The Network and Distributed System Security 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. The proceedings are published by the Internet Society (ISOC).
How to Submit
Submission instructions are available at: www.softconf.com/a/ndss2010
What to Submit
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 not exceed 20 pages, total, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font, single column format, and 1-inch margins on 8.5"x11" or A4 paper). Technical papers must include the authors' name and affiliation.
The Program 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:
