As in previous years, the workshop intends to attract the cyber security and intelligence (e.g. big data) research community from around the world. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three independent experts, and the acceptance rate will be below 30%.


Important dates

Submission deadline: 30 June 2019

Authors’ notification: 7 July 2019

Camera-ready deadline: 21 July 2019

Conference dates: 23–25 October 2019



All registered papers will be published together with SECURECOM Proceedings by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

SecureComm proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL)

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ConfyPlus system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section). Papers should be in English. Regular papers should be no more than 18 pages LNCS format.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.

Paper review will be single-blind, so there is no need for anonymous submission. Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may the work be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal. Such papers will be rejected without review. The paper must start with a title, an abstract, and keywords.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work.
