DBSec is an annual international conference covering research in data and applications security and privacy. The 35th Annual IFIP WG 11.3 Working Conference on Data and Applications Security and Privacy (DBSec 2021) will be hosted in Calgary, Canada (though it is likely to occur virtually given current international travel restrictions).
The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of data protection, privacy, and applications security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to (txt):
|access control||knowledge discovery and privacy||security and privacy in the Internet of Things|
|anonymity||methodologies for data and application security||security and privacy in location-based services|
|applied cryptography in data security||network security||security and privacy in P2P scenarios and social networks|
|authentication||organisational and social aspects of security||security and privacy in pervasive/ubiquitous computing|
|big data security||privacy||security and privacy policies|
|data and system integrity||secure cloud computing||security management and audit|
|data protection||secure distributed systems||security metrics|
|database security||secure information integration||threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management|
|digital rights management||security and privacy in crowdsourcing||trust and reputation systems|
|identity management||distributed and decentralised security||trust management|
|intrusion detection||web security||wireless and mobile security|
Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format (author instructions can be found here), excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages in total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions are to be made to the submission website at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dbsec2021. All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final version of the accepted papers). The final version of the accepted papers must be in the format required for publications in the LNCS series. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Papers must be received by the deadline of March 29, 2021 (11:59 PM American Samoa time). A paper submitted to DBSec 2021 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for DBSec 2021. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2021, you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission of the paper to DBSec 2021, we will reject your paper without review and will notify the other conference/journal as well. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs https://goo.gl/hbsa4D in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
