    The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 28th USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 14–16, 2019, in Santa Clara, CA, USA.

    Important: The USENIX Security Symposium is moving to multiple submission deadlines for USENIX Security '19. This change includes changes to the review process and submission policies. Detailed information is available at USENIX Security Publication Model Changes.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. There will be two quarterly submission deadlines for USENIX Security '19. Submissions for the winter quarter deadline are due on Thursday, November 15, 2018, 5:00 p.m. PST. Submissions for the spring quarter deadline are due on Friday, February 15, 2019, 5:00 p.m. PST.

  • USENIX ATC '19: 2019 USENIX Annual Technical Conference
    July 10-12, 2019, Renton, WA, United States

    The 2019 USENIX Annual Technical Conference (USENIX ATC '19) seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to systems software, including: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy/power management; bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

    We welcome experience submissions that clearly articulate lessons learned, as well as submissions that refute prior published results. We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work. We particularly encourage new ideas and approaches.


    Submissions due: January 10, 2019 - 3:00 pm
