The SpaCCS 2018 conference is the 11th event in the series of conferences
which are devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in computation,
communication and storage. SpaCCS is now recognized as the main regular
event of the world that is covering many dimensions including security
algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and
techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing
fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and
commercial application systems for computation, communication and storage.
As applications of computer systems and networks have permeated in every
aspect of our daily life, the issues of security, privacy, and anonymity
have become increasingly critical. The conference will provide a forum for
the world-class researchers to gather and share their research
achievements, emerging ideas and trends in the highly challenging research

The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in
the world working in the research fields of computation, communication and
storage, with regard to security, privacy, and anonymity aspects of
computer systems and networks. SpaCCS will focus on three broad areas of
computation, communication, and storage, i.e. architectures, algorithms,
techniques, and applications for security, privacy and anonymity.
