SysSec 2020 Call for Papers

Systems Security Symposium 2020

Call For Papers

The IEEE-INCOSE-NDIA Systems Security Symposium seeks research papers and application studies which focus on the development of secure, safe, and resilient systems. This symposium attempts to address the convergence of cybersecurity, safety, and engineering with interest in the effective application of security principles, methods, and tools to complex systems such as cyber-physical systems, autonomous systems, transportation vehicles, medical devices, large IoT systems, and other systems of interest. Preference will be given to papers and case studies which bridge theory to practice.

Submission Details

The conference caters to both practitioners and academics, providing a forum to exchange ideas and experiences on technology, methodology, applications, study cases, and practical experiences. Given this unique desire, two types of paper submissions are offered:

  • Theory & Methods: Papers or Extended Abstracts addressing novel ideas, theoretical issues, technology, methodology, or detailed studies. These academic-oriented papers will be peer reviewed and prioritized according to their contribution.
  • Case studies and Practical Experiences: Papers presenting practical ideas, lessons learned, and real-world achievements. Papers are reviewed for relevance but not necessarily academic contribution. Submit Now!

Papers and extended abstracts of both categories will be peer reviewed. Papers will be published in the proceedings with an 8-page maximum. Extended abstracts (typically 3-5 pages) will not be published, but will be available to the conference attendees. Student papers are encouraged in both categories.
