ESORICS (European Symposium on Research in Computer Security) is the premier European research conference in computer security.  ESORICS started in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting an international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. ESORICS 2013, the 18th symposium in the series, will be held in the UK at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of computer security are solicited for submission to ESORICS 2013.  The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research, but submissions describing implementation experiences and industrial research and development are also encouraged.  All topics related to security, privacy and trust in computer systems and networks are of interest and in scope.  Papers on applications of cryptography to topics in the scope of the conference are welcome, but papers on theoretical cryptography must be explicit about the relevance of the theory to the security of computer systems and networks.

For the first time at ESORICS, there will be awards for outstanding paper and outstanding student paper.  A student paper is defined to be one in which at least one of the authors is a student who does not have a PhD at the time of submission.  To be considered for the student paper award, the paper must be accompanied by a cover letter signed by all co-authors explicitly attesting to the central role and contributions of the student(s), and the paper must be presented by the student at ESORICS 2013.  The cover letter should be in pdf format and uploaded at at the same time as the paper.

Paper Submission

Authors must adhere to the following guidelines.

  • Submissions must not be anonymised.
  • Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been (a) published in a journal or the proceedings of another conference (b) submitted to a journal or (c) submitted to another conference with proceedings.
  • Submitted papers must adhere to the LNCS template and should be at most 16 pages in this format, excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices.  Submitted papers must be no longer than 20 pages.
  • Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.
  • Submissions must be written in English and must be in pdf format.
  • Papers must be submitted via the EasyChair conference system at

Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.  Note that authors of accepted papers must guarantee that one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference.
