Would you like to share a provocative opinion, interesting preliminary work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion at this year’s USENIX Security Symposium? The poster session is the perfect venue to introduce such new or ongoing work. Poster presenters will have the entirety of the evening reception to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive feedback from attendees.
To submit a poster, please submit a draft of your poster, in PDF (maximum size 36" by 48"), or a one-page abstract via the poster session submission form by Thursday, July 9, 2015, 9:00 p.m. EDT. Decisions will be made by Thursday, July 16, 2015. Posters will not be included in the proceedings but may be made available online if circumstances permit. Poster submissions must include the authors’ names, affiliations, and contact information. At least one author of each accepted poster must register for and attend the Symposium to present the poster. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
We will host a WiP/Rump session on the evening of Wednesday, August 12, 2015. This is intended as an informal session for short and engaging presentations on recent unpublished results, work in progress, or other topics of interest to the USENIX Security attendees. As in the past, talks do not always need to be serious and funny talks are encouraged! To submit a WiP talk, email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, August 12, 2015, noon EDT.
What opportunities await security students graduating with a Ph.D.? On Thursday evening, students will have the opportunity to listen to informal panels of faculty and industrial researchers providing personal perspectives on their post-Ph.D. career search. Learn about the academic job search, the industrial research job search, research fund raising, dual-career challenges, life uncertainty, and other idiosyncrasies of the ivory tower. If you would like to speak in Doctoral Colloquium, please email email@example.com.
Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions (BoFs)
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs), informal gatherings of persons interested in a particular topic, will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.
