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 ( and Ninghui Li ( 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.

Important Dates

* 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.

ACM CCS 2010 – ACM Computer and Communications Security

ACM CCS 2010 OCT 4-8, 2010


The annual ACM Computer and Communications Security Conference is a leading international forum for information security researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects of computer and communications security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have relevance to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems. Theoretical papers must make a convincing argument for the practical significance of the results. All topic areas related to computer and communications security are of interest and in scope. Accepted paper will be published by ACM Press in the conference proceedings. Outstanding papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Information and System Security.

Paper Submission Process

Submissions must be made by the deadline of April 17, 2010, through the website: Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.

Paper Format

Submissions must be at most ten pages in double-column ACM format (note: pages must be numbered) excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages overall. Submissions must NOT be anonymized. Only PDF or Postscript files will be accepted. Submissions may also be accompanied by a link to a short (at most 3 minutes) video or slide presentation. For more details on the supplemental material, see the CCS 2010 website. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Tutorial Submissions

Proposals for long (3-hour) and short (1.5-hour) tutorials on research topics of current and emerging interest should be submitted electronically to the tutorials chair by May 24, 2010. The guidelines for tutorial proposals can be found on the website.

Important Dates

– Paper submission due: Saturday, April 17, 2010
– Acceptance notification: Monday, June 21, 2010
– Final papers due: Friday, July 16, 2010

Dear Harilaos G. Koumaras,

The International Conference on Signal Processing and Multimedia Applications steering committee invites you to submit a paper to the SIGMAP 2010, to be held in Athens, Greece. Since your research interests seem to be in an area related to signal processing and its current applications, we are sending you an invitation to submit a paper to this conference.

The signal processing field, when combined with multimedia information encompasses a large number of research topics and emerging applications.

Ideas on how to analyse and apply signal processing techniques to solve problems involving multimedia information and technology, either in the scope of R&D projects, engineering or business applications, are welcome. Papers describing new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.

SIGMAP 2010 is part of the International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications (ICETE 2010) that has 5 more conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:
– DCNET: Int’l Conference on Data Communication Networking ( – ICE-B: Int’l Conference on e-Business (
– OPTICS: Int’l Conference on Optical Communication Systems (
