About call for workshops

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM ASIACCS 2021. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of security research.

A workshop associated with ASIACCS can be either one full day or half day in length. Proceedings of all such workshops will be available to the workshop attendees. Each workshop will also have online proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a separate ISBN. Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chair by October 13, 2020.

Workshop Proposal Submission

For new workshops, proposals should include all of the following:

  • Workshop title
  • A draft “Call for Papers” articulating the scope and topics covered by the workshop

  • Proposed length (half or full day), format, and agenda
  • Expected number of submissions and acceptance rate
  • Expected number of attendees
  • Names of program chair(s), and, if available, tentative program committee.

  • Number of submissions
