The symposium fosters information exchange among research scientists and practitioners of network and distributed system security services. The target audience includes those interested in practical aspects of network and distributed system security, with a focus on actual system design and implementation (rather than theory). A major goal is to encourage and enable the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available security technology. This year’s symposium continues our theme of “theory meets practice” so we encourage submission both from traditional academic researchers as well as industrial practitioners of applied security with innovative insights.
The proceedings are published by the Internet Society.
How to submit
Submission instructions are available at: www.isoc.org/tools/conferences/NDSS08
Both technical papers and panel proposals are solicited. Technical papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All papers from authors perpetrating such "double submissions" will be immediately rejected from the symposium. The Program Committee reserves the right to share information with other conference chairs and journal editors so as to detect such cases.
Technical papers should be at most 12 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font, single column format, and reasonable margins on 8.5"x11" or A4 paper), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Technical papers will appear in the proceedings. Panel proposals should be one page and must describe the topic, identify the panel chair, explain the panel format, and list three to four potential panelists. A description of each panel will appear in the proceedings, and may, at the discretion of the panel chair, include written position statements from the panelists.
Submissions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
Each submission must be accompanied by a separate, electronically submitted Submission Over-view specifying the submission type (paper or panel), the title or topic, author names with organiza-tional affiliations, and must specify a contact author along with corresponding phone number, FAX number, postal address and email address.
Submissions must be received by 11:59pm PDT, September 21, 2007, and must be made electron-ically in PDF format (for example, by using pdflatex). Each submission will be acknowledged by e-mail; if acknowledgment is not received within seven days, contact a program co-chair (see below). Authors and panelists will be notified of acceptance by November 5th, 2007, and given instructions for preparing the camera-ready copy.
