DeSECSyS Factsheet

Important Dates


Information security and privacy have already been established as some of the most crucial aspects of technology especially in a world that is migrating to digital applications by the day. This has inevitably led to the emergence of technologies that support the safety and dependability of the ever-increasing sensitive data handled by these applications. Additionally, besides these technologies which target security by their design, there are other technologies, such as machine learning, which could potentially be applied to security in innovative schemes.

The goal of the DeSECSys workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion among cyber-security researchers and practitioners to discuss the various applications, opportunities and possible shortcomings of these technologies and their integration. Effectively we aim to produce a collection of state-of-the-art research about emerging security technologies, their applications, their shortcomings and their verification with a focus on their uncompromised, in terms of security, safety and dependability, integration. Industry experience reports and empirical studies are also welcome.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Submission Guidelines (tentative)

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or have been submitted, in parallel, to any other venue with formally published proceedings. The workshop proceedings will be published online by Springer (more information would become available later).

All submissions must follow the original LNCS format http://www.springeronline.com/lncs from the time they are submitted. We invite the following types of papers:

Regular paper submissions should be at most 18 pages, including the bibliography but excluding well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Regular papers should describe original work that is not previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere.

The workshop will also consider short research paper submissions of up to 8 pages, using the same template. Research papers aim at fostering discussion and collaboration by presenting preliminary research activities, work in progress and/or industrial innovations. Research papers may summarize research results published elsewhere or outline new emerging ideas.

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. Submissions are to be made via the following web site (link to be provided) You will be requested to upload the file of your paper (in PDF format only). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Each accepted paper must be presented by an author, who will have to register by the early-bird registration deadline.

Submission are to be made on Easychair.
