Abstract submissions

You will need to submit your title and abstract by 11.59pm on Friday 17 April through the Symposium's EasyChair website by following instructions on how to make a submission.

Paper submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS).

In addition, the Journal of Computer Security will publish a special issue containing selected papers from the ESORICS 2020 proceedings. As in previous years, ESORICS will present a Best Paper Award chosen by the Program Committee. This award is generously sponsored by Springer.

How to submit your paper

The deadline for paper submissions is by 11.59pm on Friday 24 April. All submissions should follow the LNCS template from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages (using 10-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English.

Submissions must be uploaded to the Symposium's EasyChair website. Only pdf files will be accepted.

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must agree with Springer LNCS copyright and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.
