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

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 following:
- 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

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).
