[apologies if you receive multiple copies of this mail]

Dear list members,

I'm happy to announce that the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy 
will finally get a European sister conference, named EuroS&P. Some of you 
will know that many people in the security community have been trying hard 

for several years now to establish such a dual conference in Europe under 
the IEEE umbrella. The IEEE has recently approved this request, and we are
looking forward to establishing EuroS&P as a premium security and privacy 
conference in Europe.

The first edition of EuroS&P will be held in 2016 already, with submission 

deadline this August 6. 

The cfp of EuroS&P 2016 is attached to this mail. We are looking forward 
to seeing you at EuroS&P and to receiving your submissions to the 
We hope that you will help us make this new venue a success.

Best regards,

Michael Backes
(EuroS&P SC Chair)

The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P) has been 
founded as the European sister conference of the established IEEE S&P 
symposium, and thus as a premier forum for computer security research, 
presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers 
and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering 
novel research contributions in any aspect of security or privacy. 
Papers may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, 
analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of 
secure systems.

Topics of interest include: Access control, Accountability, Anonymity,
Application security, Attacks and defenses, Authentication, Censorship 
and censorship-resistance, Cloud security, Distributed systems security, 
Embedded systems security, Forensics, Formal methods for security, 
Hardware security, Intrusion detection, Malware, Metrics, Mobile security 
and privacy, Language-based security, Network security, Privacy-preserving 

systems, Protocol security, Secure information flow, Security and privacy 
policies, Security architectures, System security, Usable security and 
privacy, Web security and privacy.

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; Euro S&P is interested in 
all aspects of computer 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.

Given the rapidly expanding and maturing security and privacy community, 
hope to increase the acceptance rate of papers that are more 
and "risky," as long as those papers also show sufficient promise for 
creating interesting discussions and questioning widely-held beliefs.

Instructions for Paper Submission:

All submissions must be original work; the submitter must clearly document 

any overlap with previously published or simultaneously submitted papers 
from any of the authors. Failure to point out and explain overlap will be 
grounds for rejection. Simultaneous submission of the same paper to 
venue with proceedings or a journal is not allowed and will be grounds for 

automatic rejection. EuroS&P 2016 includes an author response period, 
gives authors the chance to comment on reviews their papers received. 
may not be withdrawn between the start of the author response period and 
acceptance notification. Contact the program committee chair if there are 
questions about this policy.

Anonymous Submission:

Papers must be submitted in a form suitable for anonymous review: no 
names or affiliations may appear on the title page, and papers should 
revealing their identity in the text. When referring to your previous 
do so in the third person, as though it were written by someone else. Only 

blind the reference itself in the (unusual) case that a third-person 
is infeasible. Contact the program chairs if you have any questions. 
that are not properly anonymized may be rejected without review.

Page Limit and Formatting:

Papers must not exceed 15 pages total (including the references and 
appendices). Papers must be formatted for US letter (not A4) size paper. 
text must be formatted in a two-column layout, with columns no more than 
in. tall and 3.5 in. wide. The text must be in Times font, 10-point or 
with 11-point or larger line spacing. Authors are encouraged to use the 
conference proceedings templates. LaTeX submissions should use 
version 1.8a, dated 2014/09/17. Failure to adhere to the page limit and 
formatting requirements can be grounds for rejection.


Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). Authors should pay 

special attention to unusual fonts, images, and figures that might create 
problems for reviewers. Your document should render correctly in Adobe 
XI and when printed in black and white.

Conference Submission Server:

Papers must be submitted at https://eurosp2016.cispa.saarland/papers/ and 
be updated at any time until the submission deadline expires. The 
site will open July 20, 2015.

Publication and Presentation:

Authors are responsible for obtaining appropriate publication clearances. 
of the authors of the accepted paper is expected to present the paper at 
conference. Submissions received after the submission deadline or failing
