Paper Submissions

Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format (author instructions can be found here), including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at . Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of March 7, 2015 (11:59 PM American Samoa time). At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate and must guarantee that the paper will be presented. Note that for authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for one paper only. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The final version of the accepted papers must be in the format required of publications in the LNCS series (a Latex source file will be required).
A paper submitted to DBSec 2015 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for DBSec 2015. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2015, you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission of the paper to DBSec 2015, we will reject your paper without review and will notify the other conference/journal as well. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.

Outstanding papers will be invited for possible publication in the Journal of Computer Security.
