Call for Posters (download a text version)

High-quality poster presentations are requested to augment the SACMAT 2016 program. We solicit poster abstracts that present recent and late-breaking research on topics relevant to SACMAT. We also welcome authors of recent (2015, 2016) papers on computer security to present their work at the SACMAT poster session. At the conference, best posters will be honored with prizes. Poster abstracts of up to two pages (excluding references) should be formatted like technical papers, but not anonymized; titles should start with the keyword "Poster:" Poster abstracts will appear on the SACMAT website prior to the conference, but will not be included in the conference proceedings. For posters on previously published papers, please submit a secondary document with the full bibliographical citation (title, authors, venue, etc.), a link to the published (official) version, and an abstract. All submissions must be in PDF format. Submissions should be emailed to William Garrison by May 8, 2016, 11:59pm ET. Submission Requirements:. Please include the text "SACMAT POSTER" in the email subject line.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of access control are solicited for submission to the 21st ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2016). Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by the ACM in the symposium proceedings.

Topics of Interest

We are soliciting submissions covering many topic areas that have relevance to access control. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Applications
    • Attribute-based systems
    • Authentication
    • Big data
    • Biometrics
    • Cloud computing
    • Cryptographic approaches
    • Cyber-physical systems
    • Databases and data management
    • Design methodology
    • Distributed and mobile systems
    • Economic models and game theory
    • Enforcement
    • Hardware enhanced security
    • Identity management
    • Internet of Things (IoT)
    • Mechanisms, systems, and tools
    • Models and extensions
    • Obligations
    • Privacy-aware access control
    • Policy engineering and analysis
    • Requirements
    • Risk
    • Safety analysis
    • Theoretical foundations
    • Trust management
    • Usability
    • Web applications

Paper Submission and Format

Papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair conference management system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sacmat2016). Papers must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" X 11" paper, and be no more than 5MB in size. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submission will print easily on simple default configurations.

Papers must be written in English. Authors are required to use the ACM format for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The length of the paper (in the proceedings format) must not exceed ten US letter pages, excluding well-marked appendices, and no more than twelve pages in total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so papers must be intelligible without them.

The submission must be anonymous, so information that might identify the authors - including author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious self-citations - must be excluded. It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is preserved when citing their own work.

All submissions must contain a significant original contribution. That is, submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. In particular, simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Where appropriate, relevant related work, including that of the authors, must be cited.

Submissions that are not accepted as full papers may be invited to appear as short papers. At least one author from each accepted paper must register for the conference prior to the camera-ready deadline.

Panel Proposal Submission

Panel proposals should be no longer than two pages, and should identify potential panelists, indicating those who have confirmed their willingness to participate. We especially solicit panels with participants from industry and/or government. Proposals can be e-mailed to the Panels Chair, Jianwei Niu (niu@cs.utsa.edu).

System Demonstration Submission

To be considered for presentation, authors should submit a four-page demonstration proposal prepared according to the formatting guidelines described above for regular papers. However, demonstration proposals are not subject to double-blind review, hence author name(s) and affiliation(s) should be included in the submission. Demonstration proposals will be included in the final proceedings. The demonstration proposal should clearly describe (1) the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated, and (2) one or more demonstration scenarios that describes how the audience, interacting with the demonstration system or the demonstrator, will gain an understanding of the underlying technology. Submissions will be evaluated based on the motivation of the work behind the use of the system or technology to be demonstrated and its novelty.

Demonstration proposals or questions about the system demonstration session can be emailed to the demonstrations chair, Hassan Takabi (takabi@unt.edu).
