Call for Posters

Deadline: November 7 November 9
Notification: rolling

Posters Co-Chair: Kevin Alejandro Roundy, NortonLifeLock Research Group
Posters Co-Chair: Brendan Saltaformaggio, Georgia Tech

ACSAC's virtual poster session provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their new and innovative preliminary work in an informal, interactive setting. Conference attendees can learn about novel on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting. Poster presenters will have an opportunity to discuss their work and get invaluable feedback from knowledgeable sources at an early stage of their research.

What are the topics of interest?

Topics of interest are the same as those for papers. We are looking for posters that address just about any current security topic. We are particularly interested in work that shares real-life experiences including actual system or product implementation, deployment, and lessons learned.

How do I submit a poster?

Poster proposals should be at most 2 pages in length and should briefly describe the objectives of the current work, any accomplishments to date, and future plans. Proposals typically use similar templates to those used by ACSAC conference papers but any format is fine so long as the proposals are submitted in PDF format. When available, a Make Submission button will appear above. Poster proposals are not anonymous, so please make sure you include author information (name, affiliation, country) in your proposal. Any questions should be sent to

What happens if I get accepted?

Authors will be expected to record themselves presenting their research in a 2-minute video. This should be based on a slideshow or similar format using large fonts that will be easily readable by attendees of the video-conference based poster session. At least one author should register for the conference and remotely attend the 1-hour poster session to which their poster is assigned, and be prepared to answer the attendees’ questions about their research. Poster authors do not need to pay the "Publication Surcharge" that is requested of authors submitting technical papers.

A poster is not considered to be a prior publication of the work and may be reused for later publications if appropriate. PDF versions of the posters, the poster proposal documents, and video presentations will all be posted on conference website. These materials will need to be sent to organizers by the following dates:

  • Authors must submit 2-minute video presentations of their research by December 3rd, 2020, to enable organizers sufficient time to compile videos and prepare for the poster sessions.
  • Posters must be submitted by December 9th, 2020, the first day of the ACSAC 2020 conference.
  • Authors may submit revised camera-ready versions of their 2-page poster proposal documents prior to December 7th, when either the original or revised document will be posted to the conference website.
