Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2010. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of security research. A workshop must be full day in length.Proceedings of all workshops will be available (on a CD) to the workshop attendees. Each workshop will also offer on-line proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a separate ISBN.
Workshop Proposal Submission
For new workshops, proposals should include:
* Workshop title
* A draft “Call for Papers” articulating the scope and topics covered by the workshop
* A brief summary and justification for the workshop, including anticipated benefits to the ACM CCS community.
* Planned activities
* Expected number of submissions and acceptance rate
* Expected number of attendees
* Program chair(s), and, if available, tentative program committee * A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience
For previously-held workshops, in addition to the above, proposals must provide the following information, for the most recent incarnation of the workshop:
* Number of submissions
* Number of accepted papers
* Number of registered attendees
Please submit workshop proposals by email to the ACM CCS Workshop Chairs, Ting Yu (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ninghui Li (email@example.com). All workshop proposals will be reviewed by the CCS Steering Committee.
Proposal Evaluation Criteria
* The workshop is within scope of computer and communications security and concerns a coherent and worthwhile technical topic.
* Its novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to other CCS workshops.
* Its likely impact on the target community, including likely high participation.
* One of the best ways to show likely interest is to have a strong set of researchers who have agreed to serve on the PC.
* Submissions deadline: February 15, 2010 (Deadline Extended, early submissions are welcome)
* Decisions communicated: February 28, 2010
CCS Support for Workshops
If a workshop proposal is accepted, the ACM CCS workshop chair will work closely with workshop organizers. The ACM CCS workshop chair will help create/maintain the submission and reviewing websites for workshops, and is responsible for monitoring and coordinating organizational aspects of all workshops.
