Thanks for joining us virtually!

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.

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.

Host an ACSAC Viewing Party

While the COVID-19 pandemic has curtailed our ability to travel, we would like to provide elements of the conference experience such as meeting and socializing with others as we would do if we were in person. If you or your organization are interested in hosting an "viewing party" for ACSAC where others in your area can collectively view the conference and meet with each other, we would be happy to help facilitate these activities. Please contact us for more information.
