Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. Following this story of success, IEEE initiated the European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P), which is organized every year in a European city.

The 4th EuroS&P edition will be held on June 17-19, 2019 in Stockholm, at the KTH main campus.

Call for paper description

The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P) is the European sister conference of the established IEEE S&P symposium. It is a premier forum for computer security research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in security or privacy. The emphasis is on building or attacking real systems, even better if actually deployed, rather than presenting purely theoretical results. Papers may present advances in the design, implementation, analysis, verification, or empirical evaluation and measurement of secure systems. Papers that shed new light on past results by means of sound theory or thorough experimentation are also welcome.

Author guidelines

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive. EuroS&P is interested in all aspects of applied computer security and privacy. Papers without a clear application to security or privacy, or purely theoretical, will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.

Given the rapidly expanding and maturing security and privacy community, we hope to increase the acceptance rate of papers that are more "far-reaching" and "risky," as long as those papers also show sufficient promise for creating interesting discussions and questioning widely-held beliefs.
