USENIX Security 2015 : 24th USENIX Security Symposium
Call For Papers
The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 24th USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 12-14, 2015, in Washington, D.C.
All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. The Symposium will span three days, with a technical program including refereed papers, invited talks, posters, panel discussions, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. Workshops will precede the Symposium on August 10 and 11.

Refereed paper submissions are solicited in all areas relating to systems research in security and privacy, including but not limited to:
Cryptographic implementation analysis and construction, applied cryptography
Programming language security
Privacy-enhancing technologies, anonymity
Human-computer interaction, security, and privacy
Social issues and security
Security measurement studies
This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; USENIX Security is interested in all aspects of computing systems security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, however, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.

Internet Defense Prize
The Internet Defense Prize recognizes and rewards research that meaningfully makes the internet more secure. Created in 2014, the award is funded by Facebook and offered in partnership with USENIX to celebrate contributions to the protection and defense of the internet. Successful recipients of the Internet Defense Prize will provide a working prototype that demonstrates significant contributions to the security of the internet, particularly in the areas of prevention and defense. This award is meant to recognize the direction of the research and not necessarily its progress to date. The intent of the award is to inspire researchers to focus on high-impact areas of research.
You may submit your USENIX Security '15 paper submission for consideration for the Prize as part of the regular submission process. More details will be available here soon. Find out more about the Prize here.
