The 23rd ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM CCS 2016)
October 24 - October 28, 2016, Hofburg Palace, Vienna, Austria

This year, CCS will again include poster/demonstration sessions in order to 
provide a forum to present and discuss works in progress, industry demonstrations 
of new applications or techniques, research demonstrations and test beds, 
upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in 
the field of computer and communications security. One of the key goals 
of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. 
Participation of researchers and developers from industry and posters/demonstrations 
reporting on joint work between industry and academia are therefore especially 

Authors are asked to submit a short proposal that describes the main contributions 
of the poster or demonstration. Proposals should contain a brief abstract, place 
an emphasis on the motivation for the work, and summarize contributions being 
presented. Preliminary results may also be included. The proposal should clearly 
state the difference of the work that will be presented with any paper published 
or under submission on the same topic. Presentation proposals will be evaluated 
primarily on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, facilitate 
the exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations. Authors of accepted poster 
proposals will be provided instructions for preparing the posters. Tripods will 
be provided to display all accepted posters. Authors of demonstration proposals 
should clearly describe the amount of space and any specific equipment (e.g., 
tables, power strips, etc.) required for the demonstration via email to the 
Poster/Demo co-chairs.

Posters/Demos Submission
Proposals should adhere to the ACM double-column format with 3 pages maximum 
(i.e., including title, abstract, content, and any references). Proposals 
are not blinded, and must contain the authors’ names, affiliations, and contact 
information. All poster titles should begin with the keyword “POSTER”. 
Submissions that are not formatted as described above risk rejection without 
review. All submissions must designate a single corresponding author. In order 
to be included in the conference, at least one presenter per accepted poster/demo 
must register for the conference. The accepted posters/demos will be published 
in the CD proceedings.
