Conference topics

Areas of interest for SSTIC cover all computer security topics (systems, network, software, hardware, cryptography, malware, etc.), both from the offensive and the defensive points of view. The Program Committee will favor technical and scientific contributions, however submissions on juridic, regulatory or organizational topics will also be considered. Demonstrations and proofs of concepts are encouraged. Serious and complete analyses of products, or comparative studies based on reproducible tests will also be examined. However, submissions promoting a product will not be accepted.

Submission process

Submission FORMAT is OPEN. In particular, submissions in English are accepted.

After the review process, the Program Committee may either choose to accept a submission as a regular paper (publication in the proceedings and a 30-minute presentation), to accept it as a short paper (a 15-minute talk), or to reject the submission.

Even though the submission format is open, the PC needs to assess the quality and the originality of each article. Authors are therefore encouraged to provide as much material as possible to describe their contributions, possibly a complete article. Submissions limited to a simple introduction will probably be refused.

Authors of submissions accepted as regular papers must provide a camera-ready version of their article, 30 pages maximum, written in French or English, before the corresponding deadline. If an author fails to meet these requirements, the PC may cancel the presentation. Final versions will preferably use the LaTeX template, available at the SSTIC-Author-Template GitHub repository. The Word format can be used, but a tighter timeline will be applied.

Articles can be submitted online on www.sstic.org. A given author may submit several articles.

Authors of submissions accepted as regular papers will have the registration fee offered. The seat of short papers authors will be booked and its price reduced to half. Moreover, students who do not receive a grant from their school or university will have their fees reimbursed by the STIC association.
