CfP 24th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2019)

February 7, 2019

ESORICS is the annual European research event in Computer Security. The Symposium started in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting a wide international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. Papers offering novel research contributions in computer security are solicited for submission to the 2019 Symposium, to be held in Luxembourg. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers discussing industrial research and development.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Submissions must be made through EasyChair at:

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). 

All submissions should follow the LNCS template ( available form ) from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages (using 10-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English. 

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site. Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must agree with Springer LNCS copyright and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.

Papers must be received by the aforementioned dates, 11:59 p.m. American Samoa time (UTC-11).
