Call for Papers

Papers offering research contributions to the area of security standardisation are solicited for submission to the SSR 2022 conference. SSR will also accept Systematisation of Knowledge (SoK) papers relating to security standardisation, which integrate experience and previous research, drawing new comprehensive conclusions. SoK papers should evaluate, systematise, and contextualise existing knowledge. They should provide a new viewpoint, offer a comprehensive taxonomy, or cast doubt on long-held beliefs, based on compelling evidence. We also welcome SoK papers that document existing standardisation practices and analyse their weaknesses and strengths. We also encourage submission of Vision papers relating to security standardisation. The vision track is intended to report on work in progress or concrete ideas for work that has yet to begin. The focus in the vision track is to spark discussion with the goal to provide the authors helpful feedback, pointers to potentially related investigations, and new ideas to explore. Suitable submissions to the vision track include traditional work-in-progress pieces such as preliminary results of pre-studies, but also research proposals and position papers outlining future research. Papers may present theory, applications or practical experience in the field of security standardisation, including, but not necessarily limited to:


Submission Server

Papers must be submitted to EasyChair and may be updated at any time until the submission deadline expires.


Authors submitting a systematisation of knowledge paper should have a title consisting of “SoK: Title”. This is to ensure that the committee is made aware that the paper is an SoK paper, and so will be reviewed with different criteria.

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to journals or other conferences/workshops that have proceedings. The Programme Chairs will reject papers that, in their sole judgement, blatently violate the requirement for author anonymity. Submissions must be written in English and should be at most 13 pages not including references or appendices. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices when deciding whether to accept or reject the paper. Papers must be typeset under the same rules as EuroS&P 2022 submissions, specifically, typeset in LaTeX in A4 format, and using the template linked to in the EuroS&P Call for Papers. Papers not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The accepted papers will be published via IEEE Xplore in a volume accompanying the main IEEE EuroS&P 2022 proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.
