About EuroSec

The 16th European Workshop on Systems Security (EuroSec) aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security of computer systems and networks. The objective of the workshop is to discuss novel, practical, systems-oriented work. The workshop will precede the EuroSys 2022 conference.

EuroSec encourages systems security researchers to share early iterations of bleeding-edge ideas with the community, before they are further developed into full papers. Reciprocally, authors receive feedback to help steer and improve their research to its full potential. Many EuroSec papers later form the basis for full conference papers presented at one of the top venues in computer security.

Topics of Interest

EuroSec seeks contributions on all aspects of systems security. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • New attacks, evasion techniques, and defenses
  • Operating system security
  • Mobile systems security
  • Malicious code analysis and detection
  • Web security
  • Network security
  • Reverse engineering and binary analysis
  • Virtual machines and hypervisors
  • Measuring security
  • Trusted computing and its applications
  • System security aspects of privacy
  • Identity management and anonymity
  • Systems-based forensics
  • Vulnerability discovery, analysis, and exploitation
  • Embedded systems security
  • Cybercrime ecosystem and economics
  • Security of critical infrastructures

In accordance with the spirit of EuroSys, we also seek:

  • Experience with existing systems
  • Reproduction or refutation of previous results
  • Negative results and early ideas
  • Early and promising ideas

Paper submissions

You are invited to submit papers of up to 6 pages in double-column ACM format, excluding the bibliography. Submitted papers must use the latest ACM sigconf proceedings template. You should not modify key aspects of the template, such as font face, spacing, etc. The template, as well as instructions on how to use it, can be found here. All submission should be anonymized; papers that have not been properly anonymized may be rejected without review.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Only original, novel work will be considered for publication. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of EuroSec in the ACM Digital Library. One author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop and present the paper for it to be included in the proceedings.

Submissions should be made online at https://eurosec23.hotcrp.com/
