CCSW 2021: The ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop
in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS)
November 14, 2021, Seoul, Korea
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:
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: July 27, 2021 (7 days after CCS notification, 11:59pm anywhere in the world)
Author notification: on/about September 4, 2021
Camera-ready: on/about September 20, 2021
Workshop: November 14, 2021
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 here.
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.
