USENIX Security '11 Call for Papers
How and Where to Submit Refereed Papers
Papers are due by Thursday, February 10, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. PST (firm
deadline). All submissions will be made online via the Web form. Submissions should be finished, complete papers.
Paper submissions should at most 13 typeset pages, excluding
bibliography and well-marked appendices. There is no limit on the
length of appendices, but reviewers are not required to read them.
Once accepted, papers must be reformatted to fit in 16 pages, including
bibliography and any appendices. The submission must be formatted in a
2 columns, using 10 point Times Roman type on 12 point leading,
in a text block of 6.5" by 9". If you wish, please make use of this
LaTeX file and style file
when preparing your paper for submission. Reviewers may not take into
consideration any portion of a submission that is over the stated limit.
Paper submissions must be submitted in a form suitable for anonymous
review: no author names or affiliations may appear on the title page,
and authors should avoid revealing their identity in the text. When
referring to your previous work, do so in the third person, as though
it were written by someone else. Only blind the reference itself in the
(unusual) case that a third-person reference is infeasible. Contact the
program chair if you have any questions. Papers that are not properly
anonymized may be rejected without review.
Important: Note that the anonymity policy and page limits have changed
from prior years.
Submissions must be in PDF format. Note that LaTeX users can use the
"pdflatex" command to convert a LaTeX document into PDF format. Please
make sure your submission can be opened using Adobe Reader.
All submissions will be judged on originality, relevance,
correctness, and clarity. In addition to citing relevant published
work, authors should relate their submission to any other relevant
submissions of theirs in other venues that are under review at the
same time as their submission to the Symposium. Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Questions? Contact your program chair, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the USENIX office, email@example.com.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX Security '11 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by Sunday, April 17, 2011. The
final paper due date is Tuesday, June 7, 2011 (firm deadline). 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.
All papers will be available online to registered attendees before the symposium. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org. The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the first day of the symposium, August 10, 2011.
Specific questions about submissions may be sent to the
program chair at email@example.com.
