The 20th Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems will be held at KTH 
Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm, Sweden, October 19-21, 2015.


NordSec addresses a broad range of topics within IT security with the 
aims of bringing together computer security researchers and encourage 
interaction between academia and industry.

following areas:

Applied cryptography
Communication and network security
Network and web security
Security in Internet of Things, M2M
Cloud security
Operating system security
Software security
Language-based techniques for security
Security protocols
Access control and security models
Privacy and privacy-enhancing technologies
Trust and reputation management
Security evaluation and measurements
Commercial security policies and enforcement
Computer crime and cyber forensics
Cyber warfare
Social engineering and phishing
Intrusion detection
Security management and audit
New ideas and paradigms in security
Usable security and privacy
Vulnerability testing
Hardware security
Enterprise security

Contributions should reflect original research, developments, studies 
and experience. Full papers should not exceed 16 pages (including 
references and appendices) in the Springer LNCS format, short papers up 
to 6 pages; the proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science (subject to confirmation). Poster or demo descriptions 
should be up to 2 pages, industry contributions up to 6 pages.

Awards for best paper, best student paper, and best poster/demo will be 
announced at the conference.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have 
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a 
conference with proceedings.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance 
through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are 
withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a 
good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at 
the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related 
past work, including your own. Minimally, please take the following 
steps when preparing your submission:

Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page. Remove 
acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources. Use care in 
referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references 
to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the 
context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as 
you would any other piece of related work by another author.
