CCS'16 Call for Workshops

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM CCS
2016. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the
forefront of security research.

A workshop associated with CCS must be one full day in length. Proceedings of
all such workshops will be available to the workshop attendees. Each workshop
will also have online proceedings through the ACM Digital Library, with a
separate ISBN. Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chairs:
ccs2016-workshopchairs at sba-research.org by April 4, 2016.

* Workshop title
* A draft "Call for Papers" articulating the scope and topics covered by the

* Expected number of submissions and acceptance rate
* Expected number of attendees
* Program chair(s), and, if available, tentative program committee
* A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant

For previously-held workshops, in addition to the above, proposals must provide
the following information, for the most recent incarnation of the workshop:
* Number of submissions
* Number of accepted papers
