Call For Workshops

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ASIACCS 2016. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of security research.

A workshop associated with ASIACCS 2016 can be either one full day or half day in length. Proceedings of all such workshops will be available (on a CD) to the workshop attendees. Each workshop will also have on-line proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a separate ISBN. Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chair by October 9, 2015.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

  • The workshop is within the scope of computer and communications security and concerns a coherent and important technical topic of high interest in the community.
  • Its novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to other CCS workshops.
  • Its likely impact on the target community, including likely high participation.
  • One of the best ways to show likely interest is to have a strong set of researchers who have agreed to serve on the PC.

ASIACCS Support for Workshops

If a workshop proposal is accepted, the ASIACCS workshop chair will work closely with workshop organizers. The workshop chair will try to obtain funding to support student travel awards and invited speakers.
