The 2025 edition of USENIX Security will implement a new approach to presenting accepted papers and fostering interactions at the conference. The USENIX Security '25 program co-chairs and the USENIX Security steering committee have prepared a public RFC about the plans for this new model and welcome thoughts from the USENIX Security community by April 22, 2024.

The program co-chairs, Lujo Bauer (Carnegie Mellon University) and Giancarlo Pellegrino (CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security), are seeking nominations for service on their program committee. You may nominate yourself or someone else by Friday, May 24, 2024. USENIX strives for its program committee to represent all aspects of diversity and encourages nominations from those from underrepresented groups.
