PoPETs/PETS now has 4 deadlines a year; submit whenever you feel ready! Read the CFP below for more details on our hybrid journal/symposium model, which includes the option to resubmit with major revisions to a subsequent deadline. See the web site (https://petsymposium.org/) for full information, including submission guidelines (https://petsymposium.org/authors.php). Papers must be submitted via the submission server for Issue 4 at: https://submit.petsymposium.org/2018.4/
We look forward to your submissions!
The annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) brings together privacy experts from around the world to present and discuss recent advances and new perspectives on research in privacy technologies. The 18th PETS event will be organized by Eticas and held in Barcelona, Spain (dates tbd). Papers undergo a journal-style reviewing process and accepted papers are published in the journal Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs).
PoPETs, a scholarly, open access journal for timely research papers on privacy, has been established as a way to improve reviewing and publication quality while retaining the highly successful PETS community event. PoPETs is published by De Gruyter Open, the world's second largest publisher of open access academic content, and part of the De Gruyter group, which has over 260 years of publishing history. PoPETs does not have article processing charges (APCs) or article submission charges.
Papers submitted to PETS/PoPETs should present novel practical and/or theoretical research into the design, analysis, experimentation, or fielding of privacy-enhancing technologies. While PETS/PoPETs has traditionally been home to research on anonymity systems and privacy-oriented cryptography, we strongly encourage submissions on a number of both well-established and emerging privacy-related topics, for which examples are provided below.
PoPETs also solicits submissions for Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers. These are papers that critically review, evaluate, and contextualize work in areas for which a body of prior literature exists, and whose contribution lies in systematizing the existing knowledge in that area. To be suitable for publication, SoK articles must provide an added value beyond a literature review, such as novel insights, identification of research gaps, or challenges to commonly held assumptions. SoK papers will follow the same review process as other submissions, and will be published in PoPETs and presented at the PETS 2018 event.
Authors can submit papers to PoPETs four times a year, every three months on a predictable schedule. The four submission deadlines for the 2018 volume of PoPETs are in May 2017, Aug 2017, Nov 2017, and Feb 2018. Papers accepted for an issue in the 2018 volume will be presented at PETS 2018. Note that accepted papers must be presented at PETS.
Authors are notified of the decisions about two months after submission. In addition to accept and reject decisions, papers may receive resubmit with major revisions decisions, in which case authors are invited to revise and resubmit their article to one of the following two issues. We endeavor to assign the same reviewers to revised versions.
Submit papers for PoPETs 2018, Issue 4 at https://submit.petsymposium.org/2018.4/. Submitted papers must be anonymized, and may be at most 15 pages excluding bibliography and appendices and 20 pages total. Reviews are double blind. Please see the submission guidelines at https://petsymposium.org/authors.php#submission-guidelines and view our FAQ at https://petsymposium.org/faq.php for more information about the process.
Important Dates for PETS 2018 Issue 4
All deadlines are 23:59:59 American Samoa time (UTC-11) Paper submission deadline: February 28, 2018 (firm) Rebuttal period: April 9 -- 11, 2018 Author notification: April 30, 2018 Camera-ready deadline for accepted papers and minor revisions (if accepted by the shepherd): June 15, 2018
Authors invited to resubmit with major revisions can submit the revised (full) paper two weeks after the stated deadline. Such papers must, however, be registered with an abstract by the usual deadline. All other papers than these major revision resubmissions must be submitted by the stated deadline, including papers submitted to and rejected from previous issues. To benefit from the two-week deadline extension, major revisions must be submitted to one of the two issues following the decision. Major revisions submitted to later issues are treated as new submissions, due by the regular deadline and possibly assigned to new reviewers.
