SEC@SAC12
The 11th edition of the Computer Security track
at the 27th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
March 2012, Microsoft Research - University of Trento, Trento, Italy

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Symposium

For the past twenty-seven years, the ACM Symposium on Applied
Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer
scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application
developers from around the world. SAC 2012 is sponsored by the ACM
Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by
The Microsoft Research -- University of Trento, Trento, Italy.

For the past twenty-seven years the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has been a primary forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers and application developers to gather, interact, and
present their research. SAC is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest
Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP http://www.acm.org/sigapp); its
proceedings are published by ACM in both printed form and CD-ROM; they
are also available on the web through the ACM Digital Library
http://www.acm.org/dl. More information about SIGAPP and past editions
of SAC can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigapp The Computer Security
track (11th edition)

The Security Track reaches its eleventh edition this year, thus
appearing among the most established tracks in the Symposium. The list
of issues remains vast, ranging from protocols to work-flows.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* software security (protocols, operating systems, etc.)
* hardware security (smartcards, biometric technologies, etc.)
* mobile security (properties for/from mobile agents, etc.)
* network security (anti-virus, anti-hacker, anti-DoS tools,
firewalls, real-time monitoring, etc.)
* alternatives to cryptography (steganography, etc.)
* security-specific software development practices (vulnerability
testing, fault-injection resilience, etc.)
* privacy and anonymity (trust management, pseudonymity,
identity management, electronic voting, etc.)
* safety and dependability issues (reliability, survivability, etc.)
* cyberlaw and cybercrime (copyrights, trademarks, defamation,
intellectual property, etc.)
* security management and usability issues (security configuration,
policy management, usability trials etc.)
* workflow and service security (business processes,
web services, etc.)
* security in cloud computing and virtualised environments

Submission Guidelines

The submission guidelines must be strictly followed for a paper to be
considered.

Original papers from the above mentioned or other related areas will
be considered. Only full papers about original and unpublished
research are sought. Parallel submission to other conferences or other
tracks of SAC 2012 is forbidden. Each paper must be BLIND in the sense
that it must only include its title but not mention anything about its
authors. Self-reference must be blind too. All submissions must be
formatted using the ACM conference-specific LaTeX style, which can be
obtained from the symposium web page. The standard extension of a
submission in the stated format is 6 pages. Longer papers (up to 8
pages maximum) will imply an additional charge. All papers must be
submitted by 31 August 2011.

There is a symposium-wide paper management system for SAC 2012, which
authors must use to submit their papers. Review and publication of
accepted papers

Each paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process
by at least three referees. Accepted papers will be published in the
ACM SAC 2012 proceedings. Some papers may only be accepted as poster
papers, and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the
proceedings. According to the authors' guidelines, which can be
obtained from the symposium web page, at least one author per paper
must register before their paper is included in the proceedings.
