The Network and Distributed System Security Symposium fosters information exchange among researchers and practitioners of network and distributed system security. The target audience includes those interested in practical aspects of network and distributed system security, with a focus on actual system design and implementation. A major goal is to encourage and enable the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available network and distributed systems security technology. The proceedings are published by the Internet Society (ISOC).
Special emphasis will be made to accept papers in the core theme of network and distributed systems security. Consequently, papers that cover networking protocols and distributed systems algorithms are especially invited to be submitted. Moreover, practical papers in these areas are also very welcome.
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 be written in English, not exceed 20 pages (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. Reviewing is double-blind, and technical papers should thus be properly anonymized to conceal the authors' identity.
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:
The deadline for full submissions, made electronically in PDF format, is 11:59 pm EDT, August 10, 2010. However, titles and abstracts of papers must be received by 11:59 pm EDT, August 6, 2010. Each submission will be acknowledged by email; if acknowledgement is not received within seven days, contact the Program Chair. Authors and panelists will be notified of acceptance by October 11, 2010, and given instructions on how to prepare the camera-ready copy.

NDSS 2011 will feature several best paper awards. There will be at least a best paper award and a best student paper award. We will seek additional opportunities to further honor authors of strong papers.
