18th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM CCS 2011)
OCTOBER 17 - 21, 2011
SWISSOTEL Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA 

The annual ACM Computer and Communications Security Conference is
a leading international forum for information security researchers,
practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas
and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The
conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry
presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects
of computer and communications security. Papers should have relevance to
the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure
systems. Theoretical papers must make a convincing argument for the
practical significance of the results. All topic areas related to computer
and communications security are of interest and in scope. Accepted papers
will be published by ACM Press in the conference proceedings. Outstanding
papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of
the ACM Transactions on Information and System Security.

Paper Submission Process
