Call For Papers

The goal of this workshop is to provide an outlet for publication of the results of all properly conducted experimental (cyber) security research. This will encourage people to share not only what works, but also what doesn't. Given the increased importance of computer security, the security community needs to quickly identify and learn from both success and failure. This is the primary goal of this workshop. The specific technical results of the experiments are of secondary importance for this workshop.

Topics include, but are not limited to

Unsuccessful research in experimental security
Methods and designs for security experiments
Experimental confounds, mistakes, mitigations
Successes and failures in reproducing the experimental techniques and/or results of earlier work

The workshop focuses on research that has a valid hypothesis and reproducible experimental methodology, but where the results were unexpected or did not validate the hypotheses, where the methodology addressed difficult and/or unexpected issues, or that identified previously unsuspected confounding issues.


March 26: submissions deadline
May 7: decisions to authors
June 15: final papers
July 18 and 19: workshop
