27th Australasian Conference on Information Security and Privacy
28 - 30 November 2022, Wollongong, Australia

Call for Papers

The 27th Australasian Conference on Information Security and Privacy (ACISP 2022) seeks original papers presenting novel research results in all aspects of information security and privacy. We welcome papers presenting theories, techniques, implementations, applications and practical experiences on a variety of topics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cryptology
  • Authentication
  • Access Control
  • Key management
  • Security protocols
  • Privacy enhancing technologies
  • Blockchain technology
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Cloud security
  • IoT security
  • Software security
  • Database security
  • System security
  • Network security
  • Security policy
  • Digital forensics
  • Lightweight security
  • Cyber-physical systems security
  • Security implementation
  • Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) Papers.

    This year, we also solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize and contextualize existing knowledge for topics of broad interest to the cybersecurity community. Examples of SoK papers include papers that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or provide an extensive and realistic evaluation and comparison of competing approaches to solving specific security problems.

    SoK papers must include the prefix “SoK:” in the title of the paper and will be reviewed by the full PC. They will be accepted based on their treatment of existing work and value to the community.

Instructions for Authors

All the submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration of publication. Submissions must be fully anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements or obvious references. Submissions must be written in English and have at most 20 pages including bibliography using Springer's LNCS package with no changes to the style. Papers should be sufficiently intelligible and self-contained without appendices so that PC members can make decisions without reading appendices. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection regardless of their merits.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Accepted papers will be limited to 20 pages in LNCS format. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference and present their paper.

Given the uncertainty due to COVID-19, we will support remote presentation for those authors of accepted papers who cannot physically attend the conference in Wollongong, Australia.
