Call for Posters

Deadline: November 7
Notification: rolling

Posters Co-Chair: Brendan Saltaformaggio, Georgia Tech
Posters Co-Chair: Yonghwi Kwon, University of Virginia

The 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 interested topics?

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. Poster proposals should be 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 need to record a presentation of this 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.

Authors must submit their 2-minute video presentation 1 week prior to the conference. Authors will receive an email invitation to a shared Dropbox to submit the video. Please upload the video presentation to that Dropbox on or before the 1-week deadline.

When uploading your video file, please use one of the following video formats (HD is always preferred):
Apple QuickTime
Apple ProRes 422
Windows Media

Before uploading your video file, name the file using the below convention:

For accepted Poster submissions, a PDF or PPT version of the Poster must be submitted by the first day of the conference. Poster submissions should be formatted as a single-page PDF or PPT using primarily graphical descriptions of the research with large fonts. Authors are encouraged to use this same poster as the basis for your 2-minute video presentation.
