Call For Papers
The IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (Euro S&P) is the European sibling conference of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (“Oakland”) conference. It is a premier forum for computer security and privacy research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in security or privacy, as well as Systematization of Knowledge papers that systematize previous results. EuroS&P is interested in all aspects of applied computer security and privacy. We especially encourage papers that are far-reaching and risky, provided those papers show sufficient promise for creating interesting discussions and usefully questioning widely-held beliefs. Papers without a clear connection to security or privacy will be considered out of scope and may be rejected without full review.

Broadened Scope

Euro S&P has traditionally focused on technical aspects of computer security and privacy research. This year we are expanding the scope of the symposium to include economic, ethical, legal, and social aspects and interdependencies of computer security and privacy.

We especially encourage submissions that address global aspects of computer security and privacy, including issues particular to parts of the world and communities that are often neglected. We are including experts in these areas in the program committee to ensure that such papers will receive high-quality reviews from well-qualified reviewers.

Systematization of Knowledge Papers

We solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge, as such papers can provide a high value to our community. Suitable papers are those that provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area; support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence; or present a convincing, comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate.

Submissions will be distinguished by the prefix "SoK:" in the title and a checkbox on the submission form. They will be reviewed by the full PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research contributions, the emphasis will be on their value to the community. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and included in the proceedings.

Requirement to Review

As was done for the 2021 symposium, submitting a paper to EuroS&P implies a commitment by the authors to serve as external reviewers, on request, for other papers submitted to the symposium. Each set of authors jointly submitting a paper will cumulatively be asked to contribute up to two external reviews. Requests for external reviews will be for the first round of reviewing (26 September – 3 November 2021).

This requirement exists to help alleviate the review load for PC members, to provide highly expert reviewers on a range of topics, and to provide training for the next generation of PC members (as we expect that many of these external reviewers will be students). If an external review is solicited, a good-faith effort must be made to provide a substantive and timely review; not doing so may risk rejection of the paper whose authors’ are asked to contribute a review. External reviewers will be held to the same standards of confidentiality as the Program Committee. Contact the program committee chairs if there are questions about this policy.

Revision Option

Following the model introduced in 2020, authors of papers that are not accepted may be invited to revise and resubmit their paper for a second round of reviews. Such papers invited for revision will be those for which the program committee sees a path for revision that is likely to lead to acceptance, even though the initial submission as evaluated cannot be accepted, with or without shepherding. If authors who are invited to do so wish to submit a revised paper, they must do so within four weeks of the notification. Revised papers will be re-reviewed by the same set of reviewers that reviewed them originally.

Neither acceptance with shepherding nor invitation to submit a revised paper implies that eventual acceptance is certain.
