5th ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security
Beijing, China, April 13-16, 2010
Sponsored by: ACM SIGSAC (

To build on the success of ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) and ACM Transactions on Information and System Security (TISSEC), the ACM Special Interest Group on Security, Audit, and Control (SIGSAC) formally established the annual ACM Symposium on InformAtion, Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS). The inaugural ASIACCS was held in 2006. ASIACCS 2010 is the fifth conference of this series.

ASIACCS is a major international forum for information security researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore and exchange the latest cyber-security ideas, breakthroughs, findings, techniques, tools, and experiences. We invite submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network security.

PAPERS: Technical papers describing original unpublished research are solicited. Submissions must not be concurrently under review by a conference, journal, or any other venue that has proceedings.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Submissions must be at most ten pages in double-column ACM format (note: pages must be numbered), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices and at most 12 pages overall. Committee members are not required to read appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be anonymized (an author's name should only occur in references to that author's related work, which should be referenced in the third person and not overtly distinguishable from the referenced work of others). Only PDF or Postscript files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

All papers should be submitted through the website:

Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in conference proceedings. Final proceedings versions will be 10 pages in double-column ACM format; although authors will have the option of buying a limited number of additional pages. In addition to regular papers, some poster papers could also be accepted and included in the proceedings.
