2003 IEEE Symposium on
Security and Privacy
sponsored by
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy
in cooperation with
The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR)

Symposium Committee:
General Chair: Bob Blakley (IBM Software Group - Tivoli Systems, USA) (bblakley
Vice Chair: Lee Badger (Network Associates Labs, USA)
Program Co-Chairs: Steven M.  Bellovin (AT&T Research, USA)

Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been
the premier forum for the presentation of developments in computer
security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers
and practitioners in the field.

Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions
in any aspect of computer security or electronic privacy are
solicited for submission to the 2003 symposium. Papers may represent
advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, or
empirical evaluation of secure systems, either for general use or
for specific application domains. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to, the following:

Commercial and Industrial Security Electronic Privacy
Mobile Code and Agent Security Distributed Systems Security
Network Security Anonymity
Data Integrity Access Control and Audit
Information Flow Security Verification
Viruses and Other Malicious Code Security Protocols
Authentication Biometrics
Smartcards Peer-to-Peer Security
Intrusion Detection Database Security
Language-Based Security Denial of Service
Security of Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal
or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be in Portable
Document Format (.pdf) or Postscript (.ps), at most 15 pages
excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point
font, single column format, and reasonable margins on 8.5"x11" or
A4 paper), and at most 25 pages total. We request the submissions
be in US letter paper size (not A4) if at all possible. Authors
submitting papers in PDF are urged to follow the NSF "Fastlane"
guidelines for document preparation ( ), and to pay special
attention to unusual fonts.  Committee members are not required to
read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without
them. Papers should be submitted in a form suitable for anonymous
review: remove author names and affiliations from the title page,
and avoid explicit self-referencing in the text.

Instructions on electronic submission will appear shortly at .

For any questions, please contact the program chairs, at
oakland-chairs03 at
Paper submissions due: November 6, 2002
Acceptance notification: January 29, 2003
Submissions received after the submission deadline or failing to
conform to the guidelines above risk rejection without consideration
of their merits.  Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate
clearances; authors of accepted papers will be asked to sign IEEE
copyright release forms. Where possible all further communications
to authors will be via email.

The conference may include panel sessions addressing topics of
interest to the computer security community. Proposals for panels
should be no longer than five pages in length and should include
possible panelists and an indication of which of those panelists
have confirmed participation. Please submit panel proposals by
email to oakland-chairs03 at
Panel proposals due: November 6, 2002
Acceptance notification: January 21, 2003
Where possible all further communications to authors will be via email.

A continuing feature of the symposium will be a session of 5-minute
talks, where attendees can present preliminary research results or
summaries of works published elsewhere. Poster presentations related
to these talks are also possible. Abstracts for 5-minute talks
should fit on one 8.5"x11" or A4 page, including the title and all
author names and affiliations. Please submit abstracts by email to
oakland-chairs03 at
5-minute abstracts due: March 17, 2003
Acceptance notification: March 31, 2003
Where possible all further communications to authors will be via email.
