19th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS 2012)
Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, North Carolina, US-- October 16-18, 2012

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM 
CCS 2012. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at 
the forefront of security research.

A workshop must be one full day in length. Proceedings of all workshops
will be available (on a CD) to the workshop attendees. Each workshop
will also have on-line proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a
separate ISBN.

Workshop Proposal Submission
For new workshops, proposals should include:
- Workshop title
- A draft "Call for Papers" articulating the scope and topics covered by 
the workshop
- A brief summary and justification for the workshop, including
anticipated benefits to the ACM CCS community.
- Proposed format and agenda
- 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 qualifications, including research and conference/workshop
organizing experience

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
- Number of registered attendees

Please submit workshop proposals by email to the ACM CCS Workshop
Chairs, Venkat Venkatakrishnan (venkat AT uic DOT edu) and Apu Kapadia

the CCS Steering Committee.

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

security and concerns a coherent and important technical topic of high
interest in the community.
- Its novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to

- Its likely impact on the target community, including likely high
- One of the best ways to show likely interest is to have a strong set
of researchers who have agreed to serve on the PC.

- CFP and Website for each workshop by March 15-25
