HOW AND WHERE TO SUBMIT REFEREED PAPERS
The full paper deadline has been extended to February 1, 2004, 23:59 PST, with no further extensions possible. The submission system is now functioning properly, so please proceed to submit your papers.
Papers should represent novel scientific contributions in computer
security with direct relevance to the engineering of secure systems
and networks. Submissions should be finished, complete papers. Papers should be about 8 to a maximum of 16 typeset pages, formatted in 2 columns, using 10 point Times Roman type on 12 point leading, in a text block of 6.5" by 9". Submissions must be received by February 1, 2004, 23:59 PST.
Submissions will only be accepted electronically via this Web
form, and must be in PDF format (i.e., processed by Adobe's Acrobat
Distiller or equivalent). Note that LaTeX users can use the "dvipdf"
command to convert a DVI file into PDF format. Please make sure your
submission can be opened using Adobe Acrobat 4.0. For more details on
the submission process, authors are encouraged to consult the detailed
To insure that we can read your PDF file, authors are urged to follow
the NSF "Fastlane" guidelines for document preparation, and to pay special
attention to unusual fonts.
All submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, and
correctness. The USENIX Security Symposium, like most conferences and
journals, requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to
another conference or publication and that submitted papers not be
previously published elsewhere, or subsequently published within 12
months of acceptance at the Symposium. (We may share information about
submissions with the program chairs of other conferences considering
papers during the review period.) Papers accompanied by
non-disclosure agreement forms will not be considered. All
submissions are treated as confidential, both as a matter of policy
and in accord with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 31, 2004. The
camera-ready final paper due date is May 18, 2004. Each accepted
submission may be assigned a member of the program committee to
act as its shepherd through the preparation of the final paper.
The assigned member will act as a conduit for feedback from the
committee to the authors.
Specific questions about submissions may be sent via e-mail to
the program chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
