Submission

Abstract Submissions

You will need to submit your title and abstract by 23:59, anywhere on earth, on the day of the corresponding deadline through the Symposium EasyChair websites by following instructions on how to make a submission.


Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference / workshop with proceedings. The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). As in previous years, ESORICS will present a Best Paper Award chosen by the Program Committee. This award is generously sponsored by Springer.


How to submit your paper

Submitted papers must follow the LNCS template from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages (using 10-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English.
Submissions must be uploaded to the following EasyChair website:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esorics2022
Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions are not anonymous. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must agree with Springer LNCS copyright and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.


Review Process - Revised Submissions

This year symposium will have two review cycles. Within 1.5 month of submission, author notifications of Accept/Revise/Reject decisions will be sent out. For each submission, one of the following decisions will be made:

Accept
Papers in this category will be accepted for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the conference, possibly after making minor changes with the oversight of a shepherd.
Revise
A limited number of papers will be invited to submit a revision; such papers are considered to be promising but need additional work (e.g., new experiments, proofs, or implementations). Authors will receive a specific set of expectations to be met by their revisions. Authors can resubmit such papers, with appropriate revisions, to the spring submission deadline. In revised submissions, the authors should clearly explain in a well-marked appendix how the revisions address the comments of the reviewers. The revised paper will then be re-evaluated, and either accepted or rejected.
Reject
Papers in this category are declined for inclusion in the conference. Papers rejected from the first review cycle may not be submitted again (even in revised form) to the second review cycle. A paper will be judged to be a resubmit (as opposed to a new submission) if the paper is from the same or similar authors, and there is more than 40% overlap between the original submission and the new paper, it will be considered a resubmission.
