Dear colleague,

Apologies for multiple postings.


23rd ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2018)
June 13-15, 2018
The Omni Severin Hotel
Indianapolis, USA


General Call for Contributions

The organizing committee of the 23rd ACM Symposium on Access Control  
Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2018) invites contributions in all  
aspects of access control. The symposium will provide participants the  
opportunity to present work at different levels of development, from  
early work on promising ideas to fully developed technical results as  
well as system demonstrations.

Call for Research Papers
Papers offering novel research contributions are solicited for  
submission. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and  
published by the ACM in the symposium proceedings. In addition to the  
regular research track, this year SACMAT will host a special track --  
“Blue Sky/Vision Track”. Researchers are invitedto submit papers  
describing promising new ideas and challenges of interest to the  
community as well as access control needs emerging from other fields.  
We are particularly looking for potentially disruptive and new ideas  
which can shape the research agenda for the next 10 years. We  
encourage submissions that present ideas that may have not been  
completely developed and experimentally evaluated.All submissions to  
the Blu Sky/Vision Track should follow the  same ACM format of the  
regular track but the length of the paper in the proceedings format  
must not exceed ten US letter. Submissions to this track should NOT be  
blinded for review.

Submissions to the regular track covering any relevant area of access  
control are welcomed. Areas include, but are not limited to, the  
-	Applications
-	Attribute-based systems
-	Authentication
-	Big data
-	Biometrics
-	Cloud computing and network access control management
-	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

Regular Track Paper Submission and Format
Papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair  
conference management system 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 in  
the following link:

The length of the paper in the proceedings format must not exceed  
twelve US letter pages.
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, submittedpapers 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. Wherever appropriate, relevantrelated 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.

Call for Posters
SACMAT 2018 will include a poster session to promote discussion of  
ongoing projects among researchers in the access control field.  
Posters can cover preliminary or exploratory work with interesting  
ideas, or research projects in early stages with promising results in  
all aspects of access control. Authors interesting in having a poster  
must submit a poster extended abstracts of up to three pages  
(including all sections) formatted like regular research papers, but  
not anonymized; titles should start with the keyword "Poster:".  
Accepted poster abstracts will be included in the conference  
proceedings. All submissions must be in PDF format. Submissions should  
be emailed to poster session co-chair, Jianwei Niu  
(jianwei.niu at utsa.edu)by Apr 18, 2018, 11:59pm ET. Submission  
Requirements: Please include the text "2018 SACMAT POSTER" in the  
email subject line.

Call for Demos
The demonstration proposal should clearly describe (1) the overall  
architecture of the system or technology to be demonstrated, and (2)  
one or more demonstration scenarios that describe 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 should be no longer than four pages and should  
use the formatting guidelines described above for regular papers.  
However, demonstration proposals are not subject to double-blind  
reviewing, hence the author(s) name and affiliation(s) should be  
included in the submission. A two-page description of the  
demonstration will be included in the final proceedings. Please e-mail  
the submission directly to the Demonstrations Chair, Axel Kern  
(axel.kern at betasystems.com).

Call for Panels
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, Murat Kantarcioglu (muratk at utdallas.edu).
