Call For Papers

Symposium Overview
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 29th USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 12–14, 2020, in Boston, MA, USA.

Important: The USENIX Security Symposium moved to multiple submission deadlines last year and included changes to the review process and submission policies. Detailed information is available at USENIX Security Publication Model Changes.

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. Co-located events will precede the Symposium on August 10 and 11.

Analysis of network and security protocols
Attacks with novel insights, techniques, or results
Forensics and diagnostics for security
Automated security analysis of hardware designs and implementation
Automated security analysis of source code and binaries
Program analysis
Data-driven security and measurement studies
Measurements of fraud, malware, spam
Measurements of human behavior and security
Privacy-enhancing technologies and anonymity
