Proposal submission:

Papers should include the title, author's name(s), affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the reviewers judging their originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance.  Acceptance and final category depend on reviewer feedback.  All accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in the conference proceedings and placed into the ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of an international journal (TBA).  The submitted papers should be written according to double-column ACM conference format   (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). All papers, special session, tutorial, and workshop proposals must be submitted   electronically via the SIN 2013 Submission Site (https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIN2013/).

Paper categories:

. Research  contributions - Submissions  must  not  substantially  duplicate  work  that  any  of the  authors  has  published  elsewhere  or has submitted simultaneously  to any other conference or workshop that has published proceedings.  Maximum length for the proceedings is 8 pages for full papers, 4 pages for short papers.

. Student  contributions -  Doctoral  /  Masters  Students  are  encouraged  to  propose  papers  on  ongoing  research.  Please add "(Student contribution)" to the title. Maximum length for the proceedings is 4 pages for student papers.

. Industrial contributions - Authors from industry and government enterprises are welcome  to submit original  papers that describe  their experiences, challenges, and applications in security. Maximum length for the proceedings is 8 or 5 pages.

. Position  papers  /  fast  abstracts  -  Authors  are  also  encouraged  to  propose  position  papers  /  fast  abstracts  on  practical  studies  and experiments,  critiques of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.  Maximum length for the proceedings is 2 pages for fast abstracts and position statements.
