Call For Papers

Last updated on June 14, 2024

Conflict of Interest

The program co-chairs are seeking collaboration from authors and PC members to avoid having papers reviewed by individuals with a conflict of interest (CoI). PC members will need to point out possible CoIs during the bidding phase. Meanwhile, authors will be prompted during submission to identify any PC members they have CoIs with and to specify the nature of those CoIs.


This means a CoI exists if an author and a PC member:

  • are currently affiliated with the same institution;
  • have previously had a supervisor/PhD student dynamic;
  • have co-authored or collaborated in the past two years;
  • have or had a financial tie within the last two years;
  • are related or share a close personal friendship.


If there are other types of conflicts not listed, authors should reach out to the chairs to discuss and clarify the potential issue.


PC members, including the program co-chairs, with conflicts of interest related to a submission will not participate in its discussion or review. Additionally, authors are obligated to inform the PC Chairs of any situations or reasons that might compromise or potentially sway professional judgment.


The chairs hold the authority to seek additional clarification and may choose to dismiss non-critical conflicts based on their judgement. 

How to submit your paper

Papers submitted need to use the LNCS format from the start. They should be no longer than 16 pages in a 10-point font, not counting references and clearly marked appendices, and should not go over 20 pages in total. While the committee might not read the appendices, the main paper should make sense without them. All papers should be in English.


Submit your papers to this EasyChair link:


EasyChair - how to Submit


We are only accepting PDF formats. Your submissions will not be anonymous.

If your submission does not follow these rules, it might be rejected without a review. If your paper is accepted, you will need to agree to Springer LNCS copyright terms and make sure your paper is presented at the conference.

Paper submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation, fall outside the scope of this call for papers or were already rejected in the first review cycle, might be rejected without a review. Authors will be promptly informed in such cases.

Topics of Interest


We are actively seeking contributions in all realms of computer security. This encompasses a broad spectrum, including but not restricted to:

Seeking submissions of premier, novel, and previously unreleased research papers!  The Symposium will start on September 16, 2024 with an exciting technical program.
