The 15th ACM ASIA Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM ASIACCS 2020) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 1st to June 5th, 2020.  


 Dear Colleagues:

Home Call for Sponsorship and Call for Papers now. The 15th ACM ASIA Conference on Computer and Communications S...



We cordially invite you to share your latest research results related to computer security and privacy at the ACM ASIACCS 2020 conference.  

The ASIA Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS) seeks submissions presenting novel contributions related to all real-world aspects of computer security and privacy. Theoretical papers must make a convincing case for the relevance of their results to practice. Authors are encouraged to write the abstract and introduction of their paper in a way that makes the results accessible and compelling to a general computer-security researcher. In particular, authors should bear in mind that anyone on the program committee may be asked to give an opinion about any paper.  


Building on the success of ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS), the ACM Special Interest Group on Security, Audit, and Control (SIGSAC) formally established the annual ACM Asia Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS). The inaugural ASIACCS was held in Taipei (2006). Since then ASIACCS has been held in Singapore (2007), Tokyo (2008), Sydney (2009), Beijing (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Seoul (2012), Hangzhou (2013), Kyoto (2014), Singapore (2015), Xi’an (2016), Abu Dhabi (2017), Songdo (2018), and Auckland (2019).


IMPORTANT: ASIACCS 2020 will have two review cycles: the first with a submission deadline of August 20, 2019, and the second with a submission deadline of December 10, 2019. Papers rejected from the first review cycle cannot be resubmitted again (even in revised form) to the second review cycle.


ACM ASIACCS 2020 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of security and privacy issues, as well as to identify emerging security research topics.


ACM ASIACCS 2020 invites submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on all practical and theoretical aspects of computer and communications security. Areas of interest for ASIACCS 2020 include, but are not limited to:

●     Access control

-Paper Formatting

Submissions to ASIACCS are to be written in English. Papers must be at most 12 pages including bibliography. However, a maximum of 3 additional pages can be used for well-marked appendices. Note that appendices cannot exceed 3 pages even if the main text is less than 12 pages. Submissions must follow the new ACM conference template, which has been updated for 2017 (Use sigconf style). Submissions should not use older ACM formats or non-standard formatting. Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). Authors should devote special care that fonts, images, tables and figures comply with common standards and do not generate problems for reviewers. Systematization of knowledge papers need to prefix the paper title with “SoK:”. Submissions not meeting the formatting requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits.


-Submission Site

The site for paper submission is: ACM ASIACCS 2020. Please read the above submission instructions before submitting the paper. If you have any questions, please contact:  asiaccs2020_chairs at is.cs.nthu.edu.tw.

-Anonymous Submissions

ASIACCS is employing a double-blind reviewing process. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. Authors should avoid obvious self-references and should appropriately blind them if used. The list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.


-Double and Concurrent Submissions

Submissions to ASIACCS 2020 must not substantially overlap with papers that are published or simultaneously submitted to other venues (including journals or conferences/workshops). Double-submission will result in immediate rejection. Detected violations may be reported to other conference chairs and journal editors.


-Paper Revision and Resubmission

Rejected papers in the August round cannot be resubmitted in the December round. A small number of papers in the August submission round may receive a Revise decision, rather than Accept or Reject, and may be revised and resubmitted to the December round together with the response to reviewers' comments. The revision may include running additional experiments, improving the paper’s presentation, or other such improvements. Papers meeting the expectations will typically be accepted. Additional revisions will be requested only in exceptional circumstances.
