Call for Workshops

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACNS 2019. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of cybersecurity research.

A workshop associated with ACNS can be either one full day or half day in length. Post-proceedings of all such workshops are planned to be published in Springer’s LNCS series (to be confirmed). Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chair by Jan 5th, 2019.
