To be considered for invitation, you must send a draft position paper to the Program Chair (email@example.com) by the published deadline. Short indicative submissions are preferred, preferably no more than 2,000 words. You will have the opportunity to extend and revise your paper both before the pre-proceedings are issued, and after the workshop.
At the workshop, you will be expected to spend ten minutes introducing the idea of your paper. This will be followed by a longer discussion. The proceedings of previous workshops in this series have been published by Springer-Verlag as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (see sidebar to the right). If you have not previously attended the Security Protocols Workshop, you may find it helpful to refer to these to get an idea of the flavour.
There are no stipulations as to how position papers should be formatted for the pre-proceedings; anything that fits onto A4 will do. You will have the opportunity to revise your paper after the workshop for the final proceedings (which must be in LaTeX, using Springer’s LNCS template). There is no page limit, but short submissions are encouraged, especially for position papers to appear in the pre-proceedings. We believe the longest final paper in recent years was under 15 pages.
