Call for Papers

Papers offering research contributions to the area of security standardisation are solicited for submission to the SSR 2018 conference. Papers may present theory, applications or practical experience in the field of security standardisation, including, but not necessarily limited to:

access control biometrics cloud computing
critical national infrastructure (CNI) protection consistency and comparison of multiple standards critiques of standards
cryptanalysis cryptographic protocols cryptographic techniques
evaluation criteria formal analysis of standards history of standardization
identity management industrial control systems security internet security
interoperability of standards intrusion detection key management and PKIs
management of the standardisation process mobile security network security
open standards and open source payment system security privacy
regional and international standards RFID tag security risk analysis
security controls security management security protocols
security services security tokens smart cards
telecommunications security trusted computing web security

New this year is that SSR will also accept Systematisation of Knowledge (SoK) papers relating to security standardisation, which integrate experience and previous research, drawing new comprehensive conclusions. SoK papers should evaluate, systematise, and contextualise existing knowledge. They should provide a new viewpoint, offer a comprehensive taxonomy, or cast doubt on long-held beliefs, based on compelling evidence. We also welcome SoK papers that document existing standardisation practices and analyse their weaknesses and strengths.

Instructions for Authors

Submissions must be original and must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or to any other conference or workshop that has published proceedings.

Authors submitting a systematisation of knowledge paper should have a title consisting of “SoK: Title”. This is to ensure that the committee is made aware that the paper is an SoK paper, and so will be reviewed with different criteria.

Submitted papers must be in PDF format and written in English. The submission must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and an introduction. Papers should be at most 16 pages (excluding bibliography and appendices) in the standard LNCS format (see instructions at Reviewers are not obliged to read appendices, so the paper must be self-contained without them.

Papers that do not adhere to these requirements will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.
