Event description

ACSAC brings together cutting edge researchers, with a broad cross-section of security professionals drawn from academia, industry, and government, gathered to present and discuss the latest security results and topics. With peer reviewed technical papers, invited talks, panels, national interest discussions, workshops, and professional development and training courses, ACSAC continues its core mission of investigating practical solutions for computer security technology.

This year ACSAC will be held at The Condado Plaza Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Centrally located in the trendy Condado Beach area, near historic Old San Juan, the hotel is an ideal location to both attend the conference and spend time relaxing and sightseeing in the warm tropical weather.

Hard Topic Theme: Big Data *for* Security

The security industry is rapidly amassing an incredible amount of information that can be mined for vulnerabilities and allow researchers to observe phenomena that can play an important role in many other aspects of security, from analytics and intelligence support, to training automated classification and reasoning techniques. However, using large datasets in security also faces many technical and scientific challenges. Therefore, we need to design new data-driven techniques and we need to rethink our existing solutions to take advantage of this vast amount of information to improve security. See the Call for Submissions for more information about submitting to the hard topic theme. I encourage everyone to submit timely work on the topic, and look forward to hearing about results at this year’s conference.

Artifact Submission

To help support the reproducibility for research results, this year ACSAC encourages authors of accepted papers to submit software they develop and datasets they use to perform their research and make them publicly available to the entire community. We believe that this is an important initiative that can help the entire community increase its reputation, and make research in the security field proceeds faster by taking advantage of systems previously built by other researchers. See the Call for Submissions for more information about this new initiative.

I look forward to seeing you at ACSAC 2017!!
