      Trust and policy management in clouds

·      Secure identity management mechanisms

·      New cloud-aware web service security paradigms and mechanisms

·      Cloud-centric regulatory compliance issues and mechanisms

·      Business and security risk models and clouds

·      Cost and usability models and their interaction with security in clouds

·      Scalability of security in global-size clouds

·      Trusted computing technology and clouds

·      Binary analysis of software for remote attestation and cloud protection

·      Network security (DOS, IDS etc.) mechanisms for cloud contexts

·      Security for emerging cloud programming models

·      Cloud based side-channel attacks and countermeasures

·      Applied cryptographic schemes and protocols for the cloud


We would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and controversial ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is to act as a fertile ground for creative debate and interaction in security-sensitive areas of computing impacted by clouds.

Submit your paper

CCSW is soliciting full papers of up to 12 pages which will be judged based on the quality and not on their length. Thus, high-quality papers are encouraged even with smaller than 12 pages length. Submissions must be single PDF files, no more than 12 pages long in double-column ACM format (the sigconf template from, with a simpler version at, 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.


Proposals for panels are also solicited. The proposals are to be concise, up to 2 pages in length (at least 10 point font, two columns), describe the handled topics, name potential panelists and briefly scope the panel for CCSW. Disruptive and controversial panels are particularly encouraged.
