Join Us in Austin!

December 6-10, 2021

The Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC) brings together cutting-edge researchers, with a broad cross-section of security professionals drawn from academia, industry, and government, gathered to present and discuss the latest security results and topics. With peer reviewed technical papers, invited talks, panels, national interest discussions, and workshops, ACSAC continues its core mission of investigating practical solutions for computer and network security technology.

ACSAC will be held at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, Texas. The hotel is 8 miles from the airport, with many attractions and restaurants within walking distance or a short ride.

We invite you to submit your work to the conference. As an internationally recognized forum where practitioners, researchers, and developers meet to learn and to exchange practical ideas and experiences in computer and network security, we welcome your contributions. In addition to peer-reviewed papers on new work, we also welcome case studies on real-world applications, panels featuring interactive expert, and workshops comprised of 1-2 days sessions on hot topics.

Hard Topic Theme: Deployable and Impactful Security

This year's hard topic theme solicits research results and technologies that are more practical and applied, and can be potentially deployed, where they can have a direct impact on improving the quality of cybersecurity in real-world systems. Deployable and impactful security generally involves the development of defensive solutions, rather than simply exposing weaknesses and vulnerabilities. While ACSAC has always solicited work on applied security, by having it as a hard topic theme we hope to put greater emphasis on deployability and impactfulness.
