The 25th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM CCS)
seeks submissions presenting scientific innovations in all practical and
theoretical aspects of computer and communications security and
privacy.  Papers
should demonstrate their real-world impacts.  Theoretic papers are expected
to make a convincing case for the relevance of their techniques and
findings to secure systems.

*Paper Submission Information*

All submissions must be received before *Friday, May 8, 2018 8:59 PM PDT
(UTC-7)*, through the submission site https://ccs18.hotcrp.com/.  Submitted
papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published
or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop.
All submissions should be properly anonymized and avoid obvious

All submitted papers will be evaluated based upon their scientific merits,
particularly their importance to computer and communications security and
privacy, novelty, quality of execution and presentation.  For papers that
might raise ethical concerns, authors are expected to convince reviewers
that proper procedures (such as IRB approval) have been followed and due
diligence has been made to minimize potential harm. The review process will
be carried out in two phases and authors will have an opportunity to
respond to the first-phrase review.

Authors of accepted papers must ensure that their papers will be presented
at the conference. At least one main (non-student) conference registration
is mandatory for each accepted paper.

*Paper Format*

Submissions must be single PDF files, no more than 12 pages in
double-column ACM format (see https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-
template, with a simpler version here: https://github.com/acmccs/format),
excluding bibliography, well-marked appendices and supplementary material.
Note that reviewers are not required to read any supplementary material,
which however may include reviews from prior submissions and responses to

All submissions must be intelligible and complete without supplementary
material. Authors should not play tricks on the already very dense ACM
paper format or move key components of papers (e.g., related work) to
appendices. Submissions not following the format guideline or anonymization
requirements will be returned without review.

*Conflicts of Interest*

The conference requires cooperation from both authors and program committee
members to ensure a fair review process.  For this purpose, authors must
report all program committee members who may not be able to provide an
unbiased review. Such conflicts include strong personal or professional
relationships such as advisor/ advisee, members of the same organization,
and close collaborators (for example, recent co-authors). More generally,
anyone will be considered in conflict if a reasonable person would question
the individual as an impartial reviewer, once relevant information is
given. The program co-chairs reserve the right to request a more specific
description of a conflict-of-interest declaration from authors.

Program committee members who have a conflict of interest with a paper,
including program co-chairs, will be excluded from evaluation and
discussion of the paper. Since submissions are anonymous to reviewers, it
is important for authors to identify those in conflict. In the case of a
program co-chair, the other co-chair who does not have conflicts will be
responsible for managing that paper.  When both chairs are in conflict, a
committee member will be appointed to handle the paper. Program co-chairs
are not allowed to be authors or co-authors of any submissions.
