Call for Posters

PST 2017 --- Call for Posters (including industrially relevant work)

*** Extended deadlines -- Please consider submitting ***

Privacy, Security and Trust  2017 (PST 2017) will be held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, August 28-30, 2017.  PST 2017 is the 15th conference in this series, providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their latest research results, developments and ideas in areas of privacy, security and trust.


General Information

In addition to the conference presentations we are organizing a poster session to disseminate work in progress, interesting novel approaches and late-breaking results. For a poster we value potential of the idea over rigor of the evaluation. We would particularly like to encourage posters on industrially relevant research, e.g. on economic aspect, risk management and best practices (among others). We are looking to receive high-quality abstracts for posters in the following two tracks:

    • Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.
    • General Privacy, Security and Trust.


Important dates

    • Submission deadline (extended): July 21, 2017 - Anywhere on Earth (AoE)
    • Notification of Acceptance (extended): July 28, 2017
    • Author registration (extended): August 1, 2017
    • Pre-proceedings deadline (extended): August 3, 2017
    • Conference dates: August 28-30, 2017


Instructions to Authors

Each accepted poster should be printed on A0 paper and be presented at the conference in a special poster session by at least one author.

Each poster will also be optionally accompanied by a 3-page paper abstract in the proceedings and hence this abstract should not significantly overlap with other papers that, at the time of submission, are under review or have already been published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

Poster papers should be emailed to the poster chair Florian Kerschbaum a subject line starting with "PST 2017 poster submission".

The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore as in previous editions of the conference. At least one author of an accepted poster must register by July 20, 2017.
