PAPER SUBMISSION
The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing original work, written in English, in the areas of data protection, privacy, and applications security.  Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation.

The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 16 pages, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. PC members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. 


Submissions (in pdf format only) are to be made to the submission web site at
 
    https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dbsec2016


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

A paper submitted to DBSec 2016 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for DBSec 2016. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2016, you must await our
response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission of the paper to DBSec 2016, we will reject your paper without review and will notify the other conference/journal as well. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference and must guarantee that the paper will be presented.
